I used this guide in 2005 and found it excellent, indispensable really. It certainly far exceeds any other guide to OxCam I've come across. And it will travel with me again. I used this guide as I studied at Oxford and visited Cambridge. It is superb in every way. I was most impressed by the details of the construction of the college chapels and the artwork they contained; how could a guide be so compact yet so thorough? Easy to slip in a coat pocket so you look less like a tourist when striding through college gates, easy to slip out and reference when some striking architectural feature raises a question.

There was nothing in this book that exceeded the little guides provided by the local travel board. These are small towns so expecting an in depth guide was unreasonable I suppose. The Oxford: A Cultural and Literary Companion was much more informative about the city and fun to read.

Detailed travelogue of places. Type is a bit small and lots of information in a small book.

I used this guide in 2005 and found it excellent, indispensable really. It certainly far exceeds any other guide to OxCam I've come across. And it will travel with me again.

If you have the least interest in the history and architecture of the two towns, get this book! It's very helpful with both the big picture and such details as what's what in this hall or that chapel. For example, there's over three pages on Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, with a wealth of information on when this and that was constructed and by whom. And there is an additional four pages (small print) on the rest of the college of Christ Church.

The guide also has plenty of useful information such as the usual opening times at the various colleges. And there's a number of helpful maps. It does not at all neglect the logistics of touring the two towns. I think I found both my hotels from this book in 2005 and was pleased with both.

I've found it tells me almost all I need to know and gives a good education on Oxford and Cambridge. Yet, the guide is small in size, 7.6 x 4.4 x 0.6 inches. I found it easy to carry around as I walked about. And you will want to carry it around.

Do I need to say more? Well, yes. This guide is not easy to find in the U. S. And it can take a while for Amazon to deliver it (at least as I write this). So if you're traveling to England, order it well ahead of time. You'll be glad you did.
