Visit Oxford All Year Round with Beds Away

When people look for locations and destinations to travel to, they often become so caught up in local attractions and things to do, that they forget to simply stop and smell the roses (or take in the sights).

The fact is, Oxford is a hub of culture and architecture, from the hallowed halls of Oxford University, to the traditional riverside where visitors can enjoy a few hours out on a punting vessel.

Visiting Oxford in Spring

Of course, punting isn’t the only water-based spectacle which features in Oxford, with the Oxford vs. Cambridge boat race an annual Springtime tradition which draws huge audiences and celebrates a very authentic British day out. The old rivalry between the two Universities is put to the test with various visitors over the years taking part and drawing in audiences from around the world – for example Royal participants and all manner of high society spectators.

Another great thing about Oxford in Spring is the splendour of the surroundings themselves, and the way that the city comes to life through architecture, well-manicured green spaces, and the riverside. Perfect for simply walking around and taking it all in.

Visiting Oxford in Summer

Having said all that, we couldn’t uncover a list of things to do in Oxford, without talking a little about the tradition of punting. After all, can you think of a better way to spend an afternoon than gliding down the river, surrounded by the culture and beauty of the city and the waters edge, with a glass of fizz in one hand and maybe a few strawberries? Yum!

One of the most popular things about punting in Oxford is the choice provided to visitors, who can either hire a punting vessel complete with an expert punter or can take the challenge on themselves and give it a go. Ideal for a hot day where you might just expect (or hope) to fall in…

Visiting Oxford in Autumn

Check out The Ultimate Picture Palace; one of the UK’s best cinematic experiences set inside a Grade II listed art deco auditorium. Complete with a small bar and finely made cocktails, this is the perfect date night idea for a chilly evening, or a way to entertain the whole family. Alternatively, take an autumn stroll through the city when the summer  guests and visitors have all headed home for another year.

Visiting Oxford in Winter

Visiting any city in Winter is synonymous with Christmas and various festivities, and Oxford is no different. Some of our favourite Winter traditions in and around Oxford include wandering the streets taking in all the lights and festive windows, heading to Christ Church College in the University grounds for a tour of the spaces used in the Harry Potter movies, and checking out the cocktails in Prince Philip’s favourite bar – Raoul’s bar.
