This centrally located English county is famous for its university, motorsport and the picturesque Cotswold villages in the west.
The county of Oxfordshire holds a central position within the UK, a little to the west and northwest of Greater London. It’s principle city, Oxford, is probably most famous for being home to one of the world’s best known universities, and the county is a gateway to the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Academia and related research is one of the reasons that travellers may find themselves seeking serviced apartments in Oxfordshire, though the Didcot Power Station is still an important part of the national grid and Abingdon has both a business and a science park. Some motorsport manufacturers, including in F1, also situate themselves in the county.
The city of Oxford is among the most visited in Britain, and tourists enjoy its many grand, older buildings – that sense of a refined England of a bygone age. The honey-coloured stone and the spires of the university buildings have a flavour that is distinctly ‘Oxford’. Business travellers visiting our Oxfordshire serviced apartments will likely want to visit the Cotswolds during their stay. Quaint market towns such as Chipping Norton and Woodstock give way to beautiful rolling hills, making this idyllic area a must while you are nearby.
Didcot and Oxford in particular are well served by the main train lines running through the centre of the country, while the M40 motorway runs from London and up towards Birmingham.
