Just a stone’s throw away from London sits the scenic university city of Oxford. This postcard-like destination is most known for its billowing spires, museums and beautiful Harry Potter- esque architecture. Cycling is perhaps the best way to explore this remarkable city, so why not book a bike for the day? To top off your visit there, enjoy an afternoon tea in one of the many pretty traditional tea shops next to the river.
