Best known for being the home of the oldest university in the English speaking world (the University of Oxford), Oxford is a beautiful city located only an hour and a half from London. The architecture of the University of Oxford’s 38 colleges in the city’s medieval center led to it being nicknamed the 'City of Dreaming Spires'. Millions of visitors travel to the city every year to discover Oxford’s history, traditions and walk in the footsteps of famous alumni like J.R.R. Tolkein and C.S. Lewis, as well as to explore Harry Potter filming locations.
