Turn left onto St Giles, then follow Keble Road until you reach Parks Road, around half a mile in total. Dominating the vista is Oxford University Museum of Natural History
. This Grade-I listed building, in great contrast to the Ashmolean, is a triumph of Victorian Gothic style with a dramatic glass roof. The museum
, built between 1855-1860, is one of the first examples of a nonreligious Gothic building. Inside, the elegantly carved columns and ornamental details pay tribute to all manner of nature, including plants, birds and animals.
