Oxford, The City of Dreaming Spires, is famous the world over for its University and place in history. For over 800 years, it has been a home to royalty and scholars, and since the 9th century an established town, although people are known to have lived in the area for thousands of years.
Its famous Colleges, ancient walkways and blissful rivers have provided inspiration to generations of poets, writers and philosophers. While the University of Oxford remains a world-recognised powerhouse in several fields of study and research. Its reputation for excellence and scholarly distinction attracts the top young minds of each generation and churns out world leaders with an almost unnerving regularity.
With its mix of ancient and modern, there is plenty for both the tourist and resident to do in Oxford. Whether its visiting one of the many historic buildings, colleges or museums, going for a drink or a meal, taking in a show or shopping till you drop, Oxford has it all.
