Half a day in Oxford, please help me plan...

by Des1rees

I will be in UK for a day and a half, and want to go to Oxford for a few hrs. Actually, I will be getting into Heathrow around 10am on a Wednesday morning, and then my brother and I are planning to drive to oxford ( he has a car) for the rest of the day.
Can you all wonderful people give me ideas of places to see within that period. Would like to do tea there, as well a pub lunch. Would like to walk in center of Oxford, check out shops, bookstores and old buildings. I know there will be a lot left to see however I just want to see the essence of Oxford.
Any ideas would be much much appreciated.

Thanks,

Desiree.

Hi there
great choice , oxford is very easy to get to from london! however i would recogemend that you take the oxford tube (bus) its cheap, easy (runs every 10mins) and goes straight into the center of town). Parking is a nightmare! however you could use the Park and Rides (there are 4 in oxford).
There is plently to do in oxford, visit the colleges, look around the shops etc!If you want to hit the book shops then go to BLACKWELLS! They are the true oxford choice, they can be found on Broad Street! If you want to Do Tea, then the Grand Cafe is lovely and on the High Street! the QUOD is also lovely for lunch!
Hope you have a lovely day!

I just went to Oxford yesterday. For the pub lunch I recommend the Turf pub. It's very popular, and really enjoyable. For sightseeing you have to go to Christchurch and Christchurch meadows.

If you're driving you must use the Park & Rides......they are clearly signed and buses are frequent. Parking in the city is just not worth the hassle/ time. Oxford is quite compact and well-signed, and you'll find plenty of places to eat/look at within easy walking of the bus stops. The Tourist Information Office is centrally located, and may be useful for maps etc. The Turf Tavern (mentioned above)is good, but rather tucked away and difficult to find. The Hobgoblin pub (opposite Christchurch college) is very atmospheric (Tolkien used to drink there). My Oxford pages may give you some extra ideas. Enjoy your visit!

Travel Tips for Oxford

St. Mary's Church Top Views...

by coceng

Now, we can see a better view of The All Souls College, just on the right of The Church of St. Mary.
Excellent !
Founded in 1438 as a centre of prayer & learning; 'The Souls' by its name refer to the demised soldiers of Hundred Years' War...

Friends

This photo was taken in the Turf bar, and it was one of the last time the four of us (me, Li, Andreas & Charles) were together as a group. We had some great times! Mostly in the pubs and rarely in the library...

Oxford Affliations with Lewis Caroll

by jo104

Famous for his book Alice in Wonderland he attended Christchurch college in Oxford. He developed a stammer it has been said only in adult company but there is no evidence to support this theory. He caricatured himself as the Dodo in Alices adventures in Wonderland which relates to the fact he had difficulty pronuncing his surname Dodgson. You will find the Dodo statue along with many other amusing faces & animals on the way to St Abingdons.

Packing List

by Aragina

Bring what you can carry, also backpacks are a great thing to carry all your bits and pieces in. As with most of the UK, Summer can be hotor cool, Winter is cold and wet, so dress appropriatly but always carry an Umbrella as the weather is always unpredictable. you can get almost nything you need in Oxford, but the are some medications that you can get over the counter that you cannont get in the USA or CANDA, i.e. Zirtec is one. Please check before you come over as to what meds you can get here and what you need to bring with you.
Doctor and Hospital care will cost the same here as it would privatluy in your own country. You can get whatever you need here althougnh it will cost a little more than in the US or Canada. Remember that the Uk runs on 220 v and you will need to bring an adaptor to plug your electrical items in.Make sure that you equipment has a duel mode switch, as stepo up transformers cost a fortune.

Iffley Meadows

by RufusFrog

This is a very pleasant nature reserve on the River Thames on the opposite bank to the village of Iffley (which has a great Norman/romanesque church btw). It's particularly recommended in April when the Snakes Head Fritillary is in flower, with its strange checkerboard design in shades from white through to purple. It is quite a long walk down the Thames towpath from Folly Bridge; Donnington Bridge is a more sensible starting point, or if you have a car, park in Iffley Village & walk downhill & over the lock. Surprise, surpise, you can also take in a pleasant riverside pub, the Isis Tavern, just north of the lock, & watch the antics of the rowers turning their boats (most fun in October when the total novices are out!). Sorry, but I haven't photo'd a fritillary, so here's a cowslip, another beatiful native spring flower.
