The Centre Of Oxford

Taken from the top of Carfax Tower, which is known to be the centre of Oxford. It is where, from the top going clockwise, High Street, St Aldates, Queen Street and Cornmarket all meet. The tower is now a local tourist attraction, as you can climb it and get a very good view of the city, the charge is £2.20. If you are new to Oxford, it might be worth the climb to see Oxford from a hight.

I find the view from St Marys Church on Radcliffe Square better (I'm pretty sure it's higher too).

That is a great view!

Delightful shot. I love the colorful vehicles, too.

I'd try shooting a panorama from up there. Nice Oxford view. My eyes are drawn to the blue van, the red bus and the yellow car.

Looks very nice. Reminds me of the Cars animation. :P Good shot! Keep up the good work, lad.

I think the St Mary's view is better too, at least for visitors. But I should go up Carfax tower again, I haven't been up since 2007.
