Oxford, made prominent by its university, has a population of just under 165,000. The rivers Cherwell and Thames run through the city and meet south of the city centre.
Buildings in Oxford demonstrate an example of every British architectutal period since the arrival of the Saxons, including the iconic, mid-18th century Radcliffe Camera. The University of Oxford is the oldest university in the English-speaking world.
Oxford is a very green city, with several parks and nature walks within the ring road, as well as several sites just outside the ring road.
