Oxford loses none of its charm once the summer tourists have departed. Instead, you’re left with more room to explore its many attractions. Why not take a walking tour and give yourself the perfect excuse to take a well-deserved rest in one of the city’s many pubs, cafés or restaurants afterwards?
Oxford’s historic landmarks are known around the world. The world-famous University of Oxford boasts magnificent architecture, making the city a popular destination for visitors from around the globe.
There are plenty of great places to eat in Oxford, suiting almost all tastes and budgets. For an experience with historical links, head to The Grand Café on the site of England’s first coffee house established in 1651. For fine dining, try the Old Parsonage Hotel, with its links to the famous writer Oscar Wilde.
Oxford may be known around the world for its university boat race team, but the city has far more to offer in terms of sporting activities. Oxford United is the biggest local football team, but if you’d rather be active yourself, why not hire a bike or a rowing boat and see the city in a different way?
