The bus stops in Oxford at St Giles in the City Centre, which is within a 15 minute walk of the Westgate Shopping Centre ,  Oxford Castle,  Museum of Natural History and University of Oxford - so there's plenty to do and see.  For some inspiration on great days out in Oxford, why not check out the Visit Oxford website.
