Oxford, timeless and modern, is famous the world over for its university and history. For 800 years it has been home to scholars and royalty, and the ghosts of its famous characters and inhabitants are all around.

Nowadays, as you’ll see, Oxford is a thriving, cosmopolitan town. The University is still very much at the heart of Oxford but it’s also a busy commercial centre and an ever-popular destination for visitors. Whether you’re visiting for business or pleasure you’ll never be short of things to see and do here.

Outside the city, you’re on the doorstep of the best of rural England. Oxfordshire is steeped in history and heritage with beautiful rolling countryside, historic market towns, great attractions and historic villages all waiting to be explored.
