About Oxford

World renowned for its history, architecture and University, Oxford has a rich tradition in rowing, and you often see crews gliding through the water, their powerful strokes in perfect rhythm. But there is more to this famous city, it is surrounded by picturesque towns and villages and rolling countryside, crisscrossed by rivers and canals, waiting for you to explore. 

Farmoor Reservoir 

Just five miles from Oxford, this reservoir is one of the largest areas of water in Central England and has great conditions for sailing and windsurfing. It should be at the top of your Oxford to-do list.
