Oxford

Travelers searching for an excellent range of historical and scenic sights will love Oxford.

This area of Oxfordshire has roughly 150,000 residents.

It is situated 6 miles south of Kidlington and about 50 miles west of the national capital of London.

The University Botanic Gardens plays a large role in conserving the region's botanical specimens. Be sure to swing by and support their important work.

Be sure to visit Christ Church Meadows when you need to relax. Alternatively, have a bite to eat and flip through a magazine at South Park.

Nature lovers will surely want to check out Port Meadow.

The Bate Collection offers an interesting couple of hours for discerning travelers. Explore the collections at your own pace, view the exhibits and be sure to ask someone about any special events or happenings.

See impressive artifacts and learn about scientific advances at the Museum of the History of Science.

Those interested in the formation of the natural world will enjoy spending a morning discovering the specimens at the Pitts Rivers Museum.

Like to have a greater knowledge of art and culture? Plan a day at the Modern Art Oxford and surround yourself with beauty.

Travel back in time and take in the enlightening displays at the Ashmolean Museum and the Museum of Oxford.

Wander back through the ages with a visit to the Exeter College and the Trinity College, just a couple of the historic buildings and sites here. When it comes to bygone times, there's always more to discover. The University of Oxford and the New College are two more great places to check out.

Crossing the local waterways, Bridge of Sighs and Magdalen Bridge are two feats of civil engineering that have withstood the test of time.

Peer into the lives of some of the area's elite when you visit the sprawling grounds of Blenheim Palace.

You can imagine you're a maiden from the Middle Ages as you gaze in awe at the formidable walls of Oxford Castle Unlocked.

Learn a little about the region's spiritual side and take in the serene atmosphere at University Church of St Mary the Virgin and Christ Church College. If you'd be interested to look at a couple more religious sites, check for tours at Christ Church Cathedral and The University Church of St. Mary the Virgin.

With such a range of educational institutions in the area, it makes sense that students are coming here in droves. Want to tour some of the campuses? The Oxford University Museum of Natural History and the Said Business School are worth checking out if you're going to be in the area. The Hertford College and the Green Templeton College are also worth a look.

Covered Market is the perfect destination to head to if you have a passion for shopping or you're after a bite to eat.

Ladies and gentlemen, prepare to be entertained! Travelers of all ages will enjoy catching a show at the Sheldonian Theatre or the Oxford Playhouse. O2 Academy and the New Theatre Oxford are also terrific spots for local and touring performers.
