Oxford is a picturesque provincial town set in the heart of the English countryside.
Just two hours outside of London, this university town is a popular place for short

small city and include landmarks such as Christ Church Cathedral, St Michael at
the Northgate that dates back over 1000 years, and the New Bodleian Library that
houses the Radcliffe Camera a reading room built over 250 years ago. The centre of
town is a busy shopping district where traditional teahouses and cafes can be found.
For a more alternative vibe tourists should head to Cowley Road on the east side of
the university. The area has a creative buzz and shops serve up oriental and Arabic
delicacies, sell second hand clothes and local artists’ work and celebrate the areas
diversity. There are good pubs in the area and live music venues that showcase local
and international bands.
Rent a room short term
Accommodation in Oxford is generally quite expensive and can get quickly booked
out in high season, which runs from May through to September. The city does
have youth hostels and backpacker dorms but be sure to book in advance. Popular
areas to stay include Abingdon Road, Cornmarket Street and Park End Street. For
cheap B&Bs and guesthouses head to the eastern side of Oxford where the Cowley
Road is a comfy place to stay. Luxury hotels can be found in the cit centre and
on its periphery. However, if a hostel stay or expensive hotel is not the type of
accommodation you are looking for there is an alternative choice for short term
rentals. You could find short term rentals direct from private local owners and soak
up all their knowledge and insight of the region. And on the website Wimdu this is
exactly what you can do! Wimdu puts you in touch with local apartment owners
and allows you to review and rate your short term rentals and find out what Oxford
really has to offer!
