Oxford

What You Need to Know Before You Go

Most come to Oxford to visit the famed university whose colleges date back more than 800 years. When you step inside the honey-coloured Wadham College, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were on the set of a Harry Potter movie.

That said, the city doesn't feel stuffy. Thanks to its young student population, there's a vibrancy where old Oxford traditions like punting sit side by side with a modern music and food scene. This is a town where you can see the Magna Carta at the Weston Library in the morning, hit the upmarket shops in the afternoon and catch a Broadway show at the New Theatre Oxford in the evening.
