You already have the picture, so I won't wax poetic. The best advice I can give fellow tourists is to do some advance research, list your objectives, get your priorities straight, check times and places and make a plan. There will never be enough time....More

Just like we see on the PBS British shows. Quaint, historic and beautiful. All the spires and the yellow stone make this great for photographs. We enjoyed just walking around the narrow streets.

We walked around the university grounds and some of the architecture really is breathtaking. The grounds are beautiful and I imagine on a summer day stunning. Worth a look when visiting Oxford
