About Stoke On Trent
The Staffordshire city of Stoke-on-Trent (or just Stoke) lies to the north of Birmingham and a short distance to the west of the Peak District National Park. Stoke's main theatre is the Regent Theatre which is in Hanley, a suburb of Stoke, and is complimented by the Victoria Hall, the New Vic Theatre, the Victorian Kings Hall and the Queens Theatre.
Stoke is often referred to as The Potteries due to its association with pottery which began in the 17th century. The city has claimed the title of World Capital of Ceramics. The city has many attractions including museums, factory tours, and over 25 pottery factory shops. The nearby Trentham Estate has Italian Gardens, a shopping village, Monkey Forest and a lake which is one mile long.
The site of an old colliery and other reclaimed land is being planted as the Central Forest Park. Stoke was the site of the first National Garden Festival in 1985; the site was subsequently developed into the Festival Park, a business area where some 3,000 jobs have been created.
Lying on the West Coast Main Line, stoke has excellent rail links both locally and nationally with journey times to London of around one hour and thirty minutes.
Located in the county of Oxfordshire, the city of Oxford is roughly 50 miles to the west of London. The city is known throughout the world as home to the historic Oxford University, founded in the 12th century, which is the oldest university in the United Kingdom. Oxford's famous "Dreaming Spires" refer to the medieval churches and colleges that dominate the bustling modern town in all their Gothic splendour. Picturesque architecture and a vibrant modern life (driven by students, light industry and technology) set in the rolling countryside of Oxfordshire make this a great destination.
Oxford city centre is very compact and easily walkable with many areas of the city centre pedestrianised. All major tourist sights are well-signposted. The narrow streets of the city centre are pedestrian-friendly, difficult for cars and full of beautiful buildings that will draw your attention upwards.
The preferred mode of transport for the university student is the bicycle and like Amsterdam, Copenhagen or Beijing, there are hundreds of them. Most trains into Oxford allow bicycles to be carried for free. Fortunately, there are cycle lanes on virtually ever street near the centre; however, you will sometimes be sharing the road with other motorists.
