Oxford is a city in central southern England. It is the county town of Oxfordshire, and forms a district within the county. I frequently visited Oxford as I was working for EBA, Lincoln College, Oxford University as their brand ambassador.  

During my visits to Oxford I realized that Oxford has a diverse economic base. Its industries included motor manufacturing, publishing and a large number of information technology and science-based businesses, and not only education.

The city is known worldwide as a university town and home of the University of Oxford, I got several opportunity to propose my research topics in University of Oxford. 

I normally used to travel by train but once I even traveled by a coach which was also a good experience as I had to change buses, due to lack of direct connections to Newcastle. 

Buildings in Oxford demonstrate an example of every English architectural period since the arrival of the Saxons, including the iconic, mid-18th-century Radcliffe Camera.

I visited a few museums in Oxford like the Ashmolean Museum, which was the world’s first university museum, The museum of history of science as well as the museum of natural history.The city center of Oxford is relatively small, and is centered on Carfax, a cross-roads which forms the junction of Corn market StreetQueen Street, St Aldate's and The High. Corn Market Street and Queen Street are home to Oxford's various chain stores

The Bodleian Library was one of the best academic libraries I have ever visited; they even make you sign a declaration before admission, it is the second largest library in England after the British library in London (view my visit to London).

I also took buses to Pear Tree, Red bridge, Sea Court which are places around Oxford.
