Oxford is set around 60 miles northwest of London. The University is made up of a central university; 38 colleges; and six Permanent Private Halls.

On a guided Oxford tour see the birthplace of Alice in Wonderland! Even though neither of the movies was here, its many surroundings, such as Christ Church College where Alice Liddell lived, did inspire Lewis Carroll in 1862 to write this enchanting story that we all love.
Along with Christ Church, the New College and Bodleian Libraries were featured in the Harry Potter movies. Oxford Street is home to many huge department stores and retail outlets, containing over 300 brands.

The market was opened in 1774 and is very lively with a thriving community of stallholders covering a wide range of subjects.
