Sightseeing in Oxford

North of London lies the city of Oxford. This city in England is famous for its university and its colleges which are all built in historical styles giving you the feeling that you are transported back into time. Many of these colleges come with famous names such as Christchurch college, Trinity college, Exeter college and All Souls college.

Oxford is very nice to walk around and and this is a good way to see landmarks such as the Bodleian library, the Radcliffe Camera, the Sheldonian Theater, Blackwell's books and the University Church of St. Mary the virgin. Many of the old buildings have been kept in their original state which adds greatly to the unique atmosphere that surround this university town. Oxford has several museums such as the Ashmolean museum, the Oxford university museum of natural history and the museum of the history of science. Most places are within walking distance and because of the relatively low traffic density and the many students cycling is a popular way of getting around.

Similar to Cambridge you can also go punting in Oxford. Punting involves pushing your boat forwards with a long pole. Especially in the summer on a sunny day this is a popular thing to do. With so many students around, there are many bars and clubs to keep you entertained in the evening. Oxford is located only 80 km (50 miles) from London, so it can be easily visited as a day trip. On the other hand, there is some active nightlife because of all the students which makes it worthwhile to spent a night here.
