About this book

 

Now in its seventh edition, The Pocket Guide to Oxford covers the architecture, history, and principal attractions of the city. There is essential information on Oxford University’s colleges and buildings, punting, bicycles, museums, literary Oxford, a Dodo Walk, and maps to help you find your way around. Our friend the Oxford Dodo also adds his own thoughts along the way.

 

The guidebook has been illustrated by the authors, the Victorian artist Orlando Jewitt, and includes engravings from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. Carroll was a don at Christ Church—the first of the colleges we recommend you visit. The guidebook has been typeset in fonts designed by one of the authors.
