Oxford Architecture Tour: Exclusive Guided Walks
3 May 2016 – new architecture photos from Donald Short:
22 Jan 2016 – new architectural photos from Donald Short, a mix of Modern, Gothic and Classical Oxford architecture:
The Hayward and De Breyne building, Keble College by ABK in 1973-77 (ref. http://www.c20society.org.uk/100-buildings/1980-keble-college-extension-oxford/):
Saint Antony’s College building design by Zaha Hadid Architects:
The Clarendon Building, early 18th-century neoclassical building of the University of Oxford, 1711-15, Grade I listed building:
The city is in the news again today with the student campaign to remove the statue of Cecil Rhodes: he attended Oxford in the 1870s and his statue stands prominently on the outside of Oriel College.
Our tours in the city significantly outpace our city walks in sister city Cambridge, which is a surprise as the latter has a feast of architecture, though I’m slightly biased having lived in Cambdirge and with many famil members having attended university there!
Our Oxford guided tours are all tailored to suit each booking, we do not allow for bookings to be joined. Our guided tours in South East England are all exclusive to each client.
Should you be planning an office trip, a conference, or university trip in Oxfordshire please contact us and we would be happy to take your booking.
Oxford – Introduction
Oxford is located in the south of England, about an hour’s drive northwest from London.
The most important new Oxford building from the recent decades is the Ashmolean Museum by Rick Mather Architects.
Key recent buildings that are well worth a visit include St. John’s College Building by MJP Architects, St Antony’s College Gateway Building by Bennetts Associates and Somerville College Accommodation by Niall McLaughlin Architects. Saint Antony’s College Middle East Centre by Zaha Hadid Architects will be an attraction soon (not complete at time of writing).
Significant 20th Century Oxford architecture can be found in The Florey Building at Queen’s College by James Stirling and the St Catherine’s College buildings by Danish architect Arne Jacobsen.
Other key architects with work in the city include Powell & Moya Architects – at Brasenose College, and Christ Church College and Giles Gilbert Scott – the New Bodleian Library. All these feature on our Oxford Architecture Tours.
This historic English city is famous for its old and distinguished University. Like its twin city Cambridge it has much brilliant historic and contemporary architecture. Oxford is set at the junction of the River Isis and Thames.
