A few weeks back, I accompanied the bestfriend RS on her day trip to film in Oxford. She’s studying journalism and as part of her course she’s frequently out filming and interviewing people. She needed a helping hand and Oxford is only 1/2 an hour away from Reading AND I hadn’t seen her in a while so I thought why not!
We found ourselves in Worcester College, the place where the interviewee teaches.
My first thought was that this place looks really nice, and serene! Well then again, most colleges in Oxford give you that appeal. But the more I explored, the more I was sure that Worcester was interesting in its own way and if I were to go to Oxford, I’d like to pick Worcester.
The size of Worcester is just nice really. It gives you that big-sized appeal but after walking around it doesn’t feel too spaced out like how some other colleges feel. But the garden is big however and it is accompanied by a lake which was my favourite part.
Other favourite parts include the stairs which was apparently featured in one of the Harry Potter movies…
…and finding Emma Watson’s pigeon hole!
Got a bit too exited when I finally found out which college Emma goes to but too bad easter break had already started so the college was mostly empty and that my best bet was just this. Stared for a bit but you know, not that that meant anything.
All in all it was a splendid afternoon in Oxford. I’ve been to Oxford a couple of times but mostly explored town and bits of certain colleges. So it was nice exploring another college on a deeper basis. Indeed a lovely college this is.
