Christ Church Cathedral serves as a college chapel for Christ Church College, and is also the cathedral of the diocese of Oxford. The Anglican cathedral dates back originally to the 12th Century, and is a beautiful edifice that is famed for its high arches and towering pillars. In the 16th Century, the Cathedral was taken over by Cardinal Wolsey, and soon after by Henry VIII himself. The cathedral choir is one of the finest in the city.

Known by locals as "The Broad," Broad Street is famous for its landmark locations and the historic events which occurred there. Visitors should expect an educational walk as they pass the area where Protestant Oxford martyrs Hugh Latimer, Nicholas Ridley and Thomas Cranmer were burned at the stake. Buy books on the local area or just about any other subject at the world famous Blackwell's which offers more books for sale than any shop in all of Europe. The Balliol College, Trinity College and Exeter College; all part of University College Oxford are also on the street.

South Park is a beautiful park in the south of the city towards Headington. Situated on one of the few hills in Oxford, it's the place where people go sledging when it snows and tripping through the daisies when spring is in the air, and organized fireworks displays are held here in November. The park is also the home of the circus that seems to pop into town every so often. It's a delightful spot—just the place to have a picnic or walk your dog.
