Exploring Oxford’s treasures

As a wind down towards the weekend, OLC students got together this afternoon to visit two of Oxford’s most distinctive landmarks – the Sheldonian Theatre, a spectacular Grade II listed building where Oxford University’s graduation ceremonies take place, and the famous circular domed Radcliffe Camera, an architectural gem housing some 600,000 books in underground rooms.

Students enjoyed learning about the history and significance of these two spectacular buildings situated in the heart of the city. They also seemed rather captivated by the imposing emperor stone heads which surround the gates of the Sheldonian, although some students did find their stares a little intimidating!
