Getting There

Journey to Oxford

Oxford is centrally located in the south of England, and is around an hour from Heathrow airport and slightly further from Birmingham. By train, travel from London takes just under an hour, and the motorway network is just a few miles from the city center. Getting around the city center is easy on foot, or take inspiration from the students and hire a bicycle - the city has an extensive network of cycle paths. There is an efficient local bus network too, so hop on a bus from a stop close to your Oxford vacation home and you will be in the city center in no time.

Attractions

Oxford and its sights

You can't visit Oxford without taking in the University and the river, and as the city is relatively small, you can easily explore at your own pace. Many of the individual colleges which make up the University are open to the public at certain times of the year, and advertise opening hours on their websites. Magdalen and Christ Church colleges are two of the most interesting and beautiful, and Christ Church's location on the edge of large meadows leading down to the Thames is truly stunning. If you are pressed for time, there are hop on/hop off buses running regular routes around the city with commentary in many different languages which will show you the highlights of the city and give you time to explore the more interesting locations at your leisure before heading back to relax in your Oxford vacation home.

Art & Culture

Art and culture in Oxford

Oxford's Ashmolean museum has a collection of artefacts from all over the world and has everything from Egyptian mummies to the best in modern art. The Pitt Rivers museum and the Natural History Museum are also worth visiting, especially for dinosaur fans. The Bodleian Library, one of the oldest in Europe and the second largest in England is open to the public for individual visits or guided tours, and the Oxford Modern Art museum on Pembroke Street offers an ever changing selection of exhibitions from artists around the world.

Family Activities

Activities with children in Oxford

Kids love the frequent open-top bus tours around the city, and there is also a growing number of walking tours which are more interactive and will be suitable for all but the very youngest children. 'Harry Potter' fans will enjoy tours of Christ Church college, as the great hall of Hogwarts was modelled on this building. Take older children down to the river, hire a punt for an hour and see the city's spires from the water before heading back to your Oxford vacation home for an evening in. The Story Museum on Pembroke Street is dedicated to all forms of storytelling, and there are regular visits from visiting authors as well as workshops and events during the school vacation periods.

Local Attractions

Excursion destinations from Oxford

Just to the west of Oxford lies the beautiful Cotswolds countryside, so leave your Oxford vacation rental behind to explore the villages of Burford, Stow-on-the-Wold or Bibury. All have quirky antiques shops for browsing and cafés where you can experience the quintessentially English afternoon tea. Families will love the Cotswold Wildlife Park, or a trip to Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, where you can explore the grounds and house where Winston Churchill was born. And remember, London, with all that the nation's capital has to offer in terms of shopping, museums, art and nightlife, is only an hour away on the train from your Oxford vacation rental. You can also make use of the Oxford Tube, a cost-effective coach service which runs 24/7 between London and Oxford.

Local Events

Regular events in Oxford

St Giles' Fair takes place early in September and features traditional British fairground attractions such as dodgems and candy floss. This is a busy, fun-filled event which attracts locals, students and tourists alike. A more modern addition to the calendar is the Cowley Road Carnival in early July which is noisy and fun, with lots of dancing and street food from around the world. With the usual floats and dancers, the event is fun for all of the family. The fun goes on into the evening - something to bear in mind when deciding which Oxford vacation rental suits your needs the best.
