Oxfordshire sits within the beautiful Cotswold Hills, and driving through the county, visitors are awe-struck by the golden-coloured stones of the traditional houses. The county is historically famous for the production of wool, the sale of which made the county rich. The county town is Oxford, world famous for its historical university, a must-see for all visitors to the UK. The college buildings are gloriously sculpted with towers, spires and domes. The students bring vibrancy and fun to the town, and it is a joy to go shopping there. The river Thames meanders through the county, as does the Cherwell, and many visitors to the county like to row from the Thames source to the sea.
