Go for the Culture
A summer getaway in Oxford can be the perfect option if you love learning about the past and gazing at architecture from different centuries.

You will be able to visit the emblematic Oxford University, as well as Blenheim Palace and Oxford Castle and Prison. These are all places that one should visit at least once in their lifetime. The best part of this is, you can explore even on a rainy day. However, if you are lucky enough with a sunny hot day, don’t miss to take a walk in Blenheim Palace Gardens.
