When walking around the city, it's an easy place to find and take pictures. An iconic spot in Oxford.

Scenic neighborhood, but this graceful construction isnt as old as it looks. Designed the early years of 20th century to link the old and new quads of Hertford College. Nobody calls it by its original name, because of the resemblance to the famous bridge in...More

Bridge Of Sighs is worth a 2 minute detour wherever you are in Oxford city. It's an iconic piece fo Oxford architecture right next to the Bodleian complex and the Radcliffe Camera so why not go and get a selfie/photo.

Even though this bridge isn't as old as it might seem, it is still a beautiful spot. It evokes architecture of Venice and other parts of Europe. It's amazing to stand and look at it.

This Oxford landmark is easy to find, close to the end of Broad Street where it meets Catte Street. It is best viewed from the area around the Sheldonian Theatre, and if you go under it from there, you will find St Helens Passage on...More
