C.S. Lewis is famous for his connections with Oxford. He studied and held academic positions at Oxford University and is buried in the city.

Magdalen College played a very important role in the life of C.S. Lewis, where he lived whilst working on his most famed books, the Chronicles of Narnia.

Lewis served during both world wars in South East England, in Andover during World War I and Oxford during World War II.

Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkein were firm friends, and big chapters of their lives were played out in the colleges of Oxford where they taught. Theyliked to meet for a drink in the Eagle and Child pub in Oxford, where they pioneered a club, the Inklings, reading aloud from current works during their regular meetings. 

The pub is still there so why not call in and take a look at memorabilia displayed in the Rabbit Room, which they regularly frequented, and raise a glass to them both?

C.S. Lewis died on November 22nd 1963 in Oxford and is buried at the Holy Trinity Church in Headington on the outskirts of the city.
