The battle of brains between Oxford and Cambridge is spectacular, as they also train on the river to see who is the better rower each year. Oxford is synonymous with the University, but there is so much more to explore in this beautiful little town. In fact, the reason the architecture still looks so profound is because Hitler ordered for it not to be bombed at all as he wanted it to be his capital, that’s how much he loved it! The gargoyles might look creepy but they are a really cool aspect about the town and make for some great snaps.
