1. Try a punting ride

Go on a punting trip!

Take a trip on a punt, a traditional flat bottomed boat used for navigating shallow rivers. Float past the home where Lewis Carroll wrote Alice in Wonderland while observing Oxford’s beautiful countryside. Hire a boat with your friends, or go with EC Oxford on a school-organised trip.

2. Enjoy a pub night

Go out on a pub night!

Head to the local pub with your EC friends for some traditional English-style fun. Pubs are the typical spot for friends to gather and have a few drinks together. While you can head to the pub whenever you desire, the school also arranges frequent trips where you can sit for a few pints with your friends.

3. See a theatre show

Midsummer Night's Dream at Creation Theatre Company

The Creation Theatre Company regularly puts on interactive performances in an outdoor theatre, providing an excellent opportunity for you to both practice your English and enjoy a fun night out.

4. Go on a day trip


Take a break from your hard work and studies to visit some of the sights around the UK. Check out the mysterious ruins at Stonehenge, the lovely Welsh coastline, or enjoy the hustle and bustle of London, all easily accessible from Oxford.
