No building in central Oxford may be constructed higher than it. It still contains a ring of six bells, these chime the quarter hours.
The Tower is all that remains of St Martin's Church (c.1122 and 1896) when the main part of the church was demolished to make more room for traffic in the area.
Good place to take pictures of the city center
It is possible to climb to the top of the tower for a good view of the Oxford skyline.
The tower is open 10am–5.30pm (Easter to October) 10am–3.30pm (October to Easter).
Tallest building in Oxford. Typical centre's meeting point.
It's £2.30 to head to the top of the tower to get some great snaps of Oxford
Ottimo inizio per un tour alla scoperta di Oxford!
