Cornucopia’s travel guide

Oxford


An effortless 90-minute bus-ride from the heart of London, Oxford is one of the last bastions of Turkish studies in the United Kingdom, not to mention Ottoman and Byzantine studies. The city's Classical cluster of dreaming spires, such as the Radcliffe Camera's (below), is an open-air museum of ancient colleges. Here, too, is the Ashmolean Museum with the Arundel Marbles, while Magdalen College has a collection of Kütahya pottery, described by John Carswell in Cornucopia 46. Radcliffe Camera (2005)

Getting there

From London, a bus called the Oxford Tube runs every few minutes from Victoria Station and Hyde Park Corner, stopping in Notting Hill Gate. Fast trains from Paddington take an hour.
