What a historical and interesting place. We loved walking around the different colleges and learning about the unique history of the schools and of the people who attended or visited there. Worth a train or bus ride from London to visit.
The University of Oxford is definitely worth visiting. We visited as part of a small tour group and we thought it was very worthwhile. It is so incredible for outsiders like us, to see such wonderful buildings, the various colleges and all that the visit...More
We walked with a local guide by the name of Jamie, who is well known in Oxford. His deep knowledge and descriptions of the various colleges and architecture were fascinating. I recommend walking with a guide for the best experience. From Brasenose to Trinity and...More
Oxford university is made up of 38 different colleges. I toured several of the colleges during my last holiday in England, and was so impressed with the grounds as well as the beauty and history of the buildings themselves. Visiting Oxford is only a 50...More
We thoroughly enjoyed our four-day Oxford visit and specifically, having the ability to walk throughout its narrow streets and byways.

You may want to try the Eagle and Child pub, which is few blocks north of the main university area. There is not a place to watch people walk by, but the pub is full of history, as this is the location where the Oxford “writers club” including JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis used to meet weekly to discuss the stories they were working on.

The best way to see oxford and the different colleges is to head first to the visitor center in town (On high street I think ) they offer all sorts of tours , from Morse tours to Alice in Wonderland , all reasonably priced but require lots walking .
The best college to tour in my opinion is Christ Church but there are lots of areas you can't enter unless you're in a program there . The famous Harry Potter dining hall is usually no admittance but I think on sat between meals in afternoon u can see in there .
The reason is simple , people are eating meals there so no tourists etc
