Oxford is one of the most popular tourist destinations in England. There is good reason for this popularity, as the city remains relatively small, and the attractions of the University and other historic buildings are clustered within easy walking distance around the medieval core of the city.

For a quick orientation, consider taking an inexpensive walking tour or open-top bus tour (see our Tourism page for details), and stop by the Tourist Information Centre on Broad Street.
