Merton Street, Oxford


Although it is just a stone's throw from Oxford's busy High Street. cobbled Merton Street is a peaceful throwback to another era. It is lined by some of the city's oldest colleges, including Merton College, which dates from the thirteenth century. As you stroll past the ancient academic and ecclesiastical buildings, it is easy to imagine what this citadel of learning was like before the tourists arrived in force.
