This original branch of the famous chain of booksellers boasts a cavernous cellar with enough interesting and intellectual tomes to rival many a university library. Specialising in education and business, they also have an impressive travel, children’s and fiction section, and have a generous selection of maps (perfect for walkers wanting to explore the surrounding countryside). With over 130 years' of experience, Blackwell's is one of the finest bookstores in the country and during term-time it’s worth a visit just to eavesdrop on the students. The shop also runs specialist literary walking tours of Oxford – showcasing the favourite haunts of the city’s most famous writers – costing around £7. For those looking to stay in Oxford for a longer period of time, the bookshop also hosts reading clubs, poetry evenings and a selection of author events.
