The climate of Oxford (England)
Oxford is one of the two most famous university towns in England. The
university has been in existence since the Middle Ages and still is
one of the best universities in the world. The old university
buildings, churches, theatres and libraries can still be visited. Some
of them still are in use. Among the beautiful buildings are: Bodleian
library, the Sheldonian Theater and Christ Church college. The latter
was the source of inspiration for Harry Potter film sets. Some scenes
were even filmed here. A walk through Oxford can be highly
recommended. You can also go downstream the river by punt, a boat with
a flat bottom. Oxford can be very entertaining during the evenings.
Because of the large numbers of students there is always something to
do in one of the many pubs.
Oxford has a sea climate. Where temperatures are concerned summer and
winter are quite alike. During the summer temperatures are being
moderated because of the influence of the sea. In a rare case a heat
wave may occur. Just as in other places in England rain falls all year
round. However, Oxford is a little drier than other places. Because of
the influence of the sea the weather may change rapidly.
