Home to one of the world's oldest and most famous universities, Oxford is as famous for its historical architecture as for the stream of academic greats who have studied, lived, and taught in the city. Be sure to visit both Christ Church and Magdalen, two of the university's most famous and gorgeous colleges to get a sense of the history and tradition that surrounds this important institution. Book enthusiasts should stop by the Bodleian Library, one of the oldest and most beautiful libraries in the world, before making their way to the Oxford University Press Bookshop and Blackwell's Books, which was founded in 1879 and features 10,000 square feet of retail space tunnelled beneath the Trinity College Gardens. For a drink in a historic atmosphere, visit The Bear, which was founded in 1492 - watch out for the low ceilings though!


The capital of Wales, Cardiff has grown out of its industrial beginnings to become a vibrant cultural center. Start with a walk along the picturesque waterfront, where you will discover a variety of interesting buildings, open spaces, and public art, before heading to the centrally-located and stunning Cardiff Castle. Then, make your way to the east side of the harbour to explore the old Norwegian Church, which was built in 1869 for the large population of Norwegian sailors living in the area. Go for a picnic and afternoon walk in Bute Park, a green corridor that stretches along the River Taff for 1.5 miles. If you're looking for a night out, head to St. Mary's Street, which is loaded with pubs and clubs, or the slightly smaller Mermaid Quay. For a quieter drink, go to Cardiff Cottage or The Old Arcade.
