Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) in Oxford

Oxford, the City of Dreaming Spires, is undoubtedly one of the jewels in England’s crown. Its striking mix of architectural styles, academic atmosphere, and peaceful gardens and river walks make it the perfect place to pause and view England as it was meant to be. But for the literary traveler, Oxford is more than just Olde England, it is a true gem, and at just forty-five minutes from London by train, it is an absolute must-see.
