Oxford is known across the globe for being the home of Oxford University. The University of Oxford Colleges has existed for over nine centuries and is the oldest university in the English-speaking world.
There are many colleges and places to visit at Oxford University including Christ Church College, New College, Magdalen College and St Hildaâ€™s, St Edmunds Hall crypt, Brasenose gardens, Mertonâ€™s library, St Johnâ€™s rockery and Queenâ€™s medieval cottages.
In the afternoons, most of the colleges are open to visitors and they are either free or available to look round at a small charge. Why not hire a limo for the day and travel there in style?!
One of the most renowned colleges at Oxford University is Christ Church. Its Great Tudor Hall was said to have been the inspiration for the Hogwarts Hall in Harry Potter.
Kings, Nobel Prize winners, British Prime Ministers and many famous writers have all studied in The Bodleian Library. With more than nine million books and printed documents, it is the UKâ€™s largest university library.
To avoid appropriation in WWII by the Ministry of Food, itâ€™s believed to have been said that the Deer at Magdalenâ€™s College were reclassified as vegetables!
The professors and dons at Oxford University eat at the High Table. They are long dining hall tables that are raised 6 inches above the students. It must feel like sitting at the Top Table of a wedding every day!
The Radcliffe camera (camera meaning â€œroomâ€ in Latin) is at The Divinity School and is well worth a visit. The neo-classical style building was designed by James Gibbs and built in 1737-1749.
