Oxford and Cambridge one-night side-trips

by frodriguez

I'm planning a one-night stay in both oxford and cambridge as side-trips for a London visit. Is a one-night stay enough to gain a decent appreciation of each town? Or would I be better off canceling one side-trip and extending my stay at the other town?

Hi, welcome to VT.

You say 'one night', so I guess that means you have nearly two days in each. There's a lot to see even though both are small towns, but if you want to spend time walking around getting the feel of the places and seeing the main sights then you could do that in the time you have. They are different from each other and it would be a shame to miss either of them.

I agree.

Both are within feasible travelling distance of London and, with an early start one day and a late afternoon/evening return the next you will have time to explore the main sites.

www.nationalrail.co.uk will give you train times and fares.

www.nationalexpress.com and www.megabus.com will give you coach times and fares. For Oxford there is also www.oxfordtube.com (a bus, not an underground!). Buses are cheaper than trains but slower.

Train will be the best option for Cambridge, I think, because it is further away. Bus is fine for Oxford, as it is quite a short journey.

If you are travelling after 1st May, do try to visit the Pitt-Rivers Museum in Oxford: it is entirely amazing! http://www.prm.ox.ac.uk/visit.html

Thanks for the museum tip, leics... I'd never heard of it, but it sounds very interesting. We're due for another Oxford day this spring.

The museum seems closed until 1 May when it reopens after some renovations.

Re: Oxford and Cambridge one-night side-trips

by leics

Yes, it is.

But if you are there after it's open, it is wonderful..everything from prehistoric axes to shrunken heads, costumes from around the world to musical instruments ditto, from boats to toys to fossils to witchcraft remanants to weapons to armour to fans to jewellery.........displays crammed together, drawers and drawers and drawers of stuff to explore.

Just one collection from the Victorian General, and a glorious, glorious experience! :-)

Travel Tips for Oxford

The collages. This is...

by Aragina

The collages. This is Magdelane College (pronouced Maudlin)

The University is one of the oldest in Europe with some evidence of organised teaching going back to 872. Differences between town and gown caused the University to close in 1209 only to be re-opened in 1214 after local traders felt the pinch. Since then it hasn't looked back and is now ranked as one of the great learning centres of Europe.
Unlike many University sites, Oxford does not have a campus as such but is a collection of colleges and other buildings spread throughout the city. Walking around the colleges, is an exprience in seeing England at it's oldest. Discovering the history of all the college's is my favorite pastime.If you have time there are 35 college's to explore.

The Views From St. Mary's Church...

by coceng

There are 127 steps to go up the tower of St. Mary's Church.
From the top, we can see excellent views over the city of Oxford !
These are my photos, my own views from my camera, through my eyes to the top; on the tower & descending down...
On this photo, we can see part of The Brasenose College & also The Exeter College Chapel.

Walking Back To The Train Station...

by coceng

Walking along High Street, I came to the entrance of another well-known Oxford college - Queen's College.
It's dated from 1340.
It was named after Queen Philippa, wife of Edward III.
The students residing in this college are still being treated like the 'good ole days'; Like they are summoned to meals by trumpet calls !
As a tourist, you must join an official tour to go inside this college...

While there are 31 colleges...

by Michael_D

While there are 31 colleges within Oxford University, only 25 remain open to the public and the hours change at various intervals during the year. There is a tourist office near CARFAX TOWER (which offers the best view of the city) that will have a list of visitation times as well as a tour pamphlet that makes a cost-effective souvenir. Rest assured for those whose budgets allow, there is no shortage of great tour/picture books onsale in the city-centre.

Authentic English countryside-in walking distance!

by conle006

Port Meadow lies just to the NW of the city centre. Find it by walking North up Walton Street, through the Jericho neighborhood, and turning West on Walton Well Road, following it to its end. While it can be wet & muddy during the rainier seasons, it is still a wonderful stroll...often right in amongst horses and cows!

A mere 15 minutes walk from the city, it is a great 'escape' that is not frequented by tourists.
