Oxford questions

Jump to last reply

Hello all,
I'm posting this question on behalf of my 24 year old son who is planning a trip to Oxford during the 2nd half of March. He will be visiting a friend who is studying there. After looking through a guide book, he's come up with the following list of things to see/do:

official University and City walking tour
Bodleian Library
Oxford Museum of Natural History
Ashmolean Museum
Pitt Rivers museum
University Church of St. Mary the Virgin

Colleges
Christchurch College
Magdalen College
Merton College
All Souls College
Exeter College

other sights to see
Radcliffe Camera (covered by library or city tour?)
Bridge of Sighs (covered by city tour?)
Sheldonian Theatre (covered by city tour?)

Is he missing any essentials? Are any of those colleges and/or sights covered by the official city tour? There's not a lot of information as to what the tour actually covers, just that it's two hours and shows you the basics, so any additional information from somebody who has done the tour would be nice. Would it be reasonable and/or worthwhile to trek out to the Uffington White Horse? Finally, should three days be enough to do this?

Thanks for any help you can offer!
