Oxford is a lovely little town in England and famous for one of the best universities in the world. Here in Cambridge we enjoy a little imagined rivalry with Oxford (a bit like Harvard vs Yale I suppose). I have heard people describe Oxford as a “second-rate university in the Midlands which occasionally produces prime ministers” (e.g. David Cameron went to Brasenose College, Oxford). Personally, I enjoy Oxford. Just like Cambridge it is a stunning town which will rightly remind you of Harry Potter as some of Hogwarts can be found here. It rains a bit more than in Cambridge, but all in all it has always been my second choice for beautiful university towns in England.
