Oxford travel tips

Let us help you with the best tips about Oxford

Best time to visit Oxford

Located in South East England, Oxford has warm summers and cool to cold winters. Spring months from March – May and autumn months from September – November, are good times to enjoy the mild weather and lesser crowds. Average temperature ranges between 10 – 17 degrees Celsius. The city also hosts several festivals around spring time, including the Oxford Jazz Festival, The Chocolate Festival, and The English Music Festival. Summer months from June – August see the maximum tourist crowd. Hotel rates also tend to be higher during this period. From December – February, the days are shorter, and there is a possibility of snowfall. Average day time temperatures hover around 6 – 8 degrees Celsius. If you do not mind the cooler temperatures, winter is a good time to visit, especially to soak in the festive atmosphere around Christmas and New Year. The city hosts a number of fairs and Christmas markets at this time.

Getting around Oxford

Most of Oxford’s tourist attractions are located north of the river, and are within walking distance of each other. The city also has an excellent bus service operated by the Oxford Bus Company. Fares start as low as £1.10 GBP for a single trip, and vary based on the bus routes and zones travelled. Biking is another very popular way to get around the city. There are several bike rental agencies in the city, or you can also take advantage of Oxford’s bike-share program called OXONBIKE. Pick up a pedal bike for £1.00 GBP per hour or an electric bike for £2.00 GBP per hour for as many hours as you wish. There are several taxi operators in the city, and taxis are easily available at all times. Avoid driving around Oxford if you can, since parking is expensive and hard to find.
