The home of Oxford University!
Oxford is famous all over the world for being the home of one of the oldest and most respected universities in the world.
The city is situated at the joining of two rivers: the Cherwell and the Thames. As such, the city offers lots of opportunities for boating, punting, and pleasant riverside walks.
Oxford is a compact city, with most of the colleges and university buildings within easy walking distance of each other.
The amazing architecture of the 40+ colleges makes Oxford a beautiful place to explore, and there is also a vibrant culture apart from the university.
There are plenty of museums, cinemas, theatres and shops.
However, should you want more, London is a short train or coach ride away.
