Is there a more beautiful city in these isles than Oxford? Well, I cannot claim to have been to all of the them but of those cities that I have visited Oxford is my favourite by far. Many years ago I lived in Oxford and have very fond memories of it. Of course, when you live in a place you ... Read review

Beautiful University City

AdvantagesBeautiful, Historic, Charming

DisadvantagesBusy at times, Lots of tourists

"...cities that I have visited Oxford is my favourite by far. Many years ago I lived in Oxford and have very fond memories of it. Of course, when you live in a place you tend to take it a bit for granted and you do not tend to visit it's tourist attractions. However, recently I decided to take my wife and 2 sons (aged 9 and 4) to Oxford for a few days to show them the city that I had loved so much and also to remind myself and look at it from the ..."

AdvantagesAttractive, cultured city

DisadvantagesExpensive, students ;)

"My perspective on Oxford is not quite the same as on Colchester. I havenít lived there all my life, but I have been studying in Oxford for the last two years. That only amounts to about a year in the city, but means Iíve tried quite a few of the attractions and know a fair bit about the University, one of the main tourist attractions, and the one Iíll begin with, after dealing with: Location/Transport Oxfordís in the midlands, in the county ..."

A New Life In Oxford

Advantageshistory, good mix of old/new, good housing,shops,relaxed atmosphere

Disadvantagesroads,transport, expense, tourists & students

"Oxford...think of Oxford and it cunjures up all the usual stereotypical images - upper class uni students drinking Pimms or punting on the river; streets full of cyclists and Inspector Morse bimbling about looking for clues. However, one should never read a book by its rather dog-earred cover, as they say. Oxford is quite a charming place, which doesn't uphold all of its cliched values although it is true to say students & bikes do dominate ..." Read review

My day trip to Oxford!

AdvantagesA beautiful city, full of history and architecture

DisadvantagesSo much to do and so little time!

"...15 mins to get into Oxford and we dismounted the bus outside St Mary Magdalene's church and admired the Martyrs Memorial, and my dad pointed out the hotel across the road, The Randolph featured in Inspector Morse and famous for its teas. But we didn't go in for a tea, and continued on our journey. We walked up and down a few streets admiring several beautiful buildings; however we really didn't have a clue what they were. By this time we were starving ..." Read review

A Students View

AdvantagesGood Socially

DisadvantagesTourists

"...various aspects of oxford. Socially oxford is an increadabily an light hearted place, during term time, (Autumn,winter and Spring) the streets are bustling with students ranging in age (18 to 30). People seem to be alot more happy, conversations with total strangers are not uncommon all with one underlying thing in common the fact that, they/we are all there studying there. During the day time Oxford is a regular shopping centre with quite a ..." Read review
