The rain and our inability to go inside the Colleges did not disturb me too much.
You see, when I planned the trip and had booked our airline tickets and London hotel room I had not really figured where else we would visit. But I quickly realized that we could choose between the south east (e.g. Dover) and south west (e.g. Cornwall) of London or west and north of London.
I had visited Bath with my mother and enjoyed it but we were there for only one day and I wanted to return. And Oxford is enroute to Bath.
In addition, it is a hopping off point for the Cotswold and for Blenheim Palace, both of which I wanted to see. In other words, Oxford, itself, was not high on my list of priorities.
