For those of us in Cambridge, it will always be 'the other place,' but what a nice place it is. Stunning ancient university town with probably superior architecture. You can spend an afternoon or a decade there and still be delighted.Recommended for:

The real home of The Hobbit - or at least JRR Tolkein. The writer who started it all wrote, lived, taught and called Oxford home. Hobbit fans gather here every September for a festival celebrating the greatness of the creator!Recommended for:

I lived in Oxford on and off for a combined total of about a year, and although I'm a Canadian expat, I consider Oxford to be my "british hometown". It's the first place I lived in the UK, I know it like the back of my hand, and it's my escape from big city life in London.
Aside from being famous for having a certain university, Oxford is a gorgeous little town with a beautiful city centre and stunning (and varied!) architecture. 1000-year old pubs, hidden gardens, lovely cafes and bookstores, and quirky shops and side streets make Oxford one of the most charming places in England, in my opinion.

You really have to watch out for student on bikes who don't care for the safety of pedestrians in their path. Oxford used to be my nearest town so I do know Oxford fairly well but as nice as it looks, I wouldn't want to live there. Its just too expensive to live there.

Beautiful university town. The university buildings are spectacular, and to walk through the street where so many famous and important thinkers have walked is pretty cool. Check out the Eagle and Child, and get an ale pie in the same pub where JRR Tolkein and CS Lewis talked about their work

I took time out of our visit to London to see Oxford for a few hours. I loved it so much, I would want to stay in the city and visit it. It is large enough to boast many restaurants and activities, but small enough to be easy to navigate. The architecture is stunning and the people are friendly.
