Day Twelve! May 23, 2014 Oxford University, Stratford and Warwick Castle!

   Today was our last official day of scheduled tours! We went to Oxford University, Stratford and Warick Castle! Once again it was a rainy, gloomy day.
   Oxford University was interesting! It is the second highest rank prestigious school. Oxford contains 38 separate colleges and you only apply to one in particular. If you are not accepted into one of the colleges you can not apply to another one. People such as Bill Clinton and Isaac newton attended Oxford! Alice in Wonderland, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, and Lord of the Rings were all written by authors who attended Oxford along with many other books!
   Stratford is the town where William Shakespeare was born! We actually got to see the house in which he was born in. Right down the road was an amazing cafe/bakery where we ate lunch. I seriously had THE BEST carrot cake ever! They had soooooo many different desserts, it made the decision really hard. 
   The entire time we were at Warick Castle it was raining! My favorite part was the dungeon where criminals were held to rot away. It sounds weird I know... But it was a very unique place.
