Or for that matter, elsewhere in the UK? I'm planning to trip to Britain (plus a little of France) in May, and I will probably stop by Oxford. I know there's the Eagle and Child pub and his grave - anywhere else of note?

Well, there is the house where he wrote The Hobbit, FotR & TTT, and of course the University colleges he was associated with...

If you can get to Birmingham, then there is a Tolkien Trail:

Have a great trip!

Beware. They took the fireplace out of the Eagle and Child! Boo! Nonetheless, during my two-year stay in Oxford, I visited there often...Especially on trivia night.

It may also make sense to take a trip to the Bodleian Library, where there are some original Tolkien manuscripts (and some artwork, I believe).
