Oxford The Essential
Highly recommended
Situated on the banks of the River Thames, Oxford is one of the world's best known seats of learning. Alongside rival Cambridge, it represents the best of English education. Strolling through its streets, lanes, courtyards and gardens takes visitors into a world populated for most of the year by black-gowned undergraduates. Beyond this iconic image, the city and its surrounding countryside make for a pleasant backdrop for a few days' stay.
