Top sites to see across Oxford city centre

This city is probably best known for being home to the UK’s oldest university, however, this city is home to so much more with history and culture to see all around you. 

Whether you are in Oxford for a day, weekend or even a week this list should give you lots to do while you are there and if you are anything like me still feel like there is still so much more to explore of this classic city.

Museums

This city is all about learning so its no surprise that there are several museums found across Oxford with something for everyone’s taste you are bound to find one for you.  

Botanic Gardens

Want to explore more of the green spaces in the city then a trip to the Botanic gardens is one to add to your list while navigating your way around the city.

Radcliff Square

Trip to Oxford would be complete without a short walk through Radcliff square and getting a pic of the iconic Radcliff Camera (basically a library for the university)

St. Mary’s Church

Fancy getting more of a bird’s eye view of the city then heading up the tower of St.Mary’s Church is a must and located right next to the Radcliff square visiting both these sites at the same time couldn’t be easier.

Covered Market

This classic historic market has it all from a bite to eat to a spot of shopping, if you want to experience less of the tourist areas then just walking through here will get you to experience from local farmer stalls to small cafes with students having a coffee between lectures will give you a sense to day to day life is like.

University Parks

Another area of green space in the city is the university park with art pieces, bridges along various waterways and ponds a walk around the park is one thing that you defiantly want to do.

Bridge of Sighs

One of the quicker stops you will possibly want to make while in Oxford is walking past the Bridge of Sighs which is also right by Radcliff Square so if you are heading there would recommend walking past the bridge ticking this site of the Oxford bucket list.

Hopefully, this has helped you plan your time in Oxford and some of the sites to visit or inspired you to plan a trip there yourself.

    1. Sounds like a great plan museums is always one of the first things I do in any place I travel too.

      The bridge does actually have another official name unfortunately I can’t remember what what is, but the bridge of sighs name comes from the original in Venice which it apparently looks like.
