Oxford Holidays Overview


A mere mention of Oxford will invariably lead you to think about its university that is known to be one of the most revered universities in the world. In fact, the entire city is dominated by the university itself. It forms a maze of buildings located in the heart of the city and is known to boast of some of the finest architectural landmarks in England.

Despite the fact that the central areas of the city are physically and mentally dominated by the university, it still manages to boast of a wider character thanks to an economy which was built upon the car plants located in Cowley. In fact, the first mass produced vehicles of Britain were manufactured here in the early 1920s.

Oxford is famous as a place for the conservative and bookish ones as well as for the elite and the privileged. It has considered to be the most famous university town in the world and the scent of intellectual ideas can be found as soon as you reach Oxford. There are 39 colleges which combine to make up the Oxford University with each college known to attract a fair share of students and tourists into town.

However, the universities, their beautiful architecture, steeped history and splendid personas and the motor car factories only offer one part of the city’s story. Another part of Oxford’s story is written by its exclusive stores, trendy bars, exotic nightclubs, chic restaurants, world famous libraries and world class museums.

Oxford holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Sudeley Castle

www.sudeleycastle.co.uk
What is it? Set against the beautiful backdrop of Cotswold Hills, Sudeley Castle is steeped in history. With royal connections spanning a thousand years, it has played an important role in the turbulent and changing times of England's past. The Castle was once home to Queen Katherine Parr (1512-48), following her marriage to Sir Thomas Seymour, and Lady Jane Grey. Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn and Queen Elizabeth I all visited Sudeley. King Charles I stayed here and his nephew, Prince Rupert, established his headquarters at the Castle during the Civil War. Following its destruction by Cromwell's troops, Sudeley lay neglected and derelict for 200 years. However, its romantic situation and ruins attracted many visitors, including King George III. In 1837 Sudeley was bought by John and William Dent, successful businessmen from Worcestershire, who began an ambitious restoration programme; the castle is still home to their descendants. Within the Castle's apartments are a range of historic possessions dating from the Civil War and an important art collection including paintings by Van Dyck, Rubens, Turner, Reynolds, Claude and Jan Steen. The romantic 14-acre grounds are worth a visit from March to September and are the setting for outdoor Shakespeare performances, concerts, and other events in summer. Hours of Operation: Castle open daily 10.30am to 5pm (31 March to 28 October) Phone:(0)1242 602 308
