Oxford is a city and county town of Oxfordshire and is roughly 25 miles to the north west of Reading and 50 miles to the north west of London. The city lies on the River Thames and River Cherwell which both run through the city centre.
Oxford is perhaps most famous for being home of Oxford University which is the oldest university in the English speaking world. The University was first mentioned in 12th century records with the oldest colleges being University College (1249), Balliol (1263) and Merton (1264).
The architecture of Oxford demonstrates examples of many different architectural styles since the arrival of the Saxons which includes the mid 18th century Radcliffe Camera. Oxford is also known as the "city of dreaming spires" which is a term coined by the poet Matthew Arnold.
Oxford's city centre is quite small and its centre is Carfax which is a cross roads which forms the junction of Cornmarket Street, Queen Street, St Aldate's and The High. This area has many retail outlets, national chains and smaller independent stores, local government buildings and the police station. Oxford also has two small shopping centres: The Clarendon Centre and The Westgate Centre.
The city of Plymouth is located on the south coast of Devon, in the south west of England. There are many attractions in and around the city for visitors to enjoy.

The museum has 10 permanent galleries, two galleries that hosts changing exhibitions throughout the year, a shop and a cafe. There are plenty of outdoor action packed family experiences to enjoy also. Plymouth Sound, and the rivers that flow into it, bustle with crafts large and small and a fantastic network of water taxis, foot ferries, sightseeing tours and fishing trips offer great family friendly ways to explore. From Stonehouse hop on a ferry and make the ancient crossing to Mount Edgcumbe via the Cremyll Ferry. The ferry route dates back to the 11th century and carries passengers over the River Tamar to the beautiful country park, ideal for a day exploring or relaxing, with plenty of room to kick a ball, ride bikes or fly a kite. Alternatively, join a Tamar Cruise from the Barbican to experience Plymouth from the water and discover the weird and wonderful wildlife that calls our waterfront home.
