We just had about two hours to wander around but we really appreciated the little that we were able to see. I would have liked to have more time to take a guided tour to learn more about this renowned institution, but even if you do not have much time it is worth a quick stop. The architecture is really...

This is a wonderful stop to walk the streets and see all the historic sites we have heard about . You do need a guide to make sure you know what you are looking at.

Watching the Inspector Morse and Inspector Lewis series on TV made me yearn to go back to see this famous institution again, since the last time in 1983. Wish I had planned to stay a few days here, instead of a few hours, so that I could at least get inside one of the chapels. On certain days, one could... More

Oxford is a complex of buildings and houses. Harry Potter it was filmed here! Walking the streets is a great experience.

The City is the University - very impressive! Go into at least some Colleges and University buildings and feel the atmosphere of intelligence over the years.

we were so lucky to stay in Keble College and the dining room is just amazing (very Harry Potter). The whole of Oxford is an experience you shouldn't miss and preferably stay there in the university holidays so you get to stay in a college. the buildings are just beautiful and you feel like you have stepped back in time.

With due apologies to Harvard and Cambridge, Oxford may be history's greatest university. My second visit outdid the first as i saw more things I totally overlooked the first as the initial impact sunk in. The architecture inside and out is stunning, especially its grand cathedral disguised as its student dining room. For those who even want more, take a... More

I have been fortunate to travel to Oxford for a couple of weeks during the Summer for the past six years and each time I find more to see. I love the castle styled buildings, the cathedrals, cobble stoned roads, and beautiful quads. It is a phenomenal place of history and learning with some of the best minds in the... More

The whole Oxford is the University since it consists of different colleges and halls. Charming buildings. Love to go around and explore. It has some modern parts and yet no skyscrapers. I love it. Hope my son or one future grandchildren would study in one of the colleges so I could visit more often.
