It's just 20 miles (about a 45 minute drive) to this medieval city of architectural treasures, with its famous colleges, museums, and libraries (and markets, shops and restaurants!). We recommend the park and ride system as there were not many medieval multistorey car parks! But if you do drive into the city, head to the Westgate Shopping Centre car park.
