    Beware of parking rules in Oxford

    As a first time visitor to Oxford I parked my car at the centrally located Worcester Street car park. I had to estimate in advance my expected parking time, print a parking badge and show it behind the windscreen of my car. It was not possible to pay for the actual parking time afterward what is a common practice across Europe. After three hours I arrived at my car 15 minute after the badge expiration time. The two traffic wardens had just issued a parking violation ticket for a preposterous 100 GBP. I see no commensurability between the gravity of the deed and the penalty therefor in European comparison. Most probably it is a new and abundant source of revenue for the Oxford City. Positive: Politeness of the traffic wardens who apologised for the inconvenience and the strange parking rules of the Oxford City Council.

    Expensive bars

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As with any major city prices in pubs and bars in the centre are often far to expensive for what you get.Oxford is no different,try to stay away from wine bars near the major tourist attractions.Instead head to the main universaties and colleges in the east end of the city centre,there are lots of fine pubs to choose from and many are very reasonable and often have student prices.

    I did not run into any of those traps....

    I can not point you to a trap for Oxford do to the fact that I did not take a tour bus or anything like that around the city. I am sure there might be one but I saw non of it. Get into Oxford in the afternoon...if you arrive to late you will be stuck on the street because you can not book into a B&B or a Hotel after certain hours.

    The Bodleian Library is the main research library of the University of Oxford. It is also a copyright deposit library and its collections are used by scholars from around the world. It also contains every book that has ever been published in the United Kingdom.

    The central buildings include Duke Humfrey's Library above the Divinity School, the Old Schools Quadrangle with its Great Gate and Tower, the Radcliffe Camera, Britain’s first circular library, and the Clarendon Building.

    In addition, the Bodleian has seven dependent libraries, in separate locations in Oxford: the Bodleian Japanese Library, the Bodleian Law Library, the Indian Institute Library, the Oriental Institute Library, Rhodes House Library, the Radcliffe Science Library, and the Philosophy Library.
