Located around 50 miles north west of the capital and home to nearly 140,000 residents, the picturesque city of Oxford has long been most renowned for it's university - the oldest in the country and, indeed, much of the western world.
Some of the greatest minds in British history have been drawn by Oxford's so-called 'Dreaming Spires', and to this day the city's beautiful architecture attracts tourists by the million every year.
Much like it's smaller cousin Cambridge, Oxford is also famous for the sight of punts on the river, by far the most pleasant way to take in the city.
The city has a historical link to the motor trade that remains to this day: once the site of the Morris Motor Company and British Leyland, these days the Cowley motor plant is still producing cars in the shape of the new Mini.
