“Wealth of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

Enjoyable to visit the inner sanctums. Over 30 years since I spent sometime on management courses so it was interesting to see that in some respects nothing has changed.

Not sure about all the college admission charges

“This is a must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

The traditions go back and have hardly changed. Nice that it has remained untouched. Morse and Harry Potter were filmed here to name just a few. Nice friendly helpful staff

“Oxford U. Is an Architect's dream!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

My husband, an architect, was very anxious to see Oxford. I had been years before but the beautiful buildings, the historic significance and the entire mileure of this University is worth seeing repeatedly. The campus is exquisite and has been used in "The Harry Potter" movies and other venues. Each building is a school within the larger University. The students live and study in this magical historical setting. The town is quaint and lovely with marvelous shops, bakeries and restaurants. It was in Oxford's CoOp that I finally found a Harry Potter poster, which one of my granddaughters had wanted. Finding out that some of the movie scenes were shot there, lead to my securing this much wanted treasure. We went in a bakery type eatery and sampled delicious scones and pastries. One of the things that I loved the most about England was the amazing scones that we ate every day there. We went to Cottswald and Stratford On Avon, but Oxford was THE BEST!
