Holiday Guide to Accommodation and Attractions in Oxfordshire

Oxfordshire is a county in the South East of England, bordering on Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, and Warwickshire.

Oxford is known as the "city of dreaming spires" , a term coined by Matthew Arnold in reference to the harmonious architecture of the university buildings. The River Thames runs through Oxford, where for a distance of some 10 miles it is known as the Isis. The University's Bodleian Library, the second largest in Britain after the British Library, is almost seven centuries old and currently houses more than six and a half million documents on 169km (105 miles) of shelves in ten buildings and in a maze of underground tunnels that run beneath Broad Street and Radcliffe Square. The collection is growing at a rate of 300,000 documents every year
