Oriel College

Most people are staying at Oriel College, one of Oxford’s oldest colleges and a short walk from the Philosophy Centre.

Cherwell Boathouse

The dinner on Thursday evening is at the Cherwell Boathouse restaurant:

The Cherwell Boathouse is in North Oxford, so we will organise a coach from Oriel College to the restaurant and back later.

The Head of the River

We are visiting The Head of the River on Friday lunchtime. It is a pub on the river Thames about 15 minutes from the Philosophy Centre going south, and a lovely stroll through ChristChurch meadow if the weather is kind.

New College

New College is, as the name indicates, one of Oxford’s oldest colleges, but not as old as Oriel. It’s website www.new.ox.ac.uk is not as informative as Wikipedia's entry.

Saturday early evening drinks will be in the Cloisters which is a short walk from the Philosophy Centre, after which we have dinner at the Undercroft. Space is limited to around 30 people so unfortunately it will be first-come first-served for the graduates attending the conference!

Local Restaurants

There are many local restaurants to choose from only a short walk from the Philosophy Centre. Saturday lunchtime is your opportunity to sample these pleasures in groups or even alone! Simon particularly recommends the following:
