Oxford is known largely for its status as one of the most prestigious University towns, with the ‘dreaming spires' of the university chapels and colleges providing a magnificent cityscape; Broad Street and Radcliffe Square are particular architectural highlights. There's a general ethos of learning and intellect which pervades all aspects of Oxford, from the cosy taverns, to the cultural scene, but as well as having the university influence, Oxford also has a distinct big city feel.
Car hire in Oxford is popular, particularly amongst the student population and those in academia. It means you can peruse wider regions as far as Stonehenge and the Cotswolds.
Getting around Oxford is all about circumnavigating the museums buildings. The main sights include the Bodleian Library and the Sheldonian Theatre, both of which are on the spectacular Broad Street. Then there's the Radcliffe Camera, immediately behind and part of the library. Perhaps the city's prize is the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology.
You'll realise what a privileged central position Oxford holds in the UK when you hire a car. Blenheim Palace is less than a half an hour drive on the A40, and even the Cotswolds are an easily achievable daytrip on the A44 heading northwest. You can also take in the striking Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
