My sister and brother-in-law are visiting us so we've been doing quite a lot of sightseeing. We went to Oxford the other day and I took a few photographs to record the day.
Quirky courtyard and buildings, I love the rounded room in the middle.
A quick visit to the covered market
and like everyone else, we admired the cakes in the cakeshop

Henry Moore's Three Piece Reclining Figure No. 2 outside the Ashmolean
A Fayoum portrait inside the museum
A Barbara Hepworth sculpture
the modern extension to the museum is always a pleasure to see
An early Greek kouros from Delphi
a sculpture of Apollo from the 5th century BC
a leisurely, very satisfying lunch in the tearooms of the Randolph
the William Baker House which houses Waterstones
an old timber-framed building.
