As a fan of unique architecture, the textures on every face of the walls and edges of this building were really incredible! No two rooms were the same, but the theme translated so beautifully between all of them.
For all the Harry Potter fans reading, you will recognize the room in the next set of photos right away. This is the dining hallfrom the movies, which actually still functions as a dining hall today. Sadly, the people in the photos in the frames don’t watch you as you walk by. They’re not animated (thank goodness, because that would be suuuper creepy in real life). ;)
This really isn’t a blog-worthy outfit photo at all (had to wear comfy clothes for the 2 hour commute from the downtown of London to Oxford), but I wanted to show the perspective of how big this building really is. My friend and I are standing on ledges in the main grass area. Fun fact: this area is not open to the public. There’s a security guard whose job is to stand at the edge of the center sidewalk to scold people who try to enter.
If you ever get a chance to visit Oxford, I highly recommend stopping by Christ Church for a few hours. Even if you’re not a Harry Potter fan, this building is stunning and such a treat to wander through.
