Oxford is a beautiful blend of ancient and modern so check out the best places to see, stay and eat on a romantic weekend break with www.coolplaces.co.uk
Bath Place Hotel
4 Bath Place Holywell Street Oxford OX1 3SU
Full of character, this is a relatively cheap option but with four posters and creaky stairs - and a perfect location.
Old Bank Hotel
92 High St Oxford OX1 4BJ
This beautiful Georgian building has lovely, individually furnished bedrooms, some of which have window seats and marble bathrooms. A great restaurant, too.
An ex-prison, but also a modern and funky addition to the effortlessly smooth Malmaison group. All rooms boast prefer the subtle lighting, power showers and ultra-comfy beds typical of the chain, so why not opt for a naughty 'House of Correction' double.
50 Bardwell Road Oxford OX2 6ST
Great food that you can enjoy on a lovely riverside terrace
61 Banbury Road Oxford OX2 6PE
Slick restaurant housed in a glasshouse that's just about to reopen after a major refurbishment, with a lovely outdoor terrace surrounded by topiary and trees.
Mill Lane Old Marston Oxford OX3 0PZ
Nothing special as a pub, apart from its waterside location, but what could be more romantic than the traditional way to get here - by punt?
Rose Lane Oxford OX1 4AZ
The oldest botanical garden in the country, and a lovely spot that was the scene of a poignant episode in Philip Pullman's 'His Dark Materials' trilogy.
High Street OX1 4AU
One of Oxford's most beautiful accessible colleges, and home to the lovely riverside Addison's Walk, and a famous herd of deer.
Rousham House & Garden
Rousham Bicester Oxfordshire OX25 4QU
Only 20 minutes from the city centre, this Elizabethan manor and garden has no shop, no tearoom and no children under 15 are allowed, making it one of Britain's most gloriously untouched treasures.
Folly Bridge Oxford
Everyone goes punting, but Salter's Steamers give you all the fun and romance of the river - without the danger of falling in.
