While London has many interesting places to offer, many people may want to consider going to places outside of London that also offer interesting information and places to see. Such places allow people to explore Roman and British history and some of them can be easily reached from London by train.
Both Oxford and Bath can easily be reached by riding a train from London. Oxford is a city located in central southern England that is famous for its prestigious university, the University of Oxford, which was established in the 12th century. This university is made up of 39 Oxford colleges, which are all self-governing and financially independent. They have also six permanent private halls, which are akin to colleges except that they tend to be smaller, and were established by particular Christian denominations. The colleges and halls are closed academic communities that attract students and researchers from various disciplines, cultures and countries. This tends to result into outstanding research achievement that has made Oxford prestigious in various fields of study.
Bath is a city in the county of Somerset, England, and is an interesting place to visit because of its Roman-built baths. The city became a spa in 60 AD when the Romans constructed the baths and a temple located in the valley of the River Avon. Bath Abbey was established in the seventh century and actually became a religious centre. The building of the Bath Abbey was actually rebuilt during the twelfth and sixteenth centuries. There were claims that the waters of the spa in Bath had curative powers and the city became known as a spa town during the Georgian era.

A blast down the M3 and then continue your journey on the N332 will take you to the City of Salisbury. This stunning cathedral city is famous for its cathedral and lovely water meadows located in the middle of the city. Also, you will find Stonehenge nearby and other ancient monuments which remind you of the close connection to the ancient cult of druids which Great Britain still enjoys. On your way home from Salisbury, you may quickly want to divert into Winchester. Believe it or not, Winchester was once the English capital. It is here you will find treasures such as King Arthur’s Round Table that takes pride of place on the wall of Winchester cathedral. Winchester itself is worth a visit even it is just to enjoy a cup of tea in one of the local tea rooms which beckon with their delight of cake and other treats.”
