Oxford is a British university city located in the county of Oxfordshire, in England, and is the headquarters of the University of Oxford, the oldest university in the Anglophone world. It corresponds to the location of the Carfax Tower, which is considered the center of the city.
It is known as "the city of dreamlike spiers", an expression coined by Matthew Arnold to describe the harmony in the architecture of university buildings. The occasional tense relationship between "the people and the academy", which in 1355 led to a revolt with several dead university students, has always been a matter of great interest. Unlike its great rival, Cambridge, Oxford is an industrial city, primarily associated with the automotive industry in the Cowley suburb.

Beaumont Palace (in English: Beaumont Palace) ?, in Oxford, was an old royal palace today completely disappeared built by Henry I about 1130 to own a royal palace near the royal hunting lodge in Woodstock (which is now part of the Blenheim Palace Park). On Beaumont Street in Oxford, it is marked on a stone set in a pillar on the north side of it, near Walton Street, which bears the following inscription: Near this place stood the house of the king in which the king Ricardo I was born on September 8, 1157. The "House of the King" was the rank of the palace that contained the king's lodgings.
When Edward II fought at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314, he declared to have invoked the Virgin Mary and promised to found a monastery for the Carmelites in order to escape safely. In the fulfillment of that vote, he transferred the palace of Beaumont to the Carmelites in 1318. When this religious order was dispersed in the Protestant Reformation, most of the building was dismantled and the stone was reused in the Church of Christ in Oxford and at the University of San Juan in the same city. The last remains of the Beaumont Palace were removed on the Beaumont street layout in the 1820s.

Christ Church (Oxford)
The Christ Church (in Latin: Ædes Christi, the temple or the house of Christ, and sometimes known as The House), is one of the largest colleges that constitute the University of Oxford in England. In addition to being a college, the Christ Church is the cathedral church of the Diocese of Oxford, called Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford. The cathedral has a famous choir of men and boys, and is one of Oxford's main choral foundations. It was founded as the Monastery of St. Frideswide (Santa Fredesvinda), Oxford; House of Augustinian monks, but was evicted by Henry VIII of England, during the Dissolution of the monasteries.
Christ Church has traditionally been seen as the most aristocratic college in Oxford. He has produced thirteen Prime Ministers (the two most recent are Anthony Eden from 1955 to 1957; and Sir Alec Douglas-Home from 1963 to 1964), which is more than any other college in Cambridge or Oxford (and only two of the total number of who have left Cambridge: 15). However, today the proportion of students from public and private schools is fairly even, which is typical of most Oxford colleges.
The college is the site of Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited novels, as well as Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. More recently it has been used to shoot the Harry Potter films and the adaptation of the novel by Philip Pullman Northern Lights (released in cinemas with the American title The Golden Compass). Different architectural features of the college have been imitated in other buildings, including the National University of Ireland, Galway, which reproduces the Tom Quad. The University of Chicago and Cornell University that both have reproductions of the Christ Church dining room.
In July 2007, the college had an estimated budget of 250 million pounds.

Merton College is one of the colleges that constitute the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. Its foundation can be dated in the 1260s, when Walter de Merton, secretary of Henry III of England and later of Edward I of England, established the first statutes for a new independent academic institution and established budgets to support it. One of the fundamental characteristics of the De Merton Foundation was that this college was going to govern itself and that the budgets were going to be created directly by the director and the professors and members of the college.
In 1274, when De Merton left the royal service and made final revisions to the statutes of the college, the community was consolidated at its current location southwest of Oxford, and a building construction program soon began. The hall, the chapel and the rest of the main courtyard were completed before the end of the 13th century, but except in the chapel, since then many modifications have been made to the buildings. For most visitors, the college and buildings are synonymous, but the history of the college is much deeper if we look separately at the history of the academic institution and the buildings and the place it has occupied for 750 years. Today, Merton College is in very good financial health, having an estimated budget of £ 142 million in 2006.

Magdalen College (Oxford)
Magdalen College / ˈmɔːdlɨn / is one of the colleges that constitute the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. In 2006 it had an estimated budget of 153 million pounds sterling.
Magdalen College was founded as Magdalen Hall in 1448 by William de Waynflete, Bishop of Winchester. It became Magdalene College in 1458. The statutes of the foundation included provisions for a choral foundation of men and boys (a tradition that it remains today).
Seen by some as the prettiest college among the Oxford or Cambridge colleges, the Magdalen is one of the most visited. It rises next to the Cherwell River and within its grounds there is a park with deer and the Addison’s Walk (Addison Road). The Magdalen College School is also nearby. The great Magdalen Tower is one of Oxford's most famous buildings, and it is a tradition for the college choir to sing from the top of the tower on May Morning. The current president of the college, Professor David Clary, was previously a professor and department head at Magdalene College, Cambridge.
