Synopsis

Oxford is known throughout the world as a great centre of history and learning, with hundreds of thousands of visitors coming every year to soak up the atmosphere of its colleges, museums, medieval streets and beautiful green spaces along the Thames and Cherwell rivers. Its pubs are very much part of that appeal, from taverns down narrow alleyways that date back hundreds of years to more contemporary hostelries that still doff their caps to tradition. Every kind of person who lives in Britain lives in Oxford and its pubs reflect that rich diversity. Follow in the footsteps of Inspectors Morse and Lewis as you mull over the events and personalities that have shaped this great city and learn the stories behind some of the most intriguing pub names in Britain, such as Far from the Madding Crowd, the Turf Tavern and Three Goats' Heads. Every pub has a tale to tell, and whether you live in Oxford or come from afar, you will find this an invaluable companion as you make your way around the 'city of dreaming spires'.
