Reasons to Visit

Reasons to Visit

The Architecture – It’d be hard not to mention that the biggest attraction to the “City of Dreaming Spires” is, of course, the buildings! From the impressive Radcliffe Camera (arguably the most iconic building in the city) to Christ Church Cathedral which gives Oxford its city status.

Live Gig Venues – If you’re looking to take in some of the modern cultural aspects of this exciting city, then there’s a wide selection of places to go like The Bullingdon and The Half Moon in the Cowley Road area just outside the city centre that host a variety of events such as jazz nights and comedy clubs.

Modern Art Oxford – A brilliant and wide-open space in the city centre that hosts numerous exhibitions throughout the year, pretty much all of which are free to enter.

The Nightlife – Being a student city, Oxford is a great location for any group event, whether it’s birthday celebrations or a weekend get-together for a big group of mates; there’s a range of different bars, pubs and clubs for every individual depending on taste.

Free Things to Do in Oxford

Free Things to Do in Oxford

If you’re looking to save a bit of cash on your trip and want to see what Oxford has to offer, here’s a few free activities that the city hosts that are definitely worth visiting if you get the time!

Oxford Botanic Garden – Take a picturesque walk through the oldest gardens of its kind in the UK being founded in 1621 and housing close to 6000 different types of plant!

The History of Science Museum – A fantastic free attraction that’s open every day of the week except Monday and houses some of the earliest scientific artefacts from Europe and the Middle East. It even houses a blackboard that still holds hand-drawn calculations by Albert Einstein!

Alice’s Shop – This unsuspecting landmark may just look like another memorabilia shop but is actually where the actual Alice (surname Liddell) visited to buy sweets! This historic landmark has peaked interest in fans of the books and movies for years and is definitely worth a visit if you’re nearby.

There are also a number of bus services that have stops located throughout the city centre and surrounding areas for your convenience.

We had the best time! It was so much fun and everyone got stuck in and enjoyed it, even in the rain! Would definitely do it again and have already recommended it to friends.
