Just an hour out of London and Bristol, Oxford holds the secret to a vibrant city full of sights to see and things to do. Whether you’re travelling solo or with friends and family, the city truly has something for everyone!
Keble College is opening its historical doors this August and September, giving you a truly authentic Oxford experience in one of the city’s most historical campuses.
Oxford on Foot
How do you pack in all the sights in just a few days?
A personal walking tour of Oxford will give you a private guide who can give you a personalised and tailor-made tour based on your interests.
Head to Oxford Official Walking Tours, which is an award-winning service that is highly commended by visitors to Oxford.
You can choose from a selection of tour themes, including Literary Greats Tour, Oxford Film Location Tour and Oxford Past & Present without the fear of missing anything out!
The walking tour gives you the best introduction to the city and introduces you to many of the buildings and sights you’ll no doubt want to explore further on their own.
If you want to visit the museums of Oxford there is no better place to stay that Keble. Pitt Rivers and The Museum of Natural History are right on its doorstep, with Ashmolean just across the road!
The unique collection and displays of Pitt Rivers make this an essential destination during your stay in Oxford, and nestled in behind it is the Museum of Natural History home to the world-famous Oxford Dodo, the only soft tissue remains of the extinct dodo.
Oxford Museum of Natural History
A short walk from Keble is the world famous Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology, the oldest museum in the United Kingdom displaying an unrivalled collection of art and antiquities in 39 galleries.
Oxford Garden Life
Hidden in the heart of the city are the University Parks, that offer an escape from the city, you’ll find walks and a selection of trees and plants to admire.
The Oxford Botanic Gardens is the UKs oldest Botanic Garden, celebrating its 400th birthday in 2021. Originally created as a Physics Garden, you’ll find a herbarium room, glasshouses and walled garden – a lovely afternoon full of nature.
Oxford River Life
The tours don’t just cover the city, but the River too! Perhaps known for regattas, the River Isis is the place to relax and embrace tranquility during the summer months. Enjoy a picnic or watch punters in the river, or enjoy a drink or meal in the riverside pubs, such as the The Head of the River.
