It would be well worth getting a tour guide. This is a community of colleges and many things you are not allowed to visit without a tour guide. There is a lot of walking to do to see the whole area and it takes a full day to see. Most things close around 5:00, so get here early and enjoy... More

people say it is a must see place that is why we visited. to be honest it was a disappointed visit for us. nothing was interested for me and family. it was a 20 mins tour inside. main hall was the most popular place. .

When I was in Oxford, I was fascinated with its beauty and charm. It's a small English town with many famous colleges. You can take a free walking tour and explore the town. You will enjoy it a lot as it can't be otherwise.

I was there for few hours (only 3) and I have to admit it was not enough. What I recommend is to do a tour, we did one with A College's student and we learnt a lot, otherwise we wouldn't have really gotten the concept of the city. It would be even better If you can spend a night there!!

It was the last attraction of a day tour by Golden Tours that went Windsor Castle, Stonehenge followed by Oxford as the final stop of the day. If you have more time, would strongly recommend to allow at least half a day to visit Oxford. I was totally blown away by the history and architecture of the buildings. This according... More
