Why is Oxford an idyllic location?
The city of Oxford is located 24 miles from Reading and 51 miles from London, and is home to the oldest university in the English speaking world- Oxford University. It is known as the “city of dreaming spires”, a phrase coined by poet Matthew Arnold who was also a cultural critic. Oxford was originally called ‘Oxenaforda’, after being settled in Anglo-Saxon times. It began with the establishment of a river crossing for oxen around AD 900, hence the name. Hitler, during World War II, was intending on using Oxford as his capital if he conquered England, which is one of the reasons why the city was never bombed. Roger Bannister became the first man to run a mile in under 4 minutes, and the run took place in Oxford in 1954, and his time was 3 minutes 59.4 seconds. During the Civil War in 1642 and 1646, Oxford was the capital of the country, and to date Oxford has more published authors per square mile than anywhere else in the world! And of course, the most famous descriptive dictionary of the English language was published in 1879, after many years of searching for a publisher, an agreement with Oxford University Press and the editor, and the Oxford English Dictionary was formed. There are lots of fun facts and historical points to discover about Oxford, and it is clear to see why so many people fall in love with this special city.
Oxford provides some fantastic opportunities for having fun, with amazing attractions in the city itself.
The Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology is Britain’s oldest public museum and is home to a fantastic range of exhibits and displays, and aims to take your on a trip to the past.
The nearby Cotswolds Wildlife Park is fun for all ages and allows you to go “eye to eye with a Giraffe” and is home to 260 different species of animals. There are many walk-through exhibits, aviaries, houses and a railway station, all of which hold some of the most beautiful animals in the world.
The renowned bowling franchise Hollywood Bowl has a branch in the city, meaning you can let loose striking some pins and tucking into American style food.
However, if bowling isn’t your thing, why don’t you give ice-skating a go? Oxford Ice Rink is a 56x26m ice rink that is just a 10-minute walk from the city centre, and is perfect for making of your friends and family falling over, or training to stay active.
You are never short of ideas on what to do when living in Oxford.

The world-famous Oxford University is in the city, and has such notable alumni as Bill Clinton, Stephen Hawking, JRR Tolkien, Rowan Atkinson, Hugh Grant, Sir Walter Raleigh, and many more. It operates the world’s oldest University museum, as well as the oldest academic library system. It is consistently referenced as the world’s best University. There are a collection of sixth forms, Universities, secondary, and primary schools outside of the city, in and around Oxfordshire, proving the choice is vast and would need serious consideration. As a parent, having so much selection of schools is a rare benefit, and proves that Oxford really is the place to be.
By car, the A34 off of the M4 is an easy way into the city, meaning access from Wales, Bristol, Reading and London is very straight forward. The M40 from the north is also a way to get into the city.
