Hotels in Oxford

A city famous for its prestigious university, Oxford has produced some of the finest minds in the world within its 38 colleges. Book one of our Oxford hotels and find yourself surrounded by this great city's splendid architecture, history and culture.

University of Oxford

Oxford is rivalled only by Cambridge as the preeminent seat of learning in the country and certainly stands as one of the best in the world. Monarchs, Prime Ministers, writers, actors, directors, composers and many other public figures have passed through the hallowed halls of Oxford University – and you can too. Visit Christ Church, Magdalen and Wadham, among many others, and walk in the footsteps of Oxford alumni such as Edward VII, Oscar Wilde and Thomas Beecham.


Oxford has many great museums. The anthropological and archaeological collections of Pitt Rivers includes totem poles and shrunken heads. The Bodleian is one of Europe's oldest libraries and second only in size in this country to the British Library. The Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology – where you'll see Powhatan's Mantle and the Alfred Jewel. And then there's the University Museum of Natural History with its dinosaurs, Roman skeletons and much more.

Green spaces

The rolling countryside of Oxfordshire is rich with pretty villages, stately homes and criss-crossing trails. And Oxford itself has its own green havens such Christ Church Meadow, Oxford University Parks and Port Meadow – perfect for a picnic.


There are four cinemas in Oxford showing a wide selection of movies from the art-house to action blockbusters. There are a host of theatres too, from the Sheldonian Theatre with its programme of classical music concerts to the Oxford Playhouse which describes itself as "a theatre for everyone".

Eating and drinking

Earning rave reviews for its food, service and value for money, Oli's Thai is one of the very best restaurants in Oxford. A choice of freshly baked focaccia, ciabatta, wraps and multi-cereal baguettes with a choice of delicious fillings is what Jimbob's is all about. And after a bit of evening entertainment, Hassan's Van serves a mean falafel salad wrap and kebab.


England's oldest covered market is on the High Street, containing anything from a butcher's shop, and a chocolatier, to a hat store and a glassware merchant. You'll discover many fascinating bookstores dedicated to second-hand, antique and new books. The University of Oxford has its own shop, selling gifts and souvenirs.


Less than nine miles from the centre of Oxford, The Cherry Tree Inn in Abingdon is a delightful stay that's easy on the pocket. A 25-minute walk from the city centre, Green Gables Guest House provides affordable 3-star accommodation. Fancy a night in a prison? Don't worry, Malmaison Oxford makes a virtue of this former Victorian gaol and delivers 4-star comfort into the bargain.
