Oxford

oxford-sheldonian-theatreVoted top UK city for culture by the Conde Naste Reader's Travel Awards 2007, Oxford has art, music and culture in abundance.

The world-famous University museums: the Ashmolean Museum, Museum of the History of Science, Bate Collection of Musical Instruments, Oxford University Museum of Natural History and Pitt Rivers Museum (said to have inspired the shops in Diagon Alley) are home to unrivalled collections.

The Ashmolean Museum is the oldest public museum in the world, established in 1683. Christ Church Picture Gallery, displaying the Old Master paintings, drawings and prints is itself in an award-winning modern builing ­ hidden beneath Christ Church’s prestigious quadrangle.

Oxford also offers a host of entertainment from theatre to college concerts. Oxford’s three choir schools at New College Magdalen College and Christ Church Cathedral continue the British choral tradition to international standards. Be sure to catch Evensong in one of these colleges ­ open to the public and a unique experience.

Official guided walking tours make a great introduction to Oxford with an entertaining and informative tour of the hidden lanes and colleges of the historic city centre. In addition to the popular introductory University and City Tour, a range of themed tours are available including; American Roots in Oxford, Pottering in Harry’s Footsteps, Jewish Heritage, John and Charles Wesley, Oxford Literary TourCS Lewis and JRR Tolkien, William Morris and Victorian Oxford.

A wide range of boat companies offer you the opportunity to enjoy a day on the river, admiring the ‘dreaming spires’ from a different perspective, while beautiful and virtually traffic free tours through the Cotswolds also connect Oxford with the other heritage cities of Stratford and Bath.

As a centre for visiting more "must see" places, Oxford is hard to beat. London, Stratford-upon-Avon, Salisbury, Stonehenge and Bath are all comfortably within reach. Memorable historic houses right on the doorstep include the monumental Blenheim Palace - birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill - and idyllic Broughton Castle, familiar from many scenes in the film "Shakespeare in Love. Other major attractions nearby include the Didcot Railway Centre, with working engines celebrating the golden age of the Great Western Railway.
