Oxford or Cambridge?

Jump to last reply

Hello! I have four days in London at the end of November (Friday through Monday). But I've been to London many times and was thinking of hopping the train to either Oxford or Cambridge for a different experience. I've read some on both towns and they seem a bit similar (and fantastic) to me. Is there a clear winner here? I am interested in seeing the university, walking the campus and getting into some of the beautiful campus buildings, if it is allowed. I also want to wander some bookstores and see where the Inklings hung out, if Oxford.

Also, how many days for this? I'll be traveling alone, so this always seem to accelerate my schedule (no lingering conversations over a beer with my traveling companion). Spending all four days in one or the other seems like a lot, but maybe I am wrong. I will have no trouble having fun in London. Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
