Oxford is affectionately known as "The City of Dreaming Spires" because of the University buildings that can be seen throughout the town's skyline. Located in the southeastern United Kingdom, Oxford is not far from the capital city of London.
Scenic Oxford is most well-known for its famous university, but there is plenty to see and do aside from visits to the school and car hire is the best way to discover them!
Climb to the top of Carfax Tower for a particularly stunning view of the city spread out around you in all directions. There's also the Ashmolean Museum, which is the oldest public museum in the country. Having your own car hire from Auto Europe will enable you to move about at your own pace.

Oxford City Centre is where most of the school's buildings can be found. There are a number of historic educational structures for you to explore during your stay in Oxford.
While in Oxford, take the time to drive over to Blackwell's Books. The building is the largest bookstore in Europe. The Norrington Room itself is over 3,000 square metres, and entirely devoted to book sales. Lots of tourists and locals visit each year to see this massive bookshop.
