Probably the most scenic university in the world. Please plan more than a weekend to enjoy the beauty of this place.

Although I have studied at very nice university myself, I was truly amazed by the buildings of the Oxford University. They really breathe a great heritage. The square of the library is great. It has a nice façade and all the different entrances to the different sciences shows that great minds on different subjects have wandered about.

Beautiful, historic, one of a kind! We liked the pubs, the beautiful colleges, the old streets and buildings, the friendliness of the people.

One of the best times Ive ever had! If on a trip to London, it's only a bit over an hour of beautiful countryside driving to get there. Simply, walk around the campus. Everything dated to the 13th century. The grand architecture is everything anyone could ask for - old, majestic and beautiful. Just walk the cobbled streets, see the... More

Watch the city centre parking fees! Highest I have ever seen and you have to type in your number plate. If you are slightly late, there is a £100 fine. We were so worried watching the clock, that it did affect our enjoyment a little. Will not be revisiting Oxford any time soon!

I have lived in Oxford for 28 years and have never done the sightseeing thing. I guess you always take it for granted when it is on your doorstop. Well finally I decided to walk around this historic City and see what the fuss is about. The University is huge, spread out all over the place with several colleges that... More

great school with a great history and lots to look at. You have to pay to visit some of the older, more prestigious colleges but in general you can see the best bits for free.

Walk around Oxford, amazing architecture. The university buildings are not open to the public. There are the normal tourists gift shops, including a Harry Potter shops. There is a variety of places to grab a sandwich while walking around.
