A Day Out In Oxford by Terry Harry with captions by Greg Coles.

Some time ago Ruth and I had booked to go to London. It was around the time our Queen had died so we could not get into the capital. Instead we took a trip to Henley-On-Thames and then Oxford.
It was quite a miserable day to walk the streets so we got on to an on-off bus tour run by the Oxford CitySightseeing Company. It was a wonderful tour made very special by our Tour Guide Greg Coles.
One slight negative was the photos were all taken on the move rather than getting off and on because of lack of time before dark. You will also see proof of rain drops on some of the photos.
Oxford is a truly excellent city with a massive history, we hope to return one day soon. If you go make sure you get on the bus tour. hopefully with Greg.

Greg Coles a superb tour guide who supplied us with all the captions, thank you
