Oxford

City of Dreaming Spires

A busy, cosmopolitan city, Oxford is perhaps best known for its ancient university. Home to a growing high-tech community, the city’s unusual blend of old and new provides both tourists and residents with plenty to do and see. The old town successfully combines the spirit of English tradition and modern academic excellence, while its numerous medieval buildings dominate a thriving community driven by light industry and developing technologies. Oxford’s huge population of students helps it maintain the feel of a vibrant young city despite its ancient architecture. To soak up an old-world atmosphere little changed over the past few centuries, explore the city’s sprawling college grounds. Oxford is in Oxfordshire. Use our United Kingdom trip itinerary planner to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Oxford.
