I visited this centre at least four times during our weeklong stay in Oxford. A young lady named Estelle assisted my nearly every time I stepped in. She was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. She also did a great job in finding out what my interests and priorities were before suggesting tours. When I decided to cruise the Thames, she even suggested that the less expensive alternative was a better match for my schedule and interests than a more expensive option. Here's another budget conscious tip - the maps on prominent display in the little shop area are rather expensive. If you ask, they keep a completely adequate basic map behind the counter that only costs 50 pence. If you plan on visiting Oxford this help desk is a good starting point. It's conveniently located right in the middle of all the action.

This was well worth a visit for first timers like us to the city. An informative map was only 50p and the assistant was very helpful with advice.

Not much to say about the visitor center. Good exchange rates for dollars, nice and friendly staff, surprisingly cheap souvenir shop.
