  Oxford High Street
by bpwillet

Located in a strategic river intersection, Oxford has become synonymous with academic excellence. The university was broken up into separate colleges and created their own traditions. Oxford was split during the civil war between the Royalists and the Parlimentarians. The architecture of the colleges is stunning and they are scattered throughout the city. It will take a while to view them all but you can see them all on a bus tour if you are pressed for time.

Directions: The M40 gives quick access from London but it also has a quick train service from Paddington Station.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
