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.

Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
