This beautiful Gothic church from the 13th century will be discovered on your walk around Oxford and it's a place you must go to see in all its glory. You don't have to believe to truly be taken aback by the Church of St Mary the Virgin by its gorgeous interior and intricate floor - it's even more breathtaking when you find out that this church was a haven for C.S. Lewis. The concept of the daughters of Eve and the sons of Adam were crucial to the Chronicles of Narnia due to C.S. Lewis' faith. Additionally, when you find out that one of the the exits for the church stands the lamp post that inspired the meeting point of Lucy's and Mr Tumnus, you will experience what it is to be overwhelmed.
At a small cost, you can pop up the tower and get panoramic views of Oxford to appreciate the cobbled streets and old buildings. Oxford is a place of beauty, brains, and beautiful buildings. No wonder this place homes one of the most prestigious universities in the world with the creation of some of the most genius in the world.
