City/town information

Wonderful architecture, the dreaming spires, lots to explore, some good shops, the covered market is a great place too. Enjoy the history, a tour of the colleges can be had too. Some of them have really beautiful gardens and grounds. Or in the summer book a boat trip down the river Thames to Abingdon and back, or book a punting experience along the River Cherwell and stop off at a pub for refreshments.
