Love this view and always take the opportunity to visit the Turf whilst there for a pint of real ale, a good meal and a look at two of Oxfords iconic buildings in one hit.

It was very interesting to learn that this bridge is called the Bridge of Sighs because of the students sighing when passing there for their exams. This was one of the top attractions to see in Oxford and it makes for beautiful pictures.

This looks such a pretty sight. It was built so students didn't have to break the curfew at night, and could still travel between the buildings. It looks very atmospheric in the evenings.

Google bridge of sighs and you will see it is horizontal. Google rialto and you will see that this oxford feature is based on the rialto. Just annoy the tourist guide when they take you around Oxford
