Travelling Porridge at Hogwarts!


Travelling Porridge Oxford

Now Christmas is over I’m back on my travels. However when I packed my bag at the beginning of this week I did not expect to be arriving at Hogwarts!

This week I have been in Oxford, the city of ‘dreaming spires’. Attending two conferences in the city I was billeted at Christ Church College. Colloquially known as β€œthe House,” the college is world-famous for its Cathedral Choir and Picture Gallery containing an important collection of Old Master paintings. Before arriving I knew the colleges grand reputation and prestigious alumni roll call but I did not know that it was also a backdrop for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts.

Eating my Porridge whilst being loomed over by Henry the VIII is a little intimidating first thing in the morning! πŸ˜€ However eating breakfast at high table, next to roaring open fires was rather nice on a chilly winters morning.

Porridge at Christ Church is good, the kind that sticks to your ribs and keeps you going until afternoon tea (with scones, jam & cream). Just one little complaint, why wasn’t it served in this; πŸ˜‰
