Birthplace of William Shakespeare, the greatest writer in the English language, and home to the theater of the famous Royal Shakespeare Company. A river winds its way through the town from Holy Trinity Church, where Shakespeare is buried. There are half-timbered buildings that date back to Shakespeare's time, including the cottage of Anne Hathaway, whom he married in 1582. You can visit Shakespeare's birthplace, before having lunch in a 15th century pub in the picturesque Cotswolds.
Oxford has one of the largest and oldest universities in the world, as well as some of the finest architecture in Europe. The colleges themselves are among the highlights, their stone walls covered in ivy to protect the beautiful chapels, halls and libraries.
The noblest of the colleges is Christ Church, the home of Oxford Cathedral and the university's largest quad. The dining room was chosen as an important location in the Harry Potter movie. You can find out more about famous students of the College, including Albert Einstein and Lewis Carroll, who here wrote his enchanting tales of Alice in Wonderland. Before visiting the Church of Christ, you can have tea in the store where Alice in real life bought sweets there!
