In and around Oxford

Oxford is proud of the people who have represented the city with honour and made their mark on the world. From Tamesibugus, a Roman Potter from the second century to Colin Dexter, the creator of Inspector Morse – these Oxfordians have been honoured in a timeline placed in the Town Hall. For a re-creation of the timeline, see: An Oxford Timeline

Oxford has many grand opening statements, like the entry to Brasenose College on High Street, the main street of Oxford. This entry isn’t used. Residents enter from the side, a less imposing entry, but for its surroundings: University Church, the Radcliffe Camera and the Bodleian Library. 

Most of the famous buildings can be accessed easily from Broad Street. For instance, the entry to Balliol College can be found in Broad Street, along with the entry to Trinity College.
