Off we go to Oxford! The city where most of the scenes from the movie Harry Potter was shot. I was very excited to see the place. It was my first time riding the train to go to another city from London and so I had to be extra careful not to jump inside the wrong train.
We took a train ride going to Bicester Village first. It’s a world-famous shopping destination just an hour away from London and is located at the outskirts of Bicester. They have all the nicest high-end outlet shops, including Celine, Marni, Gucci, Giuseppe Zanotti, Alexander McQueen, Chloe, and a lot more. They have over 131 stores and I’m sure you can imagine me and my sister Liz going gaga inside the stores.
Here’s Ejay Leung filming us for our Stylized show. It’s actually the episode showing this week so please do watch it on ETC Channel. They have replays everyday.
From London, we took the Bicester Town exit and then from there they have a bus shuttle going to Bicester Village. It’s just a 10 minute bus ride.
First two stores I saw upon entering the massive outlet village.
A lot of the people inside Bicester Village had luggages with them so they can just put everything inside the luggage once they’re done shopping. Smart move.
Probably the store where I shopped the most.
After spending hours inside Bicester Village, we had a snack and then moved on to Oxford University. If I’m not mistaken it’s 20-30 minutes from Bicester Village.
The houses and buildings are more old school and all the places are picturesque. I really feel like I’m in the Harry Potter film! Lol.
Hand-made puppets. So cute!
The very famous Christ Church.
Spotted Brewer street. Perfect for taking outfit shots.
Christ Church’s war memorial garden.
The collegiate University of Oxford contains within it almost 40 independent educational institutions/ colleges. Christ Church is the largest. It is also the Cathedral seat of Oxford.
All the exteriors of Christ Church is just so amazing. I’ve never seen a university this beautiful. I know it’s a famous destination for tourists too so I was very lucky to get really good shots of the church with only a few people in the picture.
The Museum of the History of Science. I wasn’t able to go inside the museum because it was getting late and we might miss the train going back to London.
Do wait for my last travel diary soon- I saved the best for last. BMS.
