"The Old City Of Oxford..." Oxford Things to Do Tip by coceng

Oxford Things to Do: 425 reviews and 792 photos

  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.
This next photo was taken also along Broad Street;
The Indian Institute...
The architectures are amazing but we wouldn't know them by their ages ! Some buildings are only old by the sites that they are built upon whereas the buildings themselves have been renovated many times...
