University of Oxford Shop on the High Street
The University of Oxford Shop is located at 106 High Street, in the centre of the Dreaming Spires of Oxford. This beautiful street is home to many of the Colleges as well as some of the best shops in Oxford including Oxford University Press Bookshop and the Covered Market. We are situated opposite Brasenose College and The University's Church of St Mary the Virgin, and a very short walk away from the Radcliffe Camera and the rest of the Bodleian Library.
The building itself that the shop occupies is called Tackley's Inn (1320) and is one of the few surviving examples of a medieval academic hall. We share this building with A-Plan Insurance next door and there are students living in the quarters upstairs. Our basement has a medieval vaulted ceiling and the original steps up to the High Street are still visible although they are now blocked off. We even have half an original Grotesque!
