Your Destination —
Steeped in history and studded with majestic buildings, Oxford conjures images of Harry Potter's Hogwarts and sets off romantic dreaming. One of the world's most famous university cities, this splendid city thrives with vibrant youth and brilliant minds - between the quaint coffee shops where you can see students debating the latest in mind-blowing academia to the rip-roaring pubs where these youngsters blow off some steam.
The elegant honey-coloured buildings of the colleges that make up the university, some dating back 750 years, wrap around tranquil courtyards along narrow cobbled lanes, and inside their grounds, a studious calm reigns.
But along with the rich history, tradition and lively academic life, there is a world beyond the college walls. Jericho, in the northwest, is the trendy, artsy end of town, with swanky bars, restaurants and an art-house cinema. East Oxford is a gritty, ethnically diverse area packed with cheap places to eat and drink. Further out, in the salubrious northern suburb of Summertown, you'll find upmarket restaurants and bars.
