Oxford ( / ˈ ɒ k s f ər d / ) [3] [4] is a city in the South East region of England and the county town of Oxfordshire . With an estimated 2016 population of 170,350, it is the 52nd largest city in the United Kingdom, [5] [6] and one of the fastest growing and most ethnically diverse. [7] [8] The city is situated 57 miles (92 km) from London , 69 miles (111 km) from Bristol , 65 miles (105 km) from both Southampton and Birmingham and 25 miles (40 km) from Reading .

The city is known worldwide as the home of the University of Oxford , the oldest university in the English-speaking world . [9] Buildings in Oxford demonstrate notable examples of every English architectural period since the late Saxon period. Oxford is known as the "city of dreaming spires", a term coined by poet Matthew Arnold . Oxford has a broad economic base. Its industries include motor manufacturing, education, publishing and a large number of information technology and science-based businesses, some being academic offshoots.

Oxford was first settled in Saxon times and was initially known as " Oxenaforda ", meaning " Ford of the Oxen " (according to the English Place-Name Society , [10] who base their result on a passing reference in Florence of Worcester's work Chronicon ex chronicis ); fords were more common than bridges at that time. [11] It began with the establishment of a river crossing for oxen around AD 900.
