Why Live In Oxfordshire

Why Live In Oxfordshire

South

Oxfordshire is regarded by many as one of England’s most attractive Counties, lying midway between the Thames estuary and the River Severn, with the glorious Cotswolds to the north and the chalk hills of the Chilterns to the south. Oxfordshire is far enough away from London to have real countryside calm, however it is still within a 60 minute train journey to London and has easy access to the airports. The M40 ensures good access to West London and also to The Midlands.

Henley: Home of the Royal Regatta

The magnificent city of Oxford and Henley-on-Thames are two of the well-known names in the region. Henley is best known for its Royal Regatta held every July since 1839. It became 'Royal' in 1851 when Prince Albert became Patron of the Regatta. As well as being a sporting event the Regatta is a major social event retaining a 'garden party' feel. Many buildings in Henley are designated 'of special architectural interest' and the main street has several Georgian frontages built on to older buildings.

Settle in the Historic City of the Dreaming Spires

Oxford is known as the historic student city of dreaming spires and the city's history is fascinating. The Romans made Oxford a pottery centre, the Saxon princess Frideswide founded a religious community on the site of Oxford's cathedral and the Oxenford, the original Saxon crossing point, gave the city its name. The golden stone of university buildings with their spires, towers and domes have shaped Oxford into a graceful and timeless city.

Enjoy The Cotswolds: An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

The Cotswolds is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty extending from Chipping Campden in the North to Bath in the South. The Eastern section of the Cotswolds covers parts of West Oxfordshire including the market towns of Burford, Chipping Norton, Witney and Woodstock, the home of Blenheim Palace. The Cotswolds is famous for its picturesque rural countryside and beautiful villages made from honey coloured limestone. The word "Cotswolds" comes from the word "cots" meaning stone sheep shelters and "wold" meaning rolling hills.
