Oxford

The City of Dreaming Spires is famous the world over for its ancient university, a centre of learning for over 800 years. Visit the Bodleian Library (with ‘Europe’s most beautiful room’), explore some of Oxford’s 38 colleges with their elegant gardens and chapels, have a drink in the pub where J.R.R. Tolkein and C.S. Lewis debated or take a civilised punt along the River Cherwell.
