A typical scene of Oxford  

Mention Oxford, and most people will immediately associate it with the world famous Oxford University, but Oxford is much more than just a University city.

Having said that, Oxford is dominated by the universities and institutions related to the academic community and the architectural splendor is hard to better

Many visitors to Oxford will take a walk around the colleges and historic buildings in the city. Names such as Christ Church College, Merton College, Magdalen College, New College, the Sheldonian Theatre, the Bodleian Library and the Radcliffe Camera will be familiar to many.

Oxford's two rivers, the Cherwell and the Isis, provide lovely river walks if you fancy getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The Isis is actually the name given to the River Thames as it flows through Oxford).

For shoppers, Oxford offers two shopping centres and areas of pedestrianised shopping. The Westgate Shopping Centre is conveniently located next to a multi-storey car park. In Oxford you will find the likes of Debenhams, Boots, WH Smith, Marks & Spencer and Next along with an excellent covered market.

Oxford train station is just a short walk from Oxford city centre and buses from many nationwide locations terminate at the Gloucester Green bus station.

Oxford Park-and-Ride operates from four locations on the outskirts of the city.

Oxford tourist information can be found on Broad Street and is open Monday to Friday (and Sunday between April and late October)
