Oxford is broken up into many smaller colleges. I did not know his. The guide took us through several of them. The age and the architecture was very interesting. My tour felt rushed but it was enjoyable to get a glimpse of the place.
not going to lie I'm pretty surprised about my out come of coming to this university. I came into this university as a proud young man with many a levels and as a proud happy student but came out a meth and heroin addict with...More
Oxford is an eclectic mix of "town and gown", with students studying at one of the greatest universities in the world and ordinary folk working and living in the historic city. high street brands as well as quirky, individual boutiques. Two great shopping areas in...More
A beautiful town full of interesting people. The architectures are impressive. I suggest anyone to join a guided walking tour, so that you can learn the rich history about the school and many many fascinating facts. If I have a chance, I would visit again...More
I couldn't understand why so many young families were disappearing into the Oxford museum of natural history. Of course it's free and that is a great attraction to families but what was inside was rather special and, in my opinion, unique.

What a historical and interesting place. We loved walking around the different colleges and learning about the unique history of the schools and of the people who attended or visited there. Worth a train or bus ride from London to visit.
The University of Oxford is definitely worth visiting. We visited as part of a small tour group and we thought it was very worthwhile. It is so incredible for outsiders like us, to see such wonderful buildings, the various colleges and all that the visit...More

No, the tube does not go there. Too far NW.
From any major above ground train station you can purchase a ticket that takes you into Oxford. The train ride is approximately an hour or perhaps just a few ticks less depending on which station you are departing from. Once you arrive in the Oxford train station, exit and turn off to your right for about a block and then turn left. Several blocks walk over a small bridge and you will emerge in the down town area.
I recommend departing early so you can spend a full day in this charming wonderful little hamlet. There are several city tours, a few include tours of several colleges. A multitude of wonderful places to have a bite and perhaps a pint (or two). If you do tour any of the college grounds make sure you have your camera as they are absolutely beautiful! ****note: It is not uncommon for the colleges to charge a fee per person to tour. Though if you take a city tour, that includes a few of the colleges, that fee is included in the tour cost.
A wonderful resource is the Oxford tourist center, which if you follow my directions from the train station will be approximately halfway through town on the right side of the road (look up the address before you depart) it is a wonderful place to get information and they have maps of the city you can purchase for a very reasonable price.
Enjoy your visit!

You may want to try the Eagle and Child pub, which is few blocks north of the main university area. There is not a place to watch people walk by, but the pub is full of history, as this is the location where the Oxford “writers club” including JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis used to meet weekly to discuss the stories they were working on.
