Keble College Chapel

Hands down Keble College Chapel was the most impressive chapel of the Oxford Colleges we visited. We did not see all of the college chapels. I might have a few posts about the Keble Chapel in the near future. On our last full day in England, today Friday the 23rd of September, we checked out of our hotel in Woodstock, took a taxi to our lodging in Oxford and dumped our luggage there at 10:30 am. Their check in time is 4pm. This taxi ride was our favorite with a friendly driver who actually interacted with us. We walked and walked and walked some more. We went to the Museum of Natural History. We walked through University Park to the Cherwell where we saw a bench dedicated to J.R.R. Tolkien, we visited the Balliol Chapel (the only thing open to visitors on the campus). We headed to our favorite pub in Oxford…home away from home, the Turf Tavern where we enjoyed a conversation with a mum and daughter from Canada. We walked toward Keble College and were happy that we could view the chapel for no charge. I took many photos in this amazing chapel. We were so happy that we took the time and that they were open to visitors on this day. We still had time to kill before we could check in so we walked to Little Clarendon Street to return to Gail’s Bakery for some evening treats for our hotel room. Back to our hotel and able to check in at 3:30. Happy for that since our feet had had enough of walking on uneven and cobbled streets. So happy to report we did not huff and puff on this trip. Our conditioning was good and it was just feet and knees that complained not our lungs or hearts! Woohoo!!

We are flying home tomorrow so no updates until possibly Monday. Cheers!

  1. I love wandering around Oxford, dipping in and out of colleges. And pubs. A favourite of mine is the Eagle and Child, where Tolkien, Lewis and others used to share a jar or two. Hope you had a great trip.

    • Hello Mike, Unfortunately the Eagle and Child has been closed since sometime in 2020. The Lamb and Flag was also closed because of refurbishments. We had planned to go to both but alas we couldn’t. Thankfully we had enjoyed the Eagle and Child in 2014 and in 2004! Thank you, we have had a wonderful trip!

  2. It sounds like the perfect final day and I’m also so happy for the walking you could do and all the beautiful places you could visit! It will be good to come home to your bed again too.

  3. What a wonderful trip you’re taking, Ellen! I was in Toronto the last few weeks and now back and just found out you’ve been in Oxford, England! Wish I were there. šŸ™‚
