Oxford – One day visit – What to see
Thank you for stopping by!
Finally, I am going to post something in the travel section. I couldn’t do it before as we all know what the situation is at the moment; but now, luckily we are slowly getting back to a “normal life” and this allows us to travel again.
I have been one day in Oxford a few weeks ago and I totally loved it. Apart from the fact that it has been not soo easy to find parking, everything else was really nice.
We didn’t really plan anything for that day so we just went around discovering the place.
I will share with you a few things that we have seen in case you want to go for a small adventure but you don’t know where to start.
To start with, there is a really nice shopping centre called Westgate where you can find either restaurant, cafes and shops of any type. Nice to have a break there. It’s less busy than Westfield in London for sure and it’s located in a typical area.
From the shopping centre, we walked towards The Covered Market, where you can find a shop for homemade things and food. Really lovely.
We arrived there around lunchtime so we went to this really nice rooftop restaurant called ‘The Varsity Club’ to have a meal looking at the landscape. We both had salmon with roasted potatoes and salad which was one of the best we had since we lived in London. Have a look at their website for more information https://tvcoxford.co.uk/.
After we recharged ourselves we started to explore the lovely streets of Oxford. We went to see the famous University and the places around it. Below you can see ‘The Clarendon Building’, ‘The Radcliffe Camera’ and some other interesting buildings or spots.
We also went to visit The Botanic Garden. I love plants a lot and so I wanted to really go and visit this place. I personally think that it is better to go in a warmer season and I am sure I will go again in springtime to enjoy even more this beautiful garden.

After all this long walk around the city, we wanted to have a break so we went to the ‘Art Café’. Unfortunately, there was no space for us to sit there but I really recommend it as the atmosphere was great and their products seemed great too. Here’s the link if you want to have a look https://www.artcafeoxford.co.uk/.
If you are passionate about art you can visit also the ‘Modern Art Oxford’; here’s the link https://www.modernartoxford.org.uk/.
And like every other place around England, here you can find soo many nice Charity Shops where you can find really good second-hand things at a very good price. I bought myself a nice jumper useful for winter!
This is all we did in a few hours. If you like to walk and do lots of things in one day I don’t think you need more than 1/2 days to visit Oxford. But if you like to enjoy every detail and visit places in a relaxing way, I suggest you stay one night and visit the city in two days.
I hope you found these tips useful and I will shortly post something about Nottingham! Such an amazing place!
