O: Opt for Oxford

If London is too busy for you, or you’re looking for a more intimate romantic escape, opt for Oxford instead. Only an hour outside of London by train, Oxford is the perfect romantic alternative for couples of all ages. Dubbed “The City of Dreaming Spires”, its ancient cobble-street labyrinth, chiming cathedrals and romantic charms will leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside this winter.
