The beauty of the city architecture combined with its green open spaces makes Living in Oxford a very special location. For those not wanting to be in the centre the outlying villages of Marston and Boars Hill offer great city appeal but on a quieter scale.


The ancient university city of Oxford is both timeless and modern, its ‘dreaming spires’ and stunning college buildings attract millions of tourists to the town every year. Situated on the River Thames, the town is also famous for its rowing heritage. Oxford’s golden-stone university buildings include some of England’s most impressive architecture, notably the Bodleian Library, Sir Christopher Wren’s Sheldonian Theatre, and the Radcliffe Camera.


Central Oxford is divided up into 18 different areas. The most popular and well known are Jericho, Summertown and Headington. These three are particularly popular with families as they are close to central Oxford but offer excellent housing options.


Oxford also boasts a huge number of parks and gardens making the city a very green place to live. Visitors can discover the surprising gardens lying behind high college walls, many with sculptures by famous artists. One college has a lake, another a deer park and Christ Church has a whole meadow. There is also the Oxford Botanical Garden, which is very popular with locals and visitors.


There is a wealth of social and sporting facilities on offer and a range of theatres. Schooling options are plentiful.


Whether you’re a home owner searching for the perfect new home or a manager looking to relocate employees, we are committed to providing the best possible relocation service.


Serving the Oxford area, we take a personal and flexible approach with all our clients, using our insider knowledge to ensure you have all the information you need whilst keeping the whole process straightforward and stress free.
