Oxford is full of ancient pubs. One of my favourites is the Turf Tavern, reached by an small alleyway near New College. (A great piece of graffiti on the lavatory wall there was "You don't buy beer, you rent it!") Bon voyage!

Thank you for the address. I would rent a beer in this pub.

hey
i live near oxford,
the turf is excellent as are many other (too many to name but you will soon find them, the eagle and child is where jr tokin (lord of the rings) and lewis caorl (alice in wonderland) used to meet for drinks, night club wise things are not very good, difinatly do NOT go to park end, try the bridge, the cellar and the zodiac are worth a go, also po nah nahs,
while your in oxford go punting on the river (make sure the weather is nice and take some wine/beer/food.
also go the natural history meusem and the pitt rivers museum (in the same building) look for the shrunken heads,
If you are bored of oxford then hop on the an x4 or x3 bus to abingdon and visit some of the pubs there. try the nags head by the river, or kings head and bell which is very very old. you can walk to abingdon along the thames from oxford which is great when the sun is out!
anyway im sure you will discover many other things while your there
have fun

Travel Tips for Oxford

St. Mary's Church Top Views...

by coceng

Then, I managed to capture a view of The Radcliffe Camera.
It is a spectacular looking circular library built in 1748 in the Palladian style.
it is also part of the university library; NOT OPENED TO THE PUBLIC !
'Camera' is in Italian, in English it means 'room'.

VT meeting

by barryg23

I had a great day showing Sabine (VT member Sabsi) around Oxford. Luckily the weather was quite nice, so we only needed to spend half the day in the pub. We also saw the angelic Magdalen choir singers, some punters on the river, and quite a few of the colleges.

Magdalen Hall

by nickandchris

This is a magnificently atmospheric dining room with wonderful wood panelling walls and long polished tables. Quite dark and sombre but reaking of tradition and fine dining. (Actually Michael says the meals are not brilliant but they are wholesome and good value, particularly the dinner and it saves on cooking yourself!!! What more could a student want?) Meals are served for students every day, except only dinner on Sundays.
The Hall was built in 1474 and the wonderful linen-fold panelling was added during the early part of the next century. Believe it or not, it was bought in London, transported up the Thames to Henley and then brought overland to Oxford. Must have been some journey! Figures of Mary Magdalen and John the Baptist , amongst others, can be depicted.
It was all very "proper English" and exactly how you would imagine a Hall would be at Oxford. Magnificent. I don't think I would like to be present when it's full of hungry, extremely drunken students (which happens regularly, according to Michael!)
Every so often the students regale themselves in full evening dress for a slap-up nosh and grand booze up. Ouch!!!!!!

Protected Landmarks

by barryg23

One of my favourite places in Oxford is Christ Church meadow, but I'm lucky that I got to see it at all. Back in the '50's, the council planned to build a by-pass through here, to ease Oxford's traffic congestion. God knows what Chrst Church's dons thought of this, but luckily enough people protested, and one of the nicest parts of Oxford was saved from 'development'!

Gargoyles

by nickandchris

Whilst walking around the fantastic buildings of Magdalen College you can't help but notice the amazingly detailed figures and especially gargoyles on the walls of various buildings. They really intrigued us and some of them were quite grotesque. Almost as if we'd stepped into a horror film!!
