From UNESCO world-heritage palaces and ancient libraries, to high tech venues & cutting-edge research, Oxfordshire is home to a diverse range of venues suitable for everything from biotech conventions, to luxury Incentive breaks, to corporate retreats from nearby London.
Surrounding the historic ‘City of Dreaming Spires’ and world-leading University of Oxford are the beautiful stone villages of the Cotswolds, bucolic English market towns on the banks of the Thames, and Britain’s greatest palace – all within a little over an hour of London by train, bus or car.
