Honey coloured stone houses and beautiful countryside await you in Oxfordshire, a beautiful county where heritage meets a stunning natural landscape.
The city of Oxford is awash with things to do, from visiting the prestigious colleges of the University of Oxford to wandering around the many museums and sites of interest such as Oxford Castle, the Ashmolean Museum of art and archaeology and the Bodleian library. If shopping is the order of the day, head for the Westgate Shopping Centre, Cornmarket, Queen Street, Covered Market or simply wander through the side streets and discover independent boutiques and eateries.
Besides its enchanting city, Oxfordshire has a fabulous array of fascinating towns and villages. Burford is one such gem; the ‘Gateway to the Cotswolds’, it is bursting with a charming jumble of chocolate-box cottages and Tudor and Georgian houses. Abingdon-on-Thames has a pretty riverside location and plenty of scenic locations to stroll, and Faringdon, Woodstock, Chipping Norton, Banbury and Witney all hold their own special allure. Henley-on-Thames comes alive every year for its famous Royal Regatta, and Bicester, a lovely town in its own right, is well known for its luxury brand retail outlet, Bicester Village.
Oxfordshire also boasts some exceptional family-friendly attractions, including Crocodiles of the World, the Cotswold Wildlife Park, Blenheim Palace, Didcot Railway Centre and so many more.
The beautiful countryside of Oxfordshire is also yours to explore, with walks along the meandering River Thames, trails through gardens such as the Harcourt Arboretum or peaceful hikes across rolling hills and wooded valleys.
