If that’s not enough for you, you can always take a tour of the historic Bodleian Library or check out some literary-based films showing now around Oxford, including: Gulliver’s Travels, Red Riding Hood, Winnie the Pooh, Never Let Me Go and Submarine. Or just go outside and punt in the riverboats and dream about Alice in Wonderland and the rabbit hole.
