Oxford Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Strolling through its streets, lanes, courtyards and gardens takes visitors into a world populated for most of the year by black-gowned undergraduates. Beyond this iconic image, the city and its surrounding countryside make for a pleasant backdrop for a few days’ stay.
