Oxford is a unique town, with a beautiful riverside setting, and well known all
over the world for its universities. The radiate from the Carfax Tower,
and most of the academic buildings are within an easy walking distance.

have difficulty choosing which to visit. The Ashmolean is the oldest museum
in England, and as such is well wroth a visit.
One of the best ways to explore Oxford is to take a guided walking tour, where you'll
learn about the historic city centre, and the famous university buildings. A trip to
St Mary's Church Tower will give you a great view over the famous colleges.
Oxford has often been used to film and TV locations, and has plenty of literary links too.

chance to take a punt ride. Or have an amble around the rural walkways in Christ Church Meadows.
Enjoy some time in one of the many bars, restaurants and cafes, or visit the Apollo Theatre or Georgian

something for you.
