GO Places in Oxford

Places to Go in Oxford Spend your break in Oxford visiting some its most interesting and popular sights.

A visit to Oxford wouldn’t be complete without a tour of the awe-inspiring spires. Christ Church College [map] is probably the most famous and can be found at St Aldates. The spire here is certainly the grandest and should be instantly recognisable.

Visitors to Christ Church can enjoy a tour of the grand college chapel which contains the reconstructed shrine of St Frideswide, the patron saint of Oxford, as well as a rich variety of stained glass works by Abraham Linge and Edward Burns-Jones.

Behind the college is Christ Church Meadow [map], which offers stunning views of the rivers Cherwell and Isis as well as part of the city walls. This is a good place for a leisurely stroll and you’ll often see cows grazing on the meadow.

Oxford is famous for having the oldest public museum in Britain, the Ashmolean Museum [map]. It houses many wonderful collections from archaeological artefacts to Heberden coins. Why not take a guided tour to ensure that you get the best from this extensive museum.

Savour a small taste of Italy in this very English city and pay a visit to the Bridge of Sighs [map]. This building was erected in 1913 and is an imposing architectural feature of the city.

Another fascinating place to visit is the War Memorial Garden [map]. Laid out in 1925 to commemorate those Oxford citizens who lost their lives in World War I, this is a peaceful place to contemplate and reflect.

To get the perfect tourist snap of your stay in Oxford head to South Park [map], St Clements, which is a beautiful park located close to Headington. Climb the hill and enjoy the perfect photographic moment as you look out across the iconic spires.
