On the 24th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: steep yourself in history at Blenheim Palace, learn more about the world around you at Oxford University Museum of Natural History, thenexamine the collection at Pitt Rivers Museum, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Magdalen College.
