In the city of Oxford, the Old Bank Hotel and the Old Parsonage are under the same ownership but couldn't be more different: the former has a good central Oxford address and is contemporary in design, while the latter occupies a characterful, wisteria-clad house that has been owned by University College since 1320.
Oxfordshire has a major tourist industry, especially around the historic city of Oxford, but it also boasts some pleasant historic buildings and interesting little towns and villages.
