Dreaming Spires

Historic Architecture, Renowned Museums and Great Pubs

Climb to the top of Carfax Tower to see why poet Matthew Arnold dubbed Oxford “the city of dreaming spires.” This university town’s grand stone colleges are equally impressive from the ground, and many are open for tours. Children may enjoy the shrunken heads at the Pitt Rivers Museum and dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum. Shop for souvenirs at the Covered Market, and sip a pint at a traditional pub like The Bear, dating to 1242.
