Cited as one of the best university, Oxford caters for approximately 24,000 enrolled scholars per year. Its 38 colleges are spead throughout the city and many are fabulous buildings. Bars, restaurants and shops cater for the wide range of academics who attend Oxford, as well as all the support services required to keep the university functioning.
To get a good overview of the city we rode the city sightseeing bus. Most of these photos were taken from the top deck of the bus.
On our tour along the Thames River, which runs past the city, we passed where the Head of the River rowing race is held. It is surprisingly narrow for the eight competing boats to manoeuvre the course.
Oxford is a very exciting and interesting city – we really needed to spend more time here exploring.
Now off to London for a few days – then Italy for a week to visit friends.
