When you board any of the flights to Oxford, U.K., you should be prepared to visit the youngest 1,100 year-old-city you'll ever see. Although Oxford University has a long and august reputation, the young crowd keeps the area vibrant and constantly changing. Oxford is definitely a college town and has a variety of bars, cafes, nightclubs, and shops. It also has some stunning historic architecture, a growing technology industry, and easy access to London. Grab a camera, pack a raincoat, and start exploring. Oxford flights land at London Oxford Airport (OXF), just nine miles from Oxford.
Before you can head over to one of the many Oxford hotels, you will probably need to arrange transportation. Leaving the airport, there are several options. You can grab a cab from the airport terminal. You can also rent a car; there are several rental companies offering vehicles at the airport, but remember to drive on the left, not the right. If you don't want to deal with the hassle of driving, or prefer cheap transportation, you can always grab a bus or take the tube. There are even commuter rail services that let you explore the rest of the U.K., all with easy access from the airport terminal. Before you head off to London, you should take in some of the historic sites in Oxford. Head 9.2 miles south to look over the skyline from the top of Tom Tower. Then, cross the street and admire the architectural details at Christ Church Cathedral, all before heading to your hotel.
