Oxford is prestigious for a reason and it does take your breath away. Christchurch is where the Harry Potter filming took place and is always splendid to see. The architecture is pretty special. It is a must see.

You can't help but to feel a little humbled and small when you absorb the history and traditions of this place. A must see. Very lucky students!

Don't expect a campus, as this is a collegiate university, and many of the colleges are open to the public. There are specific sites which people equate to the University, one being the Bodleian Camera (part of the library) and the other being Christchurch college...More

Most of the colleges are worth a visit. But much better to join a tour where you will see the best colleges and learn plenty of history. If you're not joining a tour, New College, Magdalen College and Christ Church are the best I have...More

The university is really a collection of individual colleges often of great historical and architectural merit built chiefly to the east and south east of Carfax, a classic 'compass points' crossroads marking out the centre of the city. The lower-lying land to the west is...More

About 2 hours. It depends on which company is giving the tour and how much of town they include, but they usually don't take all day. (The tour I give people when they visit takes about three, but we're young and like... More
