Oxford is known as the ‘city of dreaming spires’ for its historic skyline and the city has something to offer everybody. Oxford University is the oldest in the English-speaking world and is home to the Bodleian Library – the second largest in Britain. Another popular attraction is the covered market which has resided permanently in Oxford’s city centre since 1774. This market has a range of food and retail stalls to explore, including some that sell the traditional Oxford Sausage. For those that enjoy both the city and the countryside, Oxford is perfect. It is relatively easy to leave the city and a favourite pastime for both locals and tourists involves picnicking and punting down the River Thames. It is therefore no surprise that Oxford is so popular and in the last year reallymoving.com has helped just under 600 people relocate to the city.
Oxford is also partly a student city and while this benefits local businesses and contributes to a thriving bar and club scene, many students can be noisy neighbours. This is one reason we highly recommend our local and trusted conveyancing solicitors as they will be able to provide you with advice on student areas, noise abatement zones and other legal advice that will prove invaluable when moving home.
Oxford has much to excite old residents and newcomers alike, from galleries and museums to markets and shopping centres, and by comparing up to four conveyancers with reallymoving.com you can be sure your move will be as cheap and stress-free as possible.
