Left luggage in Oxford?

by mackilou

Hi,
I will be spending one day in Oxford on my way to Banbury. Is there somewhere I could leave my luggage whilst sighseeing? The train station does not seem to have a luggage storage facility.
Would be really grateful for any ideas!
Thanks,
Elsa

Travel Tips for Oxford

That old question of rivalry...

by sourbugger

So which is better ? Oxford or Cambridge.

When it comes to academic rating, Cambridge battles it out on the world stage with Harvard, but Oxford struggles to make the top ten. So a clear win there.

But what of other measures ? Oxford can claim to have produced 25 British prime minsters, against 13 from Cambridge. In sport, Oxford has an impressive 74 wins in the 'Boat race' - until you realise that Cambridge can muster 79. Eighty nobel prizes have been awarded to Cambridge men, but only (!) 47 to Oxford.

So, Oxford has the reputation in politics and the arts, but Cambridge wins hands down at Science (or proper subjects)

What really decides it is the list of alumni from the two places : Cambridge has produced Francis Bacon, Charles Darwin, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Lord Byron and Isacc Newton. Meanwhile Oxford (to pick four at random) has given the world Magaret Thatcher, Rupert Murdoch, Hugh Grant and Mr Bean (Rowan Atkinson).

Case Proven.

Winter in Oxford

by barryg23

I love the differing aspects of Oxford as the seasons change. The city looks great on those cold, frosty days in January, and when the sun comes out at the same time, the effects are often spectacular.

The Oxford Light Infantry

by Elodie_Caroline


War memorials are a very important part of our history and heritage, it's what made it a free country, let's hope it stays that way.....

This memorial in New road is dedicated to The Oxfordshire Light infantry men that had to forsake their lives in the first and second world wars to give us all a better life today, although, I wonder what they would think of everything today?

I do hope that no one will ever forget any brave soldiers who gave up their lives in the fisrt and second world wars.

Packing List

by ben_england

Backpack is probably most convenient, but suitcase would be fine. Anything should be fine really! A good range as the weather 'turns on a hat-pin'. Even if its summer I would bring a thin waterproof coat! And similarly if its winter bring some thin trousers and a short-sleeved shirt/t-shirt. You can buy most stuff needed in Oxford as we are fairly civilised here, what what! But just bring your normal everyday stuff to save you having to buy more needlessly. Same as- you should be fine with most camaras etc. Oxford has become fairly good for accommodating tourists. Just don't!!

Wytham Wood

by RufusFrog

This wonderful old broad-leaved wood West of the ring-road is owned by the university & you're not allowed in without a walking permit (which is hard to obtain). However, they regularly ask for volunteers on projects & experiments such as the annual badger census (middle of May) so if you want to do something really different while in Oxford (and you are a wildlife-loving insomniac), this could be it! See http://www.wildcru.org. Wytham is worth visiting anyway for its super pub, the White Hart.
