The bridge of sighs. This is literally a tiny bridge connecting two buildings together. Not huge or extraordinary but nice to look at.

I was expecting something bigger and grander. It is a link between two building and not worth the walk. The best view of it is from the tom of the Sheldonian, which is worth the walk. And why so many people risk being hit by...More
