We toured U of Oxford with a guided tour. Besides the bad breath and dingy clothes from our docent, it was an informative and entertaining visit. We got lots of history and views of the campus but limited touring of the buildings and more of...More

We only visited Oxford for a short while, having attended a family wedding, so we didn't have a lot of time for sightseeing.

Walking the grounds of any of the colleges is about the same as the other, but it's lovely to see such a tradition of many years standing. In a way, it's like Poet's Corner in that so many great writers went to Oxford.

If there was any place I wanted to visit in the UK, this was it. The historicity of the place is incomparable. So many authors came to mind, so many Christian mentors were birthed here so it was really an emotional journal. Buses take you...More

You need pay a fee but if you're part of a payed tour then you're off the hook. You don't get to really see the inside. Just parts of it. The main ones I'd say. The gardens, the Chapel, the big hall.

You may want to try the Eagle and Child pub, which is few blocks north of the main university area. There is not a place to watch people walk by, but the pub is full of history, as this is the location where the Oxford... More
