Clues To Go    -    Oxford City Centre Exploration

This route starts by the Magdalen Bridge and after a few questions to answer along the High Street, turns right heading for St Giles. After that, you pass by such world-famous buildings as the Bodleian Library, the Sheldonian Theatre & the Radcliffe Camera, before finishing outside Balliol College in Broad Street.

It is not necessary to enter any of the college buildings to answer the questions.

Oxford has 5 park-&-ride car parks, signposted as you approach the city. The largest multistorey car park close to the city centre is Westgate, just off the A420 & around a 10-15 minute walk to the start of this route.

 

 

The oldest university in the English speaking world, Oxford University is made up of 38 colleges. As you stroll along the roads and backstreets, the names of these colleges are all familiar and the venerable buildings impressive having seen no outward change over the centuries. The Bodleian Library, for instance, has been a place of study for 5 kings, 25 prime ministers and at least 40 Nobel Prize winners.

If you are looking for refreshment after your walk, the Eagle & Child pub on St Giles is famous for being the favourite drinking hole of C.S.Lewis, J.R.R. Tolken & other literary greats.
