Oxford, a city in central southern England, revolves around its prestigious university, established in the 12th century. The architecture of its 38 colleges in the city’s medieval center led poet Matthew Arnold to nickname it the 'City of Dreaming Spires'. University College and Magdalen College are off the High Street, which runs from Carfax Tower (with city views) to the Botanic Garden on the River Cherwell.

'Cotswolds' is a combination of two very old English words. Everyone's pretty much agreed that 'Wolds' are gentle hills. And most people agree that 'Cots' are sheep enclosures. So 'Cotswolds' probably just means an area of gentle hills with plenty of sheep around.

Stop At: Blenheim Palace, Woodstock OX20 1PP, UK
Blenheim Palace is a monumental country house in Blenheim, Oxfordshire, England. It is the principal residence of the Dukes of Marlborough, and the only non-royal, non-episcopal country house in England to hold the title of palace.
Situated in the stunning Oxfordshire countryside, Blenheim Palace is one of England’s largest houses and a hugely popular tourist attraction
Over its near-300 years of history, Blenheim Palace has been a family home, mausoleum and national monument, but it’s arguably most famous as the birthplace and home of Sir Winston Churchill, England’s Prime Minister between 1940-45 and 1951-55. Churchill even proposed to his wife, Clementine Hozier, in the grounds of the Palace, in the Temple of Diana summerhouse on 11 August 1908.
The park and gardens were transformed by famed English landscape architect, Capability Brown. From his appointment in 1764, he worked to enhance the landscape with newly planted trees and man-man undulations. But it’s the Palace’s lake, which he created by damming the River Glyme, which is arguably the stand-out man-made feature.
