Description

Oxford and its university, the oldest in Great Britain, offer over 800 years of history in an interweaving of astoundingly beautiful buildings, neat quadrangles, cobbled lanes and alleyways, domes, turrets and spires. The University is a federation of almost 40 self-governing colleges, many of which are hundreds of years old, inextricably linked with the daily life of a busy and prosperous city. Great churchmen and statesmen founded the first colleges in the 13th century, although Oxford had been a place of learning for many years before.

When you visit the colleges you’ll discover that each has its own unique customs, tales of famous men and women, distinctive architecture and an atmophere of tranquillity that reflects centuries of learning and tradition.
