Oxford

Precisely 31 minutes away from The Trout lies the world-renowned city of Oxford. One of the country’s best-loved cities, here you can spend the day touring the lawns and cloisters of one of the world’s most iconic universities, see great 21st-century art, follow in the footsteps of literary greats from Lewis to Tolkien and step back in time at the city’s medieval castle.

For the foodies amongst you, a visit to the 18th century Covered Market thriving with local produce is a must. Pick up some Oxford sausages and cheese and head out on a punt for a picnic taking in the spires, meadows and gardens as you go.
