At University of Oxford, tread the same paths as some of history’s greatest thinkers, scholars, and world leaders. Oxford was the first university in the English-speaking world, existing in some form since 1096, and remains at the forefront of learning, teaching, and research. Explore where its students live and study by visiting some of the university’s 38 colleges, each with a distinct identity. The university boasts some of the world’s finest libraries and museums, with exquisite architecture. The Bodleian Library, dating from 1602, has one of the world’s most well-regarded collections. Its artifacts include a Gutenberg Bible, the earliest surviving book written in English, and almost 10,000 western medieval and Renaissance manuscripts. Visit the Ashmolean Museum, established in 1683 (making it one of the oldest museums in the world), and see works by Michelangelo, da Vinci, and Picasso. Rest your brain and stretch your legs in the University Parks’ 28 hectares (70 acres) of beautiful parkland, or climb the tower of University Church of St. Mary the Virgin, which offers panoramic views of the city. Check out some of the podcasts the University makes freely available, which include audio guided tours with different routes to choose from.

  • Particular visit with double interest, both for the University and for the memories in the harry potter series. You visit in a couple of hours and the ticket is 7 €. Nice and quaint Park within the refectory. The Cathedral is very accurate and evocative.

  • It is possible to visit without joining a tour, but I don't recommend it. Well worth paying for.

  • One cannot visit what can arguable be described as they (or at least top 5) most important Universities in the world, and certainly one of the oldest and most significant in the English-speaking world...  read more »
