"Oxford" freezer61's Profile

Ariel view of Christchurch College.

I live in this beautiful place people call it "the city of the dreaming spires" because of all the college spires, it is a very busy city with lots to do and see, The colleges are open to the public with great transport in and around the city.

Tourist Information


Oxford is a popular tourist destination with several million people visiting our fine city every year. There is a lot to see here, and Oxford City Guide doesn't want you to miss out on any of the beautiful sights.


Aside from the beautiful buildings of Oxford University, there are many other buildings worth visiting while in town. Some are associated with the University, and some are not, but most of them are old and fascinating and are definitely photo-worthy.


Oxford City Guide wants to make sure you see the best of our wonderful city, even if you only have a short time. We recommend using our itineraries as your guide - but be sure to stop and look at anything that strikes your fancy along the way.


We provide a variety of maps to help you navigate the city.


There are several ways to see Oxford - by bus, by foot, by water, by bike, and by car. Oxford City Guide recommends a combination of all five! Nothing beats walking around at your own pace seeing the things you want to see, but it's also nice sometimes to sit back and relax and watch the sights go by while an experienced tour guide tells you what you're looking at. Our own trusty editor got her first glimpse of Oxford from aboard a 'hop-on-hop-off' bus and was thankful to get the lay of the land before heading off with a map and a list of things she wanted to see again.
