Oxford - a tour of history, architecture and great characters
Oxford is one of a handful of great tourist destinations in the United Kingdom. There is centuries of history in this city. It was the capital of England during the Civil War of the 17th century when King Charles I moved his court here. The colleges make up some of Britain's most stunning architecture and many great figures from world history studied or taught here. Because it is above all a university city the students make sure it's a lively place for a visit.
