City Sightseeing Oxford - Hop on Hop off

Total from

Home to the oldest University in Britain, Oxford is an architectural marvel. You'll get fantastic views of its honey coloured buildings as well as tantalising glimpses of the hushed courtyards of its many colleges!

Gaze at the beautiful buildings comprising Worcester College, St. Peter’s College, Brasenose College, Oriel College St. HIldas College and many more. Visit the International award winning Oxford Castle Heritage area and you'll travel by the Ashmolean, the Sheldonian and the historic Carfax junction.

Let City Sightseeing teach you more about the city and take you to Pitt Rivers Museum, William Morris’ Original Workshop and the Bodleian Library. Gaze at Hertford Bridge, which is often referred to as The Bridge of Sighs because of its supposed similarity to the bridge of the same name in Venice. However, Hertford Bridge bears a closer resemblance to the Rialto Bridge in the same city. Those looking for souvenirs and bargains may wish to hop off at Gloucester Green Bus Station for city centre shopping and the market or at the Covered Market or Westgate Shopping Centre. Perhaps you wish to amble along the River Thames Walk, relax by Oxford Canal or visit the Botanic Gardens. Punting activities can be found at Magdelan Bridge.

There are plenty of places to dine and relax, including The Eagle and Child Pub which was the the old meeting place for The Inklings - an informal literary discussion group associated with the University of Oxford. Oxford offers numerous bars where you can wind down and clubs in which you can dance the night away. Night owls can enjoy live music or see a performance at The New Theatre, The Sheldonian Theatre or The Play House Theatre.
