So much history and iconic buildings that inspire academics and creativity. The oldest English speaking University in the world dating back nearly 1,000 years.

Going to Oxford and don ´t visitng the university? That can ´t be possible! If you don ´t get inside tour which is very interesting, walking around is also interesting.

A very interesting and historical place to visit. We did not go to any of the colleges, I think they were closed due to the holidays but there was also the time factor. Many of the buildings such as the Sheldonian Theatre, Radcliffe Camera, the Bodleian Library and the surrounding colleges are all interesting and attractive buildings. There are many more nearby but the rain cut short any planned walking trips. There is a covered market near the A420 and Cornmarket Street with several small cafes. Not a bad spot when it is wet outside.

Aside from the entrance fee and the expensive souvenirs (it is Oxford, after all), U of Oxford is a great place to visit. You will be astounded by the buildings that have withstood time, and you get to learn a bit about the history of the University too! Make sure you take lots of pictures; they are good for memorabilia!

Overall, a must-see. I can truly say it isn't a place I regret visiting.

We loved every minute of our visit to the university and could only take in a small amount of the history available.
