OXFORD THE CITY
There are few places in the world where one word encompasses a place, a university, a language and an embodiment of excellence in the way ‘Oxford’ does. For over 800 years the University of Oxford has evolved from a series of halls for monastic teaching orders to be one of the top 3 universities in all the popular rankings. Unlike most other universities, there is no central campus, and the buildings of the university and the independent colleges rub shoulders with shops, accommodation and restaurants throughout the town.
