Weather in Oxford

Oxford is a year-round destination, and the main attractions tend to be open in all seasons. The nature of summer tourism means that visitor numbers are at their highest in June, July and August, but if you have the choice, you may want to visit at another time – the spires and courtyards (and pubs) of the city have a particular allure on fresh winter days, for example. And it's probably wise to pack an umbrella, no matter when you come.
