Oxford is home to the oldest English speaking University in the world and probably the most famous place of learning to many people. It's also one of Britain's most impressive and ancient cities with astounding architecture and monumental buildings.

Apart from being a centre of scholarship, Oxford is also the location of many memorable film and TV productions. The Harry Potter films are famous world wide, but for UK television viewers, memories of the series Inspector Morse and its sequels are just as strong.

We are currently into the beta testing of the website and still have some way to go before the structure of the site is complete. We welcome your help to point out any errors or broken links during this testing stage.
