Oxford Summer Experience
Inspiring Education in the heart of the University City of Oxford
Oxford needs little introduction as a centre of learning with its 800 year old University, beautiful architecture and river, centre of culture (art, music, theatre, museums). It is also a centre of activity and fun with punting on the river, music scene, ice skating, cinemas, restaurants, pubs, clubs, Harry Potter film locations!
