Whether or not you regard Oxford as a good place to shop will depend on what you like looking for. If you are hoping for fashionable designer shops then you will probably be a little disappointed. However, if you want bookshops then Oxford is one of the best places to be! Blackwell’s Oxford is one of Europe’s largest bookshops and has an extraordinary range of books with a strong academic bias. The Covered Market also has a fascinating collection of shops and market stalls worth a visit.
