About the neighbourhood
There are a myriad delights in Oxford, 'The City of Dreaming Spires' which is internationally famous for its University, and its unique place in the history of scholarship. You can visit its beautiful, ancient Colleges and enjoy all that it has to offer in the way of music, theatre, galleries, museums, book shops – and of course many good restaurants of all kinds.
