Top Things To Do In Oxford on a Budget

Oxford is one of the most recognizable cities in Britain, next to London. It is the oldest university in the English-speaking world and one of the most prestigious.

Oxford holds high celebrity status not only for its long and impressive list of famous graduates from around the globe but also as the backdrop for many films and TV series.

Take A Walking Tour

Head down Broad Street, and you will find many operators on the sidewalk offering free walking tours. Don’t bypass these young folk in favour of the more expensive tours at the Tourist Information Centre.

Visit The Bodleian Library

The main research library of the University is also one of the oldest in Europe. Housing over 11 million items, it is only second in size to the British Library.

Bodleian Library Tours

We recommend going on a Sunday when there are no students around; you will get to see more of the library than on any other day – book well in advance, these are booked out weeks prior.

The University Church of St Mary the Virgin

While Oxford has no shortage of notable chapels and cathedrals, this church welcomes visitors free of charge throughout the week, whether just for a look around or to attend a service.

Oxford Pubs

Oxford, like the rest of England, has no shortage of pubs but when in Oxford we suggest you head to their most famous pub for a pint – The Turf Tavern.

Oxford Museums

The Museum of The History of Science, here you will find the world’s finest collection of scientific instruments, as well as scientific calculations chalked by none other than Einstein himself.
