This was well worth a visit for first timers like us to the city. An informative map was only 50p and the assistant was very helpful with advice.

We really enjoyed the Oxford univ walking tour with Brigitta, the Austrian tour guide. She is very knowledgeable about the university and gave a good background and history of the place to us. She was also full of energy!

Centrally located and near many attractions in the city. A little small and if full can get very crowded.

Hello, there isn't left luggage service at the train station, but there is at the Visitor Information Centre on Broad Street, about 10 minutes' walk away. It is available 7 days a week, in the centre's opening hours.
