The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Shop

The shops of Oxford provide a treasure trove of unique finds. Visitors can tell instantly this is a studious city as book stores line the streets. Keen readers can visit the original Blackwell's Bookshop, while other second-hand stores can be found across the city. Boutique and craft shops are dotted around (offering the odd bargain), while The Covered Market is a proper old-school collection of fishmongers, butchers and grocers (with a few small fashion shops too) in keeping with the rest of the city. Specialist shops, such as Scriptum and Objects of Use, are home to the weird and wonderful – from dainty quills to hand-crafted knives, delicate teapots to gorgeous leather-bound journals – you’ll find many unique souvenirs here. With plenty more independent outlets across the city, shoppers in Oxford are sure for an experience unlike any other.
