Oxford is universally renowned as a university town. The University of Oxford was the first university founded in the UK and shares with the University of Paris the distinction of being the 5th oldest university on Earth, with both institutions having been established in 1096.
The city of ‘ivory towers’ and ‘dreaming spires’, Oxford boasts one of the richest architectural landscapes on Earth, with examples of every type of English architectural period since the Saxon invasions in the 5th century CE.
The wealth of incredible architecture that constitutes arguably the world’s most famous university has filled several hundred books on its own. Christchurch alone has been immortalised countless times in various films, including The Golden Compass, Brideshead Revisited and the Harry Potter octalogy, for which its dining hall served as the set for Hogwarts Great Hall.
Oxford House Prices & Redevelopment
Oxford has been called the most unaffordable city in the UK, due to the fact that, on average, house prices are around 11 times higher than the average wage. According to respected property company Savill’s house price index, average house prices in the city have increased by 9.7% in the past year and are up 36.4% over the past 5 years. Home.co.uk’s own index shows even more significant rises; they place annual growth to May 2014 at 14%. However, recently introduced restrictions introduced by the government and Bank of England to cool the market, combined with the seeming perpetual threat of an increase in interest rates, will almost certainly slow the market and determine how realistically representative these increases are.
Although ostensibly great news for those who enjoy watching their property wealth escalate, grumbling concerns of a housing bubble are beginning to grow louder. Only time will tell if the spiralling of Oxford prices can continue, or if they are likely to come back to earth with a bump in the future.
Oxford’s buoyant economy is likely to receive an additional shot in the arm from several sympathetic regeneration projects currently taking place in the city. As Oxfordshire City Council points out, significant regeneration and restoration already completed includes: “Oxford Castle Quarter and Bonn Square, as well as improvements to Queen Street, New Inn Hall Street, the Old Fire Station and Castle Mill Stream.” The council asserts thats: “Building on these successes, continued regeneration over the coming years, particularly around Oxford Station, Westgate, Frideswide Square and Oxpens, will help create an environment that properly reflects the area’s historical and social value.”
Other major regeneration projects that have either been begun or are scheduled to do so include Rose Hill, Blackbird Leys, The Barton Project, The Northern Gateway and Wood Farm.
Oxford Culture & Attractions
Other notable architectural features in the city are myriad: the iconic Radcliffe Camera, the Bodleian Library in Broad Street, Hertford Bridge which is more often referred to as The Bridge of Sighs, The University Church of St Mary the Virgin, The Sheldonian Theatre, The Ashmolean Museum, The Pitts Rivers Museum, The Holywell Music Room, Oxford Castle, The Examination Schools, The Turf Tavern, Carfax Tower, The Saxon Tower of St Michael at the North Gate, The Grand Cafe, The Ultimate Picture Palace, Martyr’s Memorial, The Clarendon Building, Oxford University Press, The Botanical Gardens, The Church of St Mary Magdalen, the list is endless!
Oxford’s economy is very diverse. Given its fame as one of the world’s premier university towns, it is perhaps somewhat axiomatic to note that the education and science and technology sectors are strongly represented in Oxford. The iconic Morris Motors motor manufacturing plant has been located in the suburb of Cowley since 1910. It is a major centre of the publishing industry, with Oxford University Press, Wiley-Blackwell and many other smaller publishing houses all located in the city. Service industries are also strong in the city, with the retail sector contributing largely to the local economy. The healthcare industry is also a big employer in Oxford.
As well as possessing excellent road, rail, river and canal links, London Oxford Airport in Kidlington also serves the residents of Oxford.
Oxford Tradition & History
Founded by the Saxons as Oxenforda at the turn of the 10th century, as the name suggests, Oxford grew up around a point where it was possible to transport oxen across the meeting point of the Rivers Thames and Cherwell. The Thames in Oxford is more popularly known as the Isis, which derives from its Latin name ‘Thamesis’.
Oxford soon became a crucial military frontier town between the ancient Anglo-Saxon towns of Wessex and Mercia. Raided by the Vikings and heavily damaged by the Normans, Oxford later served as the site of Charles I’s court during the English Civil War and provided the mile that Roger Bannister famously ran in 4 minutes back in 1954.
