Oxford is the dream city, the celestial city, the city of dreaming spires; an architectural treasure trove in honey-coloured Cotswold stone, dedicated to love and learning. Here is the world's most famous university nestling among glorious streets, surrounded by delicious riverside walks astride the beautiful Thames and Cherwell, and bucolic countryside. And it's all captured in Ed Glinert's 111 Places in Oxford That You Shouldn't Miss.

About the author

Ed Glinert was born in Dalston, just outside London’s East End. He trained as a journalist and founded City Life, Manchester’s what’s-on and hard news magazine in 1983. In the 1990s he worked for Private Eye magazine, writing the Rotten Boroughs column about council corruption. He has also contributed to the Sunday Times, Independent and the New Statesman. He was launch production editor for Mojo, the rock ‘n’ roll magazine. Glinert has written a number of books for major publishers including The London Compendium (2003) and East End Chronicles (2005). Since 2009 he has run the highly-successful New Manchester Walks tour company. He also guides in London and Liverpool.Newcastle-born David Taylor is a professional freelance landscape photographer and writer who now lives in Northumberland. His first camera was a Kodak Instamatic. Since then he’s used every type of camera imaginable: from bulky 4x5 film cameras to pocket-sized digital compacts. David has written nearly 40 books about photography, as well as supplying images and articles to both regional and national magazines. When David is not outdoors he can be found at home with his wife, a cat, and a worryingly large number of tripods.
