Get to know Oxford with Viator

Shaped by the world-leading, 1,100-year-old university at its heart, Oxford—known as the "City of Dreaming Spires"—is defined by its charm, erudition, and centuries-old landmarks. Popular university-related sights include the Bodleian Library, the Ashmolean Museum, and colleges like Magdalen and Christ Church (which Harry Potter fans will recognize as film locations). Oxford is also a convenient base for visiting Blenheim Palace and the outlet shops of Bicester Village.
