The city of Oxford revolves around its university, which is one of the oldest and most prestigious in the world. First established in the 12th century, Oxford University is scattered around the centre of city in 38 colleges, each of which possess their own unique history. The university is, of course, a major draw for tourists and scholars alike, but there is plenty more to discover in The City of Dreaming Spires.
Oxford is a bustling cosmopolitan city with one foot in the past and one firmly in the future, with its roots in the UK’s technology and business communities thanks to the science and business parks located within the city limits. The region is also home to the rolling hills of the Cotswolds and the Cotswold Wildlife Park for those that wish to commune with nature, and there are almost as many museums and landmarks in the city as there are in London, only Oxford is a far less hectic place to spend an afternoon.
Besides offering plenty of options for family days out such as boating trips down the city’s famous waterways or walking tours around Oxford Castle and Oxford University, Oxford also provides ample opportunities for evenings out. It’s musical heritage (Pink Floyd and Radiohead once called it home) is undeniable, and there are plenty of music venues where you can catch the latest groups or your old favourites. There are also many traditional pubs and restaurants to discover, which have provided inspiration for countless cultural greats (CS Lewis, JRR Tolkien, Philip Pullman and many more) over the city’s long history. Oxford is truly a city with old bones and a young soul.

Oxford is a historical city located just north of London, which attracts a great deal of tourism due to its world-famous university, gorgeous river, cultural relevance and unique atmosphere. As a tourism hub, it is also home to a number of top coach operators, which we are ready to put you in touch with, should you be planning a group trip to or from the city in the near future.
Hiring a coach for group travel is almost always the best option with the least hassle involved. Trains are unreliable at best, they generally don’t cater to large groups, and they offer little in the way of discounts. An organised coach trip is much more flexible, and they will pick you up and drop off wherever you like. The plans are based entirely around your travel needs. A coach is also the most comfortable and relaxed way to travel long-distance, particularly with a larger group. Most modern coaches will include features such as reclining seats, Wi-Fi and bathroom facilities, and as the coach is exclusive to your group, you can enjoy the atmosphere without having to worry about other passengers.
