Oxford is nice, but I cant use english as a language at the Tripadvisor. We can use only some Czech-translated tripadvisor here. There are no translations for so many places, I dont want this, i want english version. So good bye.

You will recognize it immediately from TV scenes. The buildings are just beautiful. It feels like walking around in a scene from Morse.

Oxford as a whole is a great place to visit. The architecture everywhere is just breathtaking. Worthwhile taking the double decker bus to view the city before setting off on foot.
