Oxford’s 'dreaming spires' are famous the world over, conjuring visions of floppy-haired students and earnest professors, of learning and philosophy, boating and picnics on the river. All these things are part of Oxford and yet it is so much more.
The historic University buildings are scattered throughout a city rich in beauty and history. Monuments and museums stand side by side with great shopping and cafes, making a visit to Oxford a pleasure on many fronts. You can have a drink in the pub where Tolkien used to drink, wander the meadows around Christchurch College, where Alice in Wonderland was written and even see some locations used in the Harry Potter films.
