When I moved abroad to England, I knew my weekends would mostly consist of traveling. I mean, one of the reasons why I decided to go abroad for a semester was because I wanted to explore the world, and particularly Europe. Having never traveled in the past (except to the States a couple of times), I was always eager to see what the world had to offer. I wanted to see what all the hype was about. And well, let me tell you that so far, I have not been disappointed. Not only have I been out every weekend since I’ve been here, but I also have travel plans made for the months ahead! I couldn’t be more excited.
For our first weekend on ourselves in England, my friend and I were looking for a destination that was not too far away, but that we would both enjoy. We were already planning on going to Cambridge for a day (more on that soon), so we decided to get all “university” cities out of the way and threw in Oxford for a weekend (that ended up being the wrong time to do it, scroll to the bottom of the post to see why!).
I ended up loving this city so much! I think a weekend is plenty of time to get a “feel” of the city and see all of its highlights. So here’s how to spend a weekend in Oxford.
