Oxford informazioni visitatori

Oxford is a beautiful yet vibrant city on the Thames. Its famous university has given the city much of its exceptional architecture and its rich cultural heritage: over 900 buildings are listed as having historic or architectural merit, all located within a square mile. A view along the High Street has been described as one of the most celebrated views in Europe.

Oxford has had a role in educating four British, and at least eight foreign kings, 47 Nobel prize-winners, three Fields medallists, 25 British Prime Ministers, 28 foreign presidents and prime ministers, seven saints, 86 archbishops, 18 cardinals, and one pope. Seven of the last eleven British Prime Ministers have been Oxford graduates. Amongst the University's old members are many widely influential scientists, artists and other prominent figures.

It should be understood that colleges are designed primarily for students: not for children or adults expecting a high level of luxury. However, with this in mind, the colleges do meet a level of comfort that we expect most visitors to be happy with, and we will welcome any feedback where this is not the case.

La storia di Oxford

Oxford: the City

The city's roots trace back to 700 when a priory was formed "where oxen were wont to ford the Thames" (thus "Ox-ford"). In 1214 the University received a charter from the Pope. Influxes of Dominican friars in 1221, and then Franciscans in 1224, contributed Oxford's strong Catholic traditions. Oxford as an important centre of religious activity continues today: all colleges have a chapel (Christ Church's is a Norman cathedral), and several colleges continue to function as religious foundations.

Oxford: the University

In the early years of the second millennium, any Englishman in search of learning would study at the University of Paris, the foremost academic institution of the time. However, in 1167, all English academics in Paris were moved to Oxford. Whether this was because Henry II recalled them or they were expelled by the French isn't clear. But Henry, who had built Beaumont Palace (of which no trace remains) as a residence near where Worcester college now stands, and who had given the city a charter in 1155, clearly established Oxford as England's principle academic centre.

Today there are 39 colleges of varying age, size and character. Every student at the university is a member of a college, which provides students with accommodation, meals, tutoring, libraries, common rooms, and sports and social facilities.

I had a lovely room with beautiful windows, desk, chair and a good bed. I can imagine it gets a bit cold in winter as all the windows are single glazed Breakfast in the dining hall was also a great experience and the location is very central

(Revisione di Christ Church, Oxford) Christ Church, Oxford

I thought it said on the website that there were tea and coffee facilities and could not find those in my room -- maybe I was mistaken. I was VERY cold as the heating is not tunred on until October1st, which I do understand. Porters kinldy gave me two extra blankets. Staff excellent and breakfast superb. I will be booking again. after October1st !!

(Revisione di Balliol College, Oxford) Balliol College, Oxford

Everything was perfect; the only tiny little drawback would be the floor of the bathroom (not so clean). Otherwise everything was perfect. I spent a wonderful weekend. The breakfast is excellent as is the food in general.

Previous we had a Quad view - well worth the extra money if available. As we mentioned last year we really miss not having a T.V . in the room . Many thanks again - had a great stay .

(Revisione di Keble College, Oxford) Keble College, Oxford

Delightful stay. Staff were all so welcoming and helpful. Room was great. College is lovely - I enjoyed a peaceful morning walk and think in the grounds. I will definitely try and book at Wadham for future stays. Thank you

(Revisione di Wadham College, Oxford) Wadham College, Oxford

Many people staying at college were there for conferences. They did not know that they could stay aaas independent travellers. This is a marketing opportunity.

(Revisione di Mansfield College, Oxford) Mansfield College, Oxford

I had a nice victorian room overlooking the quad. It was blissfully quiet but unfortunately extremely hot. There is no AC in the rooms. I was aware of this before booking but I didn't think it'd be so hot. The heat made my stay uncomfortable. A shame really. Perhaps a ceiling fan could have helped. It be a great place to stay during cooler weather.

(Revisione di Keble College, Oxford) Keble College, Oxford

Our only criticism was the noise levels of fellow guests in the night, talking loudly without considering that others were asleep and closing doors noisily in the corridor.

(Revisione di St Hugh's College, Oxford) St Hugh's College, Oxford

This was a unique lodging experience, which I wholeheartedly recommend. Image staying at Hogwarts, without all the wizards! Honestly, if you are staying in Oxford and dont mind with having to share a bathroom or the absence of a television, then Magdalen's accommodations will be perfect.
