The top four reasons why our hotel in oxford loves oxford

Oxford is an incredible place, world renowned as a centre of learning, blending historical charm with the buzz of a modern city. Our boutique hotel in Oxford is right in the heart of the city of dreaming spires, and we wanted to share just a few reasons why we love Oxford.

The amazing architecture (including our hotel in Oxford…)

There is no denying this city’s incredible architecture.  From the Saxon tower of St Michael and the Gothic college chapels to the Palladian style Radcliffe Camera, Oxford is full of impressive buildings for you to marvel at. Our hotel in Oxford is housed in a honey coloured town house and is the perfect base from which to explore the rest of the city.

The plentiful outdoor spaces

The beauty of Oxford is that one minute you can be on a thriving and bustling market street, and the next you can be in a quiet secluded garden, all in the heart of the city. The Oxford Botanic Gardens, Christ Church Meadow and Oxford University Parks are just a few favourites of our hotel in Oxford. Better yet, take a scenic stroll along the canal from Folly Bridge to Iffley Lock, the famous stretch of river where the college rowing crews battle it out each year.

The compelling culture

Culture vultures are spoilt for choice in Oxford with the world famous Ashmolean Museum, filled with half a million years’ worth of art and technology or the Pitt Rivers Museum with its impressive archaeological and anthropological collections. If it’s a nice day, there’s no better way to learn the history of the city than with a guided walking tour with an Oxford expert, something our boutique hotel in Oxford can help you arrange!

The superior shopping

The Covered Market, founded in the 18th Century, is a highlight of the city and home to a myriad of treasures waiting to be uncovered. Head down to the main market street for your favourite high street shops or seek out the quirky independent shops dotted all across the city. If you’re in need of even more retail therapy, world class luxury shopping destination Bicester Village is less than a 30-minute drive from our boutique hotel in Oxford. You really can shop ‘til you drop in the city of dreaming spires!
