You Are Here: Home - Travel - London trip day 6: Oxford (the oldest university in English-speaking world)

University of Oxford, Bodleian library

''As the oldest university in the English-speaking world, Oxford is a unique and historic institution. There is no clear date of foundation, but teaching existed at Oxford in some form in 1096 and developed rapidly from 1167, when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris. ''


Bridge of Sights

Oxford Christ Church


Many of the scenes in the Harry Potter are shot in Oxford, Christ Church - borrow a picture... remember this scene? Unfortunately the great hall did not open to the public today due to the University perspective students visiting.
