Fancy a beer or three on your Oxford stag do son?
A small fact that you may not be aware of is that Oxford has a very long history of brewing. In the 16th century, brewing was the most popular trade in the city and several of the University collages had their very own mini breweries. By 1874 there were 9 breweries in the growing city and a further 13 brewers shipping in beer from elsewhere - these guys were getting serious. The biggest and oldest brewery belonged to the Morrell Brewing Company spanning 2 centuries from 1782 to 1998. The iconic brewery was designed by local architect Harry Drinkwater (we're not sure he kept to his names sake!) and has a very distinctive yellow brick chimney. Sadly, the brewery is no longer in use and has now been converted into luxury apartments however Drinkwater also designed many other pubs for the Morrells. Why not visit The Cape of Good Hope situated on Iffley Road during your Oxford stag weekend, where none other than Roger Bannister ran the very first 4 minute mile. We've all heard of gasping for a pint but ol' Rog was clearly parched.
Another of Oxford's big industries is that of the motoring world and it was once an important hub of motor manufacturing. Morris Motors established their business there in 1910 where the infamous Morris Minor was first built in 1928. The world famous, mini coopers were also produced in Oxford and still are to this day. These days however, you will find higher octane vehicles to feed your appetite, such as Honda pilots and Off Road Karts. Get to grips with these powerful machines in a destination that is steeped in motoring history.
How do I get all my stags to this magical land?
We hear you scream. Handily, Oxford is slap bang in middle of the country and is easily accessible by a number of means of transport.
- Firstly, there are regularly direct buses travelling from Manchester and London including airline services from Gatwick, Heathrow and Luton.
- If you fancy relaxing while travelling why not grab the train? The Great Western Railway travels from Paddington, through Oxford and up to Birmingham, Manchester and even Edinburgh all directly.
- If the guys a bit more strapped for cash you could all bundle in the back of your cars and head off in the direction of the M40 that runs right through the centre of the country - perfect!
