Cross the road towards Martyrs Memorial
As you walk, look across the street, to your right. See the impressive-looking hotel? That's the Randolph, and I advise you to go for afternoon tea there at some point in your Oxford career. It's pricey, but worth doing once!
We’re turning right at the traffic lights. See the stone monument that looks like a church spire, straight ahead? That’s called the Martyrs’ Memorial. and I want you to head towards it. So once you've crossed the road, turn left, cross the road again and head towards the Martyrs' Memorial. Stop when you reach it.
I've heard students sometimes tell tourists it's the top of an underground church and charge them an entry fee to go down some nearby steps. But if you find the steps, don't go down! They only lead to public toilets, I'm afraid. No underground churches around here.
Now, remember. Once you've crossed the road, turn left, cross the road again and head towards the Martyrs Memorial. Stop when you get there.
