Oxford is a city, and the county town of Oxfordshire, in South East England. The city has a population of just under 165,000, with 151,000 living within the district boundary. The rivers Cherwell and Thames
run through Oxford and meet south of the city centre. For a distance of
some 10 miles (16 km) along the river, in the vicinity of Oxford, the
Thames is known as The Isis.
Buildings in Oxford demonstrate an example of every British architectural period since the arrival of the Saxons, including the iconic, mid-18th century Radcliffe Camera. Oxford is known as the "city of dreaming spires", a term coined by poet Matthew Arnold in reference to the harmonious architecture of Oxford's university buildings. The University of Oxford is the oldest university in the English-speaking world.[1]

Can't park - forced onto "park and ride", horrible fumes from buses in the streets and the same old shops as everywhere else. Shan't be going back.

Parking in the city is difficult, so used park & ride. Visited Merton College and its library, then walked around the gardens - splendid.
