  • Carfax Tower is one of the most important tower in Oxford city. Though the name Carfax is often used to refer to the tower, it is actually the name of the crossroads where the St Martin's Tower (the real name of the Carfax Tower) stands. The Tower is all that remains of the 12th century St. Martin's Church. Carfax Tower is open year-round (with shorter hours in winter) for anyone fits enough to climb the tower, and there is a small charge. The view from the top is quite amazing.
  • Very slim climbing and roof top has lead top sides have wooden planks to walk around small space. View is very good
  • For a panoramic view of the city of oxford you can buy a ticket and climb the tower. Nice to do it with your students or even with your other half. :)
  • Only for the fit and those with a head for heights as you have to climb a winding staircase of about over a hundred steps to get to the top of the tower but the panaramic view is amazing.
  • A must visit point in Oxford. There you can have a plain sight of all the surroundings. Plus have an amazing staircase that's go round and round. A historical place with a small museum. Really good for pictures, selfies and for a refreshing wind. An obrigatory Point to know Oxford better from a privileged point of view.
