You will come across modern and ancient collages, galleries and fascinating museums. There are plenty of parks too and gardens with much greenery to sit and relax. If you are on... More

I went to oxford a couple of weeks ago and it was beautiful! Young people everywhere, full of life and enthusiasm, I think it's one of the best places in the world to study and, as I said, being there makes you want to study! I strongly recommend everyone should go and stay for a couple of days at least,... More

The Old Bank Hotel offers a free walking tour with guide of some of the Oxford sites including All Souls, Baliol, Bodelian etc. Well worth doing and takes about two hours and not too strenuous. Very interesting.

To visit place like Oxford is like a Pilgrimage which had Famed World Personalities As A Student. One must be aware before stepping out from his mode of transport that he/she going to have a Once in a Lifetime Memorable Tour about to start. Before planning to visit here your research about What Oxford is ? Who are its Past... More

Oxford University has been an English, British, and global institution for centuries. The fact that the place was full of visitors in the middle of the winter attests to this fact. Even if you didn't know anything about the university, just viewing the architecture alone is worth the visit. If you have time, take a guided tour so you can... More

The university was very interesting and the building were magnificent. Its better seeing the University on a guided tour which we did and we managed to gain entry to some of the colleges you wouldn't able to without having a tour guide. We only went for a one day tour but would like to go again and see more.

Oxford is a university city. Whether you are a student, academic of a passionate viewer of the Tv series of Morse and Lewis, wandering through the buildings and colleges of Oxford are a wonderful experience. Be prepared to spend a few days taking in the sights, including the Market and some of the pubs.

Atmosphere was fantastic. Lots of young people with smart faces have walked down the streets. I had a feeling like they are on the way of some invention. The place for those who look for inspiration. I enjoyed it. So now looking forward to meeting Cambridge
