The City of Oxford was home to C.S Lewis, JRR Tolkein and the birthplace of Stephen Hawking. Twenty-six British Prime Ministers were educated at Oxford University, along with many famous individuals such as Tim Berners Lee, computer scientist and inventor of the World Wide Web. Oxford is home to the oldest university in England.

Since its foundation in 1621 the Botanic Garden has been a jewel in the crown of the University of Oxford and a focal point for any visit to Oxford.
The Garden is the place to visit if you seek knowledge about the plant kingdom and its central role in our culture, if you seek horticultural inspiration or if you simply want to find a refuge from the bustle of the city.
Both public and private tours available.
We recommend this as a perfect end to your day. You take in a fascinating stretch of River as you cruise down the university regatta course towards quaint Iffley village. You’ll pass ancient Folly Bridge, Christchurch College and Meadows and the university rowing houses.
Rowing eights, punts, university boats and large pleasure cruisers come together in a lively display of all that the river has to offer.
