If you don’t know where to begin exploring this city of dreaming spires, you might find our suggestions below helpful. Start with the bus tour, then the university. Each college has an identity and history of its own.

Punting is also a very Oxford thing to do and you can hire punts or be punted from Folly Bridge or Magdalen Bridge. Have a go! But it’s not as easy as it looks.
