We walked around the university grounds and some of the architecture really is breathtaking. The grounds are beautiful and I imagine on a summer day stunning. Worth a look when visiting Oxford

Walking around Oxford is walking through history. Each college has a unique story. Try to visit as many as possible during open hours.

This is an Impressive university. Scattered all over the city. It was good to see the extent of all the colleges. To be honest, I would find it hard to concentrate and to study here. Buildings are cold; courses are compressed; distractions are immense.
