New College, Oxford University

Stay at a hotel in Oxford to slip into prestigious university colleges and cosy pubs or punt past meadows and parkland.

Historic Oxford

Hop between the city’s colleges from your Oxford hotel. The vast quadrangle of 16th-century Christ Church stands in for Hogwart’s in the Harry Potter movies. Cut through the deer park on Magdalen’s tree-lined Addison’s Walk. The dusty reading rooms at the Bodleian Library have received every UK book published since 1610.

Art and museums in Oxford

The Ashmolean Museum hoards Michelangelo’s scribbles and neolithic skulls behind its portico entrance, while the Pitt Rivers Museum displays mummies and totem poles found by intrepid explorers. Become an inmate in a prison C-wing to view Oxford’s art scene at O3 Gallery.

Quirky things to do in Oxford

Actor Bill Spectre dons his top hat and packs his props on his ghoulish Oxford Ghost Trail. Enjoy ale on an Inspector Morse Trail, which refuels at the moody detective’s watering hole, the Eagle and Child. Jaws would quiver at the 25m, fibreglass Headington Shark embedded in a New High Street terrace roof.

Events in Oxford

The enchanting madrigals sung from Magdalen College’s Great Tower at 6am and a breakfast of Bloody Marys and bangers cure hangovers after Oxford’s all-night May Day party. Bring your ceilidh skills to a hotel in Oxford in April for grass-roots jigs during Oxford Folk Festival.
