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.
