WHILE IN OXFORD ...
Oxford is a beautiful city of stunning
architecture, history, and culture. You'll find ancient and modern
colleges, fascinating museums and galleries, and plenty of parks,
gardens, and green spaces in which to relax. Plus, the city centre is
small enough to cover on foot, and only a few minutes walk from the main
rail and coach stations.
While you are in Oxford please do explore the brilliant variety of Classics-related things the city has to offer.
