Oxford is well-known as being home to one of the best and most popular universities in the world, the University of Oxford, but the city of Oxford is more than just a university town. It’s a beautiful place, steeped in history, that’s proud of its culture and has an elegant architecture. With a mix of rich heritage and great academic background, there’s so much to do and see in this beautiful city.
You’re probably reading this thinking, “what on earth is punting?!”…Well, punting is an Oxford tradition – it’s a type of boat, and the best way to enjoy Oxford is to cruise the river in a punt. Simply hire the punt and pack a few essentials (such as Champagne) and off you go. This unique tradition has been on the go since the late 1800s.
Oxford is home to Blackwell’s Bookshop, which is the largest academic bookseller in the entire UK. It is also home to the Norrington Room, which has a bookshelf space of over three miles. Oxford is also a place where a lot of popular authors drew inspiration such as J.R.R. Tolkien, Lewis Carroll, Thomas Hardy, and C.S. Lewis.
The buildings of Oxford are architectural wonders. The building designs have a sort of academic feeling combined with traditional architecture. The university buildings are beautifully golden and can make you feel like you’re back in the 1200s.
