Labelled poetically as the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’ by Matthew Arnold, Oxford offers a harmonious amalgam of the charm of the old world & the vivacity of modern existence. The city has served as the muse for some of the most celebrated artistic creations, be it Alice in Wonderland, The Wind in the Willows, the Lord of The Rings or The Chronicles of Narnia. Established as a walled city, it stands as the chronicler of some of the most historic stories emanating from England, ranging from the fierce Vikings in the north to Saxon resistance in the south.
With the university area and castle complex, the city allows the students to acquaint themselves with the glorious past symbolised by these historic structures. Also, the surrounding green areas can easily be accessed even on foot.
