Oxfordshire area guide

Oxfordshire is a county rich in history and character. The world-famous University city of Oxford sits here proudly, surrounded by spectacular scenery and flourishing quaint towns like Banbury and Chipping Norton.

The county is bordered by Warwickshire to the West, Buckinghamshire to the North-West, Berkshire to the North-East, Wiltshire to its South-East corner and Gloucestershire across much of its southern border.

Oxfordshire is home to a variety of charming period and listed homes. The properties here range from magnificent Georgian farmhouses and barn conversions to beautiful rural cottages and a few modern family homes — most surrounded by extensive grounds.

Thanks to an excellent blend of high street chains and independent shops, Oxford’s narrow cobbled streets make the county a popular destination for shoppers. They can visit the nearby Bicester Village Outlet Shopping centre for more upmarket retail options. Oxfordshire is also home to over 30 golf clubs.

Located in the south Midlands, Oxfordshire's transportation links are great, with easy access to London, the Cotswolds, Birmingham and the Chiltern Hills. Besides, the M40 runs through Birmingham and London, making it a convenient location for commuters.

Easy travel, combined with Oxfordshire’s reputation for outstanding education and culture, makes Oxfordshire one of the most attractive places to live in the UK.
