From sharks to hovercrafts, beers to bridges, there are plenty of things to do in Oxford to keep you all occupied on the groom’s big weekend away.

Yes, this is the main man’s big send-off into marital life, you can’t afford for a single second of his celebration to be boring.

So, let’s drop kick monotony into the stratosphere with 11 awesome ideas for you guys to tick off on your trip to this top-tier city!

Headington Shark

If you’ve never heard of the Headington Shark, you need to get your head out of the roof. Located on the east side of the city, this ‘normal’ row of terraced housing has a rather interesting quirk – a 25-foot shark smashing through a rooftop.

Well, if you’re going to get a squad photo, you may as well make it impressive!
