“The Oxford Botanic Garden — a cool, quiet wonderland....

"The Oxford Botanic Garden — a cool, quiet wonderland. Oxford was once home to Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a mathematics lecturer at Christ Church, the largest college at @oxford_uni. Charles was a brilliant logician and a deacon in the Church of England, but you probably know him best by his pen name, Lewis Carroll. The fantastical world of "Alice in Wonderland" — written for Alice, the 10-year-old daughter of the college's dean — is rooted in Oxford. The public garden that comes closest to realizing Alice's dream of wandering "among those beds of bright flowers" is the Oxford Botanic Garden.
