Located in the heart of England and just an hour by train from London, Oxford has an international reputation thanks to the famous University of Oxford, which is said to be the “oldest university of the English-speaking world”. The city’s population is very diversified, particularly because of the student population, said to be 22,000 for Oxford University alone.
There are plenty of things to do such as: visiting the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology or the Natural History Museum, one of the numerous colleges including Magdalen and Worcester, the Oxford Castle, going to the Pitt Rivers museum, or admiring the historic buildings on an organised walking tour.
Oxford lends sweetness to labour and dignity to leisure.
