Oxford is a surprisingly compact yet diverse and interesting city that has so much to offer. Join the author as she takes you on a photographic tour - and prepare for the unexpected. Professional photographer Lucy Davenport will guide you through some of the most famous landmarks in the world, together with deviations into the secrets of the city. The journey will take in the historical architecture, landmarks and views in panorama and in the most intimate detail. The most amazing bird's eye views feature, starting from the historical Carfax Tower, the most central landmark in the city, and spanning outwards from there. Oxford's life and people will be seen, from its street performers to its famous faces, from its officials in uniform to a varied array of sportsmen and women. Sample a taste of the flavours it has to offer from restaurants, pubs and cafe life through to its hotels of world renown and its multi-faceted food markets and halls. Explore the outstanding architecture in the parks and gardens as well as some of the thirty-nine Colleges which make up the University. Oxford's abundant art and culture scene will be explored via the museums and galleries, along with the instantly recognisable locations for film and TV drama through "Harry Potter" to "Inspector Morse". A view of the iconic modes of transport within the modern day pedestrianised city such as bicycle and rowing boats can also be seen. The eccentric and the famous will be discovered, from Revd Spooner to the pub where Bill Clinton would enjoy a pint during his student days here. Author Lucy Davenport captures the very essence of Oxford through her unique, definitive photographic style to convey this quintessential English city. Oxford, the cultural gem, is the inspiration for so many artists, writers, residents, students and visitors. It is, as described by English poet Matthew Arnold, the 'city of dreaming spires'.
