  Oxford in England
by coceng

Oxford was a Saxon town at a point where River Cherwell meets The Thames.
The first college was built in the 13th century & one of them was called 'university'.
Today, there are 39 colleges spreading over Oxford.
Around the area as the photo above, I snapped another photo showing some buildings, still NOT in the college areas just yet.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
