A weekend in October 2001, not that you'd guess this from the weather. Basically, we liked the place. It is, along with Oxford, one of the quintessential English university towns - there are colleges here that Edward II started off in the 1300's. All in all, we preferred it to Oxford - it seems to have more space, and the river running up the back of the colleges links them together nicely. They also seem to be more accessible although as it was exam time when we were in Oxford, that might just have been a question of timing.
