- Oxford houses a fusion of historic buildings with a lively city centre. The city offers prestigious museums and family attractions, plus a generous variety of shops. Punting and cruising make popular summer pastimes, whilst guided walking tours and bus tours are available all year round. Parks and meadows in and around the city centre are peaceful places in which to walk, picnic or simply admire the views.
- The birthplace of Winston Churchill, Blenheim Palace is a truly impressive, very large residence set amid 2,300 acres of landscaped grounds.
- Waddesdon Manor: built on a hilltop overlooking the Aylesbury Vale, it is the last remaining complete example of 'le style Rothschild'. The House combines the highest quality French furniture, textiles and decorative arts from the 18th century with magnificent English portraits and Dutch Old Masters.
