Lots of nice views inside the Oxford colleges - if you can get in! I found that much more difficult last time I went there than when I actually studied there forty-five years ago. Some nice walks outside the town too, I recall, but the place is pretty packed with tourists most of the time.

As an alumnus you’ll have free admission to at least one college!

I’m watching Martin Parr in the Wex-sponsored event this evening. He gave quite a good plug for the Bristol Photo Festival this year. So there’s something there to provide an extra dimension to a visit, with the MPF and the RPS running a photo book fair. If the tourists get too much in the harbour area, or if it rains, there’s another option to fall back on.

Bristol would be very convenient for me.
I had hoped to spread my wings post-lockdown, as my daughter lives near Reading. However, she and her family will be moving to Mons in Belgium very soon, so I will no longer be visiting Reading. My youngest daughter lives in Brisol so my wife could shop whilst I shoot.

Bristol can work for me. Some sunset shots of suspension bridge in late June / early July (when sun is setting at its most north westerly point in the year) would be nice.
