The historic university city of Oxford is located in the county of Oxfordshire and is roughly 35 miles to the east of Cheltenham and 30 miles to the south west of Milton Keynes. Although known for its university the economy of Oxford is also reliant on car making, publishing, science and technology, bellfounding and brewing. Several of the University's colleges had private breweries which includes Brasenose College whose brewery survived until 1889.
Oxford used to be an important port of the River Thames, although the section of the Thames that runs through Oxford is called The Isis. To accommodate commercial traffic the Oxford-Burcot Commission in the 17th century took steps to improve the navigability of the river. The Oxford Canal was constructed in the 18th century in order to connect Oxford with the Midlands. Commercial traffic has given way to recreational use of the river and canal. Oxford was the original base of Salters Steamers and there is a regular service from Folly Bridge downstream to Abingdon and beyond.
Interesting attractions in the city include the Ashmolean Museum, the Bodleian Library, Christ Church Cathedral, The Headington Shark, the Museum of History and Science and the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.
Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and has a growing reputation for its culture, style and the friendliness of its people. The city offers a mix of museums, galleries, stunning architecture, amazing shopping and a wide range of restaurants and bars. The city enjoys a year-round buzz with an arts scene that regularly produces cutting-edge productions and attracts high-profile exhibitions that led to the city being crowned European City of Culture in 1990. Glasgow was also the United Kingdom's City of Architecture and Design in 1999 and its architecture is an attraction in itself. The city centre has countless impressive Victorian structures and then there are the unique masterpieces of one of the city's most celebrated sons, the legendary architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Beyond the city you will find many special outdoor spaces, but you can also find an extraordinary variety of parks and gardens. One of Glasgow’s best-loved parks, Kelvingrove, enjoys a fine setting on the banks of the River Kelvin and defines the centre of the city’s bohemian West End. Glasgow Green is the city’s oldest park and its history can be traced back to 1450. Queen’s Park in Glasgow offers stunning views on a clear day out to the Campsie Fells and Ben Lomond. It was also the site of the 16th century Battle of Langside.
