Compact with a supreme position at the junction of the charming Cherwell and majestic Thames; a centre of excellence for hundreds of years; a beacon of hope in a dumbed down World

This wonderful institution which is so full of history needs a whole day and more to visit. We took a wonderful walk to the river where we could then see the towers of some of the buildings from a short distance. I was then taken around by an alumni of the University and visited some of the famous quads, lecture... More

Our guide, Angus, met us at the train station and escorted us to Oxford. We were given our return train ticket on departure, so our return back to London was at our leisure. Angus provided us with great historic information about Great Britain on our way to Oxford and was a very responsive, energetic, and humorous guide during our tour.... More
