Oxford, a prestigious and historic city in southeast England, is globally renowned for its world-class university, the University of Oxford. Established in the 12th century, the university is the oldest English-speaking institution of its kind and consistently ranks among the top universities worldwide. It comprises 39 independent colleges, each offering unique experiences and traditions.
Oxford's rich history is evident in its stunning architecture, including the iconic Radcliffe Camera, Bodleian Library, and Sheldonian Theatre. The city has nurtured numerous renowned scholars, writers, and scientists, such as Albert Einstein, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Stephen Hawking, cementing its status as an intellectual powerhouse.
Oxford has also been a hub of culture, with the Ashmolean Museum housing an extensive collection of art and archaeology. Literary enthusiasts can explore the settings that inspired famous works like "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "The Chronicles of Narnia."
Nestled along the River Thames and River Cherwell, the city offers picturesque views and ample green spaces, such as Christ Church Meadow and University Parks.
Anthony Trollope wrote 'Oxford is the most dangerous place to which a young man can be sent'. Well do not worry, we have conducted a thorough risk assessment of our Oxford Treasure Hunt and it poses no danger at all. Trollope was, of course, talking about the danger of education and that really is a feature of this lovely university city. That is why it is a great location for this sort of event.
