Panoramas from Oxford

Panoramic Earth launches a new map of Oxford to which is linked nearly 50 fully 30 panoramas taken around this historic city, one of the most visited cities outside London in the UK. Alongside each panorama is some local and travel information forming a virtual tour of the sights and attractions in Oxford.

Take a walk up the church spire of the University Church of St Mary the Virgin to get a panoramic view over the famous Radcliffe Cinema and All Souls College .
