Visitor's Guide to Oxford

Visitor's Guide to Oxford Oxford. Just saying the word conjures up images of beautiful golden buildings and the high spires of historical buildings that inspired writers like Matthew Arnold and Colin Dexter (creator of Inspector Morse). It also brings forth visions of cycling undergraduates rushing down winding paths, with mortarboards balanced precariously on their heads.

From the top of Carfax Tower [map], which is the 14th century church tower of St Martin, to the High Street brimming with its interesting and unusual shops, there’s plenty to explore in Oxford.

History buffs will find much to enjoy here with every corner offering a myriad of treasures from the past. Head to the award-winning Oxford Museum [map] to see artefacts from more than 800 years of history.

Art lovers will find plenty of galleries to view including the impressive X-Change Gallery [map] , where visitors can enjoy some of Oxford's best new and contemporary art.

Those in search of fresh air will be pleasantly surprised to discover that Oxford is a very green city offering more than 20 parks and gardens. Why not enjoy the beautiful rurality of Christ Church Meadow [map] down by St Aldgates where cows still graze free, and discover why it has inspired many famous scholars through the ages.

Offering a really dynamic and diverse place to take a break, Oxford will be named the European Centre of Culture in 2008, so why not get there first and don’t just dream about the spires of Oxford, see them for yourself.
