City of Dreaming Spires

A busy, cosmopolitan city, Oxford is perhaps best known for its ancient university.
Step out of Oxford with an excursion to Hook Norton Brewery in Hook Norton--about 46 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: take in the local highlights with Walking tours, step into the grandiose world of Christ Church Cathedral, contemplate the long history of Oxford Castle & Prison, and learn more about the world around you at Oxford University Museum of Natural History.

To see reviews, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Oxford day trip planning site.

Manchester to Oxford is an approximately 3-hour car ride. You can also take a train; or fly. Expect a daytime high around 11°C in December, and nighttime lows around 2°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Thu) early enough to go by car back home.

Oxfordshire travel guide

4.2
Oxfordshire is renowned not only for the world-famous university town located at its very heart, but also for a varied rural landscape that's a growing favorite with walkers, cyclists, and history buffs. Sightseeing in the region reveals archetypal English landscapes studded with fascinating towns and villages, many situated right on the River Thames. Though the county’s main attraction remains the ancient city of Oxford, which includes over 1,500 heritage-listed buildings and a multitude of outstanding museums, there’s much more to Oxfordshire than a long history of academic achievement and an old-world atmosphere little changed by modern trends. A huge population of young students makes this region one of the most dynamic parts of the country--a perfect complement to the rustic charm and ancient architecture.
