Book an Oxfordshire hotel and discover for yourself this historic county in the heart of England. Experience riverside life in vibrant market towns and peaceful villages tucked away in the countryside, or explore Oxford itself and fall in love with the city of dreaming spires.

Town and city breaks in Oxfordshire

It goes without saying that the college buildings of Oxford University have to be seen on your short break, but make sure you soak up more from this wonderful city. Admire the Botanic Garden and visit one of Oxford's many museums, such as the University Museum of Natural History, or explore local film locations from Harry Potter or The Golden Compass. Enjoy the beautiful architecture in the historical town of Abingdon, once dominated by a huge Benedictine monastery Abingdon Abbey. Sadly no ruins of the abbey itself remain, but you can see the other monastic buildings in the area that have survived. Visit Henley-On-Thames in the summer to join in the festivities at the celebrated Henley Royal Regatta or, when it's a little less crowded on the water, take your own gentle boat trip down the river. Follow with a relaxing afternoon tea in the town's lovely market square.

Holidays in the Oxfordshire countryside

From your hotel in Oxfordshire be sure to walk a stretch of the stunning Thames Path Trail, which runs through much of the county. See the picturesque (though incongruously titled) 14th century Newbridge where it crosses the river, flanked by serene weeping willows and with a country pub at either side. Head south to the Oxfordshire border to see the legendary Uffington White Horse, leaping over a slope of what was formerly the Berkshire Downs. Just beneath it you'll find Dragon Hill, a small chalk hillock where, folklore has it, Saint George slew his famous foe. Stroll through the woodlands and spot some rare wildlife at the charming Mowbray Fields Local Nature Reserve in Didcot, ideal for nature walks, and renowned for its abundance of orchids and other wildflowers.

Attractions in Oxfordshire

Take a day trip to see one of Oxfordshire's many stately houses, such as the vast Blenheim Palace in Woodstock. Near Henley you'll find Tudor mansion Greys Court and its scenic gardens, as well as the home of William Morris, Nuffield Place. For a touch of the exotic you might not have expected to find in the English countryside, make for Cotswold Wildlife Park where you can explore acres of land inhabited by roaming rhinos, giraffes, leopards and lions. Wind down with a little retail therapy at Bicester Village designer outlet centre, loved by shopaholics UK wide.
