Although there is no clear date of the foundation of Oxford it is believed to have formed at the conjunction of the river Thames and the Cherwell, a ford located near Folly Bridge provided a safe crossing for oxen and the settlement grew from there. The city is famous for its beautiful university buildings, historic museums and has one of the largest hospital teaching & research trusts in the UK. Recreational pursuit includes punting and rowing on the waterways and the annual boat race between Oxford & Cambridge.
