Oxford, a city in central southern England, revolves around its prestigious university which was established in the 12th century. The architecture of its 38 colleges in the city’s medieval centre led poet Matthew Arnold to nickname it the 'City of Dreaming Spires'. A number of the buildings featured in this thread have figured prominently in numerous films and TV shows produced in the UK.

I spent a very nice day there with my younger son years ago, hmm, actually ten years ago. Very happy memories, life has not been that easy for the lad, since :(

Excellent set of photos! I live about an hour and a half from Oxford by bus, which is free for those of us Brits over 60. I go and visit probably a couple if times a year, just for a wander round, late breakfast in the covered market and late lunch at one of the many pubs and restaurants. Next time I visit I'll have your pictures in mind because you've included some views I haven't seen and maybe there are whole streets and areas I have missed! I must do my homework more thoroughly!
