Founded in 1683, the Ashmolean is Britain’s first public museum and home to the University of Oxford’s world-class collections of art and archaeology.
The collections span the civilisations of east and west, charting the aspirations of humankind from the Neolithic era to the present day. Among its treasures are the world's largest collection of Raphael drawings, the most important collection of pre-Dynastic Egyptian material in Europe, the only great Minoan collection in Britain, the finest Anglo-Saxon collections outside the British Museum and the foremost collection of modern Chinese art in the Western world.

Bodliean Library & Radcliffe Camera
Oxford’s libraries are among the most celebrated in the world, not only for their incomparable collections of books and manuscripts, but also for their buildings, some of which have remained in continuous use since the Middle Ages. Among them the Bodleian, the chief among the University’s libraries, has a special place.
The Radcliffe Camera is also among these collection of libraries and is one of the most distinctively beautiful buildings in Oxford.
One of Britain’s finest stately homes and a World Heritage Site – Blenheim Palace was the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. The house is open from March to October and the Capability Brown parkland throughout the year. Discounted tickets for the park, palace and gardens are available at the hotel reception.
St Mary's Church in Iffley is famous for its beauty and architectural interest. It was built in 1170 and is one of the finest examples of Romanesque architecture in the country. The church remains very much the same as when it was first built, and is open daily for visiting.
