Please scroll down the page for our selection of hotels and inns in Oxford. Oxford is known as the 'City of Dreaming Spires' and is famous for its university, founded in the 12th century. The university is made up of a group of colleges, the most famous perhaps being Christ Church and Balliol. The historic centre of Oxford is small enough to explore on foot, and many of the colleges are open to the public out of term time. As well as the colleges, the city boasts several famous museums including the Ashmolean, Britain’s oldest public museum. If Oxford seems familiar, it is probably because the city has featured in many films and television series and is perhaps most closely associated with TV’s ‘Inspector Morse’. Our selection of hotels and inns in Oxford includes not only hotels in Oxford itself but also inns situated nearby in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside.
