Things to do in Oxford

Approximately 7 million tourists from across the UK and the world visit Oxford to admire a city world-renowned for its rich history and culture. But don't be fooled; Oxford is a city where the old meets new, mixing history and classic architecture with a vibrant, youthful atmosphere. Oxford has a wide range of restaurants, bars, and shops to suit all tastes.

The rich history of Oxford means it's a haven for culture-seeking folk of all types. Whether you're looking for art, comedy or museums, this city has it all. You'll be spoilt for choice if you're going to Oxford for the theatre and comedy nights, from the New Theatre and Oxford Playhouse to Oxford Revue and The Glee Club. With so much on offer, it'll be tough to decide where to go. We also recommend the Pitt Rivers Museum for a quirky array of interesting artefacts.

If you're an avid foodie, love trying new cuisines or looking for some comfort food, Oxford has something for everyone, catering for all dietary requirements and budgets. For great food, we suggest you take a stroll down Cowley Road, where a euphoria of delicious sights and smells will tingle your senses. With cuisines ranging from Spanish Tapas and authentic Thai to high street classics, you won't be short of options. Or, if you'd like to try some local produce like punchy cheeses, freshly baked breads or great beers, head over to the Covered Market.

The Covered Market is not only great for local produce, but it’s also home to local designs and boutique stores. What's excellent about Oxford is everything is within walking or bus distance. So, once you're done here, why not explore the Cornmarket, the Clarendon Centre and Westgate, where you'll find all your high street favourites? Oxford is also the perfect place for antiques and vintage treasures, and there’s no better place to find them than Antiques on High. If you're looking for a book for your train journey home, make your way to the historic Blackwells for some written magic.
