    Girls: Whistles clothing...

    by bluefelt Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Girls: Whistles clothing store is the most amazing store I have even been into. I couldn't afford anything because the pound to dollar ratio was so horrible, but this store makes me teary-eyed. When Ilana and I got sad and missed home, we would go there and pet the clothing. Top Shop and Ms. Selvridges don't compare, but they're in my price range. OASIS is my other favorite - a huge chain throughout the UK. It's great.

    Oxford University

    It was nice to be in the midst of these old college buildings in Oxford. Just think, many great knowledges that have shaped human minds for centuries originated in this place.

    Medieval Wall

    by Imbi Written Oct 15, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is one of the few still remaining sections of the medieval wall that once surrounded the city of Oxford. This one is near Christ Church.
    It worth a visit as you can see in the picture.

    St Aldate’s is one of the busiest streets in Oxford.
    There are so many interesting places and buildings on this street. You can also catch local buses from here.

    Great Chew

    by Kate-Me Written Sep 15, 2003

    From memory, this delightful little village isn't far from Woodstock in Oxford.
    I can only remember there was a little pub, and a whole row of these adorable, authentic old thatched cottages.

    The walk from Christ Chruch to the river takes you past very scenic parts of Oxford. I go jogging here quite often and the views of Christ Church and th eother colleges are amazing.

    Turl Street

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Home to three of the prettiest colleges in Oxford, and with the sort of shops you won't find on any High Street, Turl Street is a must-see for any visitor to Oxford.

    Oxford in Winter

    by barryg23 Written May 27, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most tourists arrive to Oxford in summer, but to escape the crowds, winter can be a good time to visit. It's definitely worth it on those cold, bright days, when Oxford looks really great.

    I love indoor markets and it's always nice to find one when travelling. Oh well, Oxford has one as well :)
