About Oxford

Oxford has been around since at least 900 AD. Located in the south of England, Oxford is easily reached from London, thanks to excellent rail links between the capital and the college town. Partly due to the presence of the University, Oxford has become one of the most culturally diverse small cities in the country.

The University of Oxford is first mentioned in records from the 12th century. The oldest colleges date back to this period, and some are still in use today. The growing prestige of the University fueled the expansion of the town through the centuries that followed. To this day, the city of Oxford is almost synonymous with its famous university.

Besides the ancient and modern colleges, Oxford has numerous parks, serene green spaces, and fascinating museums. From the internationally renowned Ashmolean Museum to the famous Oxford Castle and Prison, the city has plenty of magnificent sights that will keep you busy.

Top things to do in Oxford

The many colleges that make up Oxford University are some of the city’s biggest tourist attractions. These ancient buildings have been the alma mater of some of history’s greatest minds, and they continue to foster future leaders today. For many visitors, the colleges are the main reason to visit Oxford and its dreaming spires.

Take in the atmosphere of learning at the Bodleian Library, one of the oldest libraries in Europe, or get out on the water with a punting trip on the river Cherwell. This quintessentially Oxford pastime is how generations of students have taken a break from studies, and it's the perfect way to enjoy a summer day on the peaceful river. The boats are narrow, so you can’t bring large bags with you on the river. Our luggage storage services can keep your items safe, giving you peace of mind to enjoy your time on the water.

Attractions and activities in Oxford

Oxford Castle

Travel back in time at Oxford's Norman Castle. First founded in 1071, the castle changed hands numerous times in the centuries that followed. Perhaps its most notorious use dates back to 1785, when the castle became a prison. It remained part of the prison system until 1996. Now, guided tours explain the complex history of the site and illuminate the lives of the inmates here. 

Oxford Castle bag policy

Luggage isn’t allowed throughout the site, so visitors must store it in the storage locker in the gift shop. Also, prams and pushchairs don’t fit through the museum doors and they have to be left in the reception area. With Bounce, you don’t have to worry about the size of your items. Unlike luggage lockers, our highly-rated store partners allow you to leave luggage, trolleys, prams, or anything you can’t bring inside the museum.

Pitt Rivers Museum

Explore the world without leaving the city at the Pitt Rivers Museum. During the heyday of the British Empire, explorers and anthropologists educated at Oxford set out to navigate the world and sent many of their most interesting finds back to the college. The Pitt Rivers Museum contains over 500,000 fascinating items, including totem poles, shrunken heads, funeral masks, and other precious cultural artifacts.

Pitt Rivers Museum bag policy

The museum allows backpacks and other luggage inside but there’s always the question of availability. You'll be doing plenty of walking, so make sure you don't bring more bags than you need. Bounce has left luggage storage facilities conveniently located close to attractions like the Pitt Rivers Museum. It’s easy to find a secure storage location with opening hours that match your needs.

The palace and its expansive gardens make a great country excursion not far from Oxford.

Blenheim Palace bag policy

Many tourist spots in the UK have restrictions on what you can bring in and the Blenheim Palace is not an exception.

With storage points in convenient locations throughout the city and an amazing customer service team, storing luggage with us is easy and convenient.
