If you haven’t sorted your summer plans already, you should think about visiting Oxford University soon.
Learning About the Oxford University History
Many people visit Oxford University just to learn more about the history of the building and the school. They want to hear stories about famous alumni and see the way students were taught back in the day. For many it is simply a tourist attraction and we are not going to lie, the architecture of those buildings is exquisite! You won’t regret spending a weekend or several days in Oxfordshire, exploring the University campuses and visiting other landmarks in the area. If that’s your plan, you should book a comfortable and cosy accommodation, where you can rest peacefully and enjoy privacy. Short let flats and serviced apartments are a brilliant option.
Visiting Oxford University as a Prospective Student
If you are thinking of going to Oxford University you must be very ambitious and ready for a challenge. With long and well kept traditions, Oxford University has a lot to offer to its prospective students during a visit. Learn about the life on campus, the curriculum, the professors and other important things you need to know before you join. There’s an option to book a room at the school dorms, which may be a good idea to try if you are planning to live on campus. However, it may also be a good idea to get a better feel of the life in the city and the surrounding areas. It may be cheaper to rent a place in a nearby village. So, in that case, when visiting Oxford university as a prospective student, book a private accommodation in town or close to it. Something similar to what you would rent for longer term, either by yourself, or with some of your friends.
Stop by Blenheim Palace
If you have already planned a visit to Oxford university, do not go back home before you see Blenheim Palace. It’s an emblematic place for the whole of the UK – the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. The palace is huge, complemented by a large, beautiful garden. One day will certainly not be enough to look through it all. We would recommend extending your visit to Oxfordshire to make the most of this very English, full of history and culture area. And to make your stay more pleasant, book yourself a cosy little serviced apartment. You will enjoy undisturbed privacy and quality maintenance of a 5-star hotel.
