Oxford — 1 night

A busy, cosmopolitan city, Oxford is perhaps best known for its ancient university.
Start off your visit on the 8th (Fri): explore the historical opulence of Christ Church Cathedral, steep yourself in history at Oxford Castle & Prison, then see the interesting displays at Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology, then deepen your understanding at Balliol College, and finally take in the local highlights with Walking tours. On the 9th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: examine the collection at Pitt Rivers Museum, get a new perspective on nature at Oxford University Museum of Natural History, then contemplate the long history of Blenheim Palace, and finally brush up on your knowledge of spirits at The Oxford Artisan Distillery.

London to Oxford is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. You can also take a train; or take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 27°C in July, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive back home.

Oxfordshire is renowned not only for the world-famous university town located at its very heart, but also for a varied rural landscape that's a growing favorite with walkers, cyclists, and history buffs. Sightseeing in the region reveals archetypal English landscapes studded with fascinating towns and villages, many situated right on the River Thames. Though the county’s main attraction remains the ancient city of Oxford, which includes over 1,500 heritage-listed buildings and a multitude of outstanding museums, there’s much more to Oxfordshire than a long history of academic achievement and an old-world atmosphere little changed by modern trends. A huge population of young students makes this region one of the most dynamic parts of the country--a perfect complement to the rustic charm and ancient architecture.
