  • My husband could not believe I was taking him to see a shark. We found it very easily and loved it. Took a picture and sent it to friends!  more »
  • Somewhat of a let down once it is seen in person. Heard stories and saw pictures, just not that impressive.  more »
  • Worth seeing just for the strangeness; probably wouldn't go and see it again. Easy to find, though the one-way streets can elongate a visit.  more »

  • Quality, best thing about Oxford is this shark! And it's pretty big and you can take good pictures of it aswel. Love it.
  • It's a shark .... in the roof. Brilliant .... if you like sharks in roofs
  • Wow. This has to be one of the most awe-inspiring achievements humanity has ever accomplished, it honestly makes me proud to know what we can do as a species. The shark is a monument to human perseverance, creativity, and a reminder of what it means to feel alive. If we ever make contact with another intelligent life form in this vast universe, I know exactly what we should be showing them first. 🦈
  • Great to see it just once, who would have done that in the first place?
  • Great location for a short visit. That is a piece of art actually.
