Yesterday started with another battle through the Tube out to Paddington station to get the Train to Oxford . One little line mistake caused us to do a last minute evacuation to get the next tube or we would end up in Hicksvillle. Once in Paddington Station , the very helpful English workers assisted us in Ticket purchasing....i seriously think that some English people literally don't understand ENGLISH!.
The trip took about 50 minutes to get there with the highlight being going through the beautiful town of Slough, the town that the TV show , The Office is set. Drab is the word that comes to mind.
unfortunately had to drink them both while she went off to order a jug of Pimms. Jess things to tick off on her European Summer was to have a Pie in an English Pub so the food order was made easy. It was a beautiful warm day sitting in the super cool little pub eating Pie and drinking Pimms.
There were tours going everywhere with guides talking crap but all Jess wanted to find was the Hall that they filmed Harry Potter in ( or designed the set from this Hall ?? ) We found the building that it was supposed to be in but they were charging to get in and saying the hall was closed, jess tried to sneak in but i was being an old fart . We walked down to the next old building and Jess just walked past the booth and kept going i was forced to follow, there were some great gardens and buildings . As we kept walking through there was a blackboard sign saying ' the hall is open for visitors, Bang , Jess was off and in the hall in a flash. It was the Hall that she was searching for. It looked awesome, got some great shots.
