At the end of the afternoon at Morton College, we went to visit the Church of Notre Dame of Oxford near High Street. It was the first time that I had walked through the church door many times. Because of its proximity to Oxford's famous high street, we, like the people who came to Oxford, saw the magnificence of this church with a thousand-year history almost in the first place. It is said that the church was a common Church of all colleges in its early days. All the ceremonies, formal meetings and examinations were held here. Later, the activities of various colleges became more and more independent, and the role of churches gradually weakened. And the high bell tower and the appearance of the Great Bank of the church are also one of the landmarks of the old city of Oxford. But when you go inside the church, you can see that the church is not magnificent. The tall bell tower can be seen from a distance and attracts many visitors to the church. Despite the four pounds of tickets required to get to the Bell Tower, there are still a lot of tourists waiting in line. We have no desire to climb high, so we just look inside the church and walk up to the second floor of the church to see the panorama to feel the magnificence inside the church. In the church, there are some people rehearsing stage plays, without stage background, the venue is simply arranged a few benches, and several contemporary young student-like people are rehearsing vividly. The performance in the church is really a kind of live performance, which is also the first time to see the internal manifestation of the church.
It is the bishop of Oxford University. It has a history of nearly a thousand years. Its architecture is magnificent and magnificent. This is a post-Gothic building with a view of Oxford standing on a spire. Opening time is 9 - "00 to 17 - "00, July and August are open to 18 - "00. Tickets are 3 pounds. The steps to the top are very narrow, and one has to walk sideways, and there is only one passageway up and down. The view of the church tower of Notre Dame University is unique and beautiful. Up to the top, it's like walking through time and space tunnel through ancient times. Gothic spires are everywhere in the city. And then that church is the brightest and warmest church I've ever seen.
The University Church of St Mary the Virgin, which I personally feel is a must among many of Oxford's attractions, must be the earliest and the first to visit, because it has a tower that is said to be one of the most beautiful minarets in Britain and the highest commanding height in the region, so it must be climbed. The ticket to climb the tower is 4 pounds for adults and 3 pounds for children. Because on the top of the tower, you can enjoy the whole Oxford Colleges, and only here can you take a picture of the Bodleian Library and the Universal College. It can be said that once you've been here, you don't have to go to Wanling College anymore. Ha-ha. However, the passageway at the top of the tower is not circular and must return to the original road. Therefore, the number of people climbing the tower is limited, and the passageway is very narrow, allowing only one person to pass through, so we must arrive early to avoid queuing and crowding.
Notre Dame University Church, the Cathedral of Oxford University, has a thousand years of history. It is situated on the side of Oxford High Street. Its high bell tower and magnificent appearance are also landmarks of the ancient city of Oxford. Visits to churches are free, tickets for 4 are required to climb the Bell Tower, and there are many visitors waiting in line to climb the Bell Tower, but it feels very worthwhile to climb the Bell Tower and have a panoramic view of Oxford.
It's a scenic spot. Besides St. Mary's Church, Shelton Theatre and the Bodley Library are among them. These two are also Oxford landmarks. St. Mary's Church is the Cathedral of Oxford University. It has a history of nearly a thousand years. Its architecture is magnificent and magnificent. There is a cafe on the first floor. Before visiting, we choose to have afternoon tea here. We have enough to climb the Bell Tower. Haha. Taking a picture of afternoon tea in the background of the Bodley Library is also very feel. The church is very ordinary. There is nothing special to see, but on her tower we can see Radcliff Cameraff and Alsouls Co., which have the highest mirror rate in Oxford. Llege panorama, which is also a classic angle that has appeared in many movies, is very spectacular. (Fig. 8-13) Tickets, 4 pounds, are still required to climb the Bell Tower. Upon ascending the Bell Tower, two classics are displayed in front of you immediately. Looking to the right, it's the magnificent twin towers. That college is All Souls College. The college on the left is called Brasenose College, named after a bronze nose decoration in Hall.
Notre Dame Cathedral is the tallest building in Oxford. It is the Cathedral of Oxford University. It has a history of more than 700 years. Decorated with exquisitely carved beak beaks and climbing up the 127 steps, the Oxford City and surrounding countryside are at a glance.
British poet Matthew Arnold once called Oxford the City of Dreaming Spires. Oxford University and its colleges are crowded with innumerable churches, auditoriums, ancient towers and bell towers. These buildings stretch out their majestic spires to the sky, and all over the University city, they form a peculiar beauty. Boarding the tower of St. Mary's Church, the Cathedral of Oxford University, overlooks the Millennium Academy, giving you a panoramic view of the magnificent and solemn spires one after another. Thirty-eight independent colleges and six private schools constitute the unique college system of Oxford University, and the city combs its urban context according to its college system. The unimportant alleys between the high walls of the college always give people surprises. The precipitation of history seems to fill every corner of Oxford Street with stories.
