Oxford City Guide was started by Alissa, an American who moved to Oxford a few years ago with her family (from Australia, but that's another story...). Frustrated by the lack of practical information she found before moving here, and then again when searching for things to do when visitors came, she decided to fill the information void herself and make it easy for all the tourists and new students who come to Oxford each year.
After working on the guide for a while, she realised that it was being used by as many locals as visitors, so she added local listings, like cinema showtimes and a weekly gig guide for checking out live music.
Since then a group of entrepreneurial students now work to advance the reach of Oxford City Guide, while staying true to it's original concept
It's our hope that Oxford City Guide is considered a full service website - that for locals or visitors, whoever uses the guide will find what it is they are looking for, and then keep coming back!
We think that Oxford is an amazing city and this website was born out of love for it, and everything it has to offer.
We hope you enjoy the site and find whatever it is you are looking for!
