Cultural, classy and oh so charming, Oxford is the old school city that stays endlessly enchanting. This dreamy destination entices visitors with its spires, it’s cobbled streets and its riverside, seducing you with secret side streets and doorways that glimpse into otherworldly sights (it’s no wonder Harry Potter was filmed here).
I grew up just outside the city, and Oxford has long had a place in my heart. Although it’s not unheard of to see a robed academic whisking past you on two wheels or to find yourself sat in a pub that Tolkien once drank in, Oxford retains a friendly, youthful charm. And whether you come here to shop, visit the theatre or explore the museums, there are some beautiful places to stay. Here are some of my favourite picks for a stylish break.
