If you are bookish, little bit conservative and elite then Oxford is a privileged place for you. Oxford is one of the world’s most famous university towns and yet remarkably restrained for a city driven by its student population. It’s the kind of place where the pursuit of excellence, the weight of academic achievement and the whiff of intellectual ideals is palpable as soon as you get off the bus.
The basic reason behind your trip to this fabulous place is to explore London’s surrounding areas during a day trip, fancy themselves a student at the world famous Oxford University or pay homage to C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the Inklings.
Although Oxford University is not as exclusive as it used to be in the old days, the rowing contests between Oxford and Cambridge still take place and many of the colleges are not open to the public when the stressful time of important exams shows its face again to the students with a good scholarship or a copiously filled wallet. However, when they are accessible to the public, the thirty university ‘castles’ are a must-see.
