Eccentric Oxford

Living in Oxford allows you to experience, visit and partake in the quirky side of the city! There is a famous tortoise race, 'Alice Day' in celebration of Alice in Wonderland, and lively Morris dancers fill the city on May Day. It is not uncommon to encounter the likes of Anthony Hopkins, Tom Cruise or even Prince William - if you are brave enough you might ask for a selfie!
