Oxfordshire

The city of Oxford is a main educational centre and a vibrant, tourist hotspot in the heart of England. The "city of dreaming spires" has lured many a traveller over the centuries. Combine this with the relaxing, rolling hills of the Cotswolds, quintessentially English villages, and market towns, and Oxfordshire is a great place to visit.
