Ben Le Vay's Eccentric Oxford (Bradt Travel Guides free pdf Dreaming spires, honeyed stone, cycling dons ...forget all that tourist twaddle, says Benedict le Vay. Find out the secrets the colleges don't want you to know, the inside track on the best pubs and eating places, the scandal and gossip about nutty professors and disgraceful students past and present, the brilliant stories about the great, the good and the bad. William Morris called Oxford 'a perfect jewel' of a city- Benedict le Vay goes in search of the quirkier gems among its medieval back alleys. Here roam batty dons, daft students, barmy aristocrats and political firebrands. Who does that gargoyle remind you of? Why is a shark plunging into that man's house? When do students jump naked into the River Cherwell as Latin hymns are sung? What powers the 'Cosmic Triangle' of vibrant East Oxford? How do you control a punt without looking like a plonker? This title covers: the pubs where Inspector Morse and Bill Clinton enjoyed a pint- where to eat a great fry-up in a unique setting- where to find a weird museum- and, calendar of annual eccentric events. Press acclaim for le Vay's previous "Bradt Eccentric" guides: 'Wonderfully barmy', 'The ultimate guide', 'A must', 'Endlessly fascinating', 'One of the best'.
