Does budget accommodation exist in Oxford?

by TRRK

I'd like to spend a weekend in Oxford in June but can't find any budget accommodation. Are there any cheap (around £50) B & B's, preferably walking distance to the train station? Everywhere I've found is quite expensive and all the hostels seem to only have dorm rooms rather than doubles.

Any ideas or do I need to forget about going to Oxford?

50GBP is pretty much baseline for tourist-popular places in season (and Oxford is tourist-popular).

However, using the search engine on:

http://www.visitoxford.org/stay.asp

(the official tourist info site) produced a b&b in the city at less than 50GBP for a 2-night stay in June (Park House).

The YHA hostel in Oxford costs substantially less, and does offer separate rooms:

You'll have to phone them to check availability/book (or do it through www.hostelworld.com)

It's worth booking as soon as you find somewhere which is available and suits your budget, I think.

Travel Tips for Oxford

Lewis..when will you ever understand the subplot?

by sourbugger

When in Oxford Last time, I got talking to lady at the AMT coffee bar by St Michael's church. She was telling me that she often met the creator of the 'Morse' series, Colin Dexter.

Last time, he was sitting out at a bus stop in his usual set of bedraggled clothes...but he wasn't waiting for a bus. When my now found friend returned some hours later he was still there. Perhaps it is whre he gets all his great characters from.

Either way, get a hold of a DVD or two of the detective series. Each two hour masterpiece usually feature a couple of murders around Oxford. the labyrinthine plot is slowly revealed as morse trundles around Oxford in his trusty Mark II jaguar, down a few too many ales, and admonishes his sergeant for missing something vital.

I never get who 'dunnit', until fartoo late in the day.

It always bothered me somewhat - if there really are that many murders in Oxford, how come Morse and Lewis still kept their jobs ?

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...
Here, we can see High Street; The tower in the distance is Magdalene College Tower; Next to it is The University College.

If you need a phone card, a good one is the CIC - Cheap International Calls card, available at any shop in town. A student one is also cheap. Grocery stores are Tesco, Somerfield, and the Co-Op downtown. Internet can be found at the Internet Exchange or Costa Coffee - 6-12 George Street.

Let's talk about the Local Customs and Traditions here in Oxford, shall we?

Staring right at my face now is this brochure I got from the Oxford Tourist Information Center... and it has listed down the following interesting events:

May Morning (May Day) when choristers sing madrigals from the top of Magdalen College Tower from 6.00AM onwards.

The rounding up of horses and cattle on Port Meadow annually. This is to ensure that only those belonging to freemen of the city are benefiting from grazing rights there which are controlled by the Sheriff of Oxford.

The Sheriff's Races are held on nearby Wolvercote Common annually in July.

During Spring and Summer, catch the Morris Dancers in action around the public houses in the city.

Try and catch at least one of these events!

Nick a Plate from Christ Church Dining Hall!

by boonkoh

When you visit the dining hall in Christ Church, the one where the Harry Potter movie was shot in, you might fancy nicking one of the plates set out on the table. There seems to be only 1 "bouncer" for the whole room, and mostly he just stands there looking at his feet.

Unique and priceless souvenir!! High quality as well, as they are made by Royal Doulton!
