Hertford College, Oxford is one of many of the residential colleges we pass today on the obligatory hop-on-hop-off bus circuit. It was the scene for the filming of many scenes for the TV series of Brideshead Revisited.

It is the Oxford equivalent of O-Week... although there is nothing as crass as Aussie drunken revelings here. Well dressed freshers are carrying their essentials into their new digs for the start of the academic year and accordingly, all colleges are closed to visitors on the one day we are in town.

So we walk and admire the buildings and shops, absorb the history, nibble lunch and walk some more.

And before too long, it is time to head back to the Dog Inn for another bargain dinner... 2 meals for £9.95! Hilary and I catch a bit of UK TV for the first time... "Shocking Tattoo Bodies" featuring one man with tattoos covering 100% of his body - and white tatts on top of them, and the world's most tattooed senior!

In between the ad for uniformdating.co.uk catches our attention. Yes, an online dating site for those of you who like firemen, nurses or any other type of partner in a uniform!
