Secret Oxford, Paperback / softback Book

Secret Oxford Paperback / softback

Part of the Secret series


Oxford is identified with its university, and the university has certainly played a huge role in shaping the town.

But the history of Oxford is much more than just a footnote to its colleges.

The town was already old when the first scholars gathered there, and it has seen many major non-academic milestones, such as the founding of the hugely influential Morris works at Cowley by Lord Nuffield. Secret Oxford explores town and gown, the little-known facts as well as the well-known ones, and directs the reader - tourist or resident - to key locations and visible remains.

Each well-illustrated chapter ends with a list of related things that must be seen.

There are also a number of self-guided walks to help the reader experience the diverse flavour of the city and its history.
