The poet Matthew Arnold once called Oxford the ‘City of Dreaming Spires,’ after the architecture of the 38 colleges in the city’s medieval centre. Magdalen College and University College are just off Oxford’s high street, and the famous Botanic Garden is on the River Cherwell. 

There are four cemeteries in Oxford. These are Botley Cemetery, Headington Cemetery, Rose Hill Cemetery, and Wolvercote Cemetery. The crematoria in Oxford include South Oxfordshire Crematorium & Memorial Park, North Oxfordshire Crematorium & Memorial Park, and Banbury Crematorium.

Christ Church Meadow is a popular place for locals to gather in summer. The grass is a beautiful green and there are plenty of shaded seats for you to escape from the sun. Ducks, geese, swans and squirrels also enjoy the idyllic park that is set against Christ Church College. 

Oxford is also home to the famous Botanical Gardens. Founded in 1621, it is the oldest botanical garden in Britain. Brimming with beautiful plants from around the world, it is a place of tranquillity in the busy city centre.
