My UK Trip: Part III Almost Done

Day 8-10: Cardiff and Tintern, Wales; Oxford and Woodstock, England; and Glasgow, Scotland

Day 8: Cardiff and Tintern Wales; Oxford, England
- Went to Cardiff Castle (we were not able to take pictures inside except for the one of the Madonna statue)
- Jumped on a train to Cardiff Bay and saw the Millennium Center
- We left Cardiff and headed to Chepstow and then got on a bus to Tintern
- Saw the ruins of Tintern Abby in the Wye Valley
- It was raining while we were there but it was completely worth it
- We then left Wales and headed to Oxford, England

Day 9: Oxford, Woodstock, and London
- We met Hannah at our hostel in Oxford, and since we all got along so well, we decided to go sightseeing together
- The 3 of us walked to Christ Church in Oxford but it was closed until the afternoon
- To waste time we decided to go to Woodstock to see Blenheim Palace
- While at Blenheim Palace we saw the 11th Duke of Marlborough (very uncommon), the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, and the gardens of the Palace
- We then headed back to Oxford to see Christ Church and the Great Hall where Harry Potter was filmed
- Unable to get a room in Oxford, we headed back to London for the night
- We finished the night by going to Kings Cross Station to see Platform 9 3/4

Day 10: London, England and Glasgow, Scotland
- We headed out of London and took a very long train ride to Glasgow, Scotland
- The scenery on the way to Scotland was beautiful!
- When we got to Glasgow we walked around the city and saw the Botanical Gardens

Stick around for Part IV: The End Day 11-15 (Inverness and Edinburgh, Scotland; and London, England)
