Things to do in Oxford
Walk around the university buildings
Of course Oxford is most famous for its university and when you arrive in Oxford, you’ll see why. The buildings are stunning. Walking around the centre of Oxford you will pass the majority of main university buildings, as the colleges are spread across the city.
Shop and eat
Oxford’s centre is full of high street shops and restaurants.
Including the most beautiful Pret.
Westgate shopping centre is the perfect shopping hub and even has a rooftop terrace with several different restaurants.
Visit the Modern Art Gallery
Oxford’s Modern Art Gallery is free. And tiny. Don’t expect much. It’s got a small shop and cute cafe, but despite its size, the gallery is worth visiting for a exhibit called ‘Speakers’ by Swedish artist Nicolas Party.
Yes. Those are huge heads. Trust me, the exhibit is definitely worth a visit.
Head inside the indoor market
Oxford’s covered market is definitely worth a visit. Inside you’ll find small boutique shops, cafes and… a butcher… be warned, it’s not for the faint hearted!
Overall, Oxford is perfect for a day trip. It’s got beautiful buildings, high street shops, great restaurants, a modern art gallery and…
A great Wetherspoons.
