As a major university town, Oxford boasts lively nightlife, some great museums, plenty of good performing arts and a wealth of reasonably priced restaurants. It really is a beautiful city, with a compact centre, crammed with fine, old buildings, and some interesting urban villages, such as Jericho. The university influences life here with students bustling about on bicycles and crowding bookshops. They also provide entertainment on the river where they can often be seen practising for the infamous Oxford v Cambridge boat race.
It is within commuting distance of London, but also close to the more rural delights of the Cotswolds. If you are going to be using the train regularly, the two obvious areas to look are Jericho, which is within walking distance of the station, and the more cost effective option of Osney Mead, a small island with converted Victorian cottages. If it is road transport to London you need, then the suburb of Headington is a good alternative as It is a couple of miles from the city centre, but has excellent local amenities and some attractively priced properties.
