Canteen staff were just rude and I would not go there for a coffee again.
They had no angers and a permanent attitude problem

The town of Oxford is a must see stop while in the UK. A lot of history. We travelled there with Evan Evans Tours. Highly recommended

This is the biggest library in the area and is centrally located in Oxford City Centre (by the old Westgate centre).
As well as books for just about everything including a vast selection of travel guides it houses local information, computers and photocopies.
Only problem with this library is it does get very busy and can have a long wait for computers and a long wait at the desk (for particularly unfriendly staff)

This Central Library would be the first place for any tourist to visit. A vast amount of pamphlets and books on Oxford; computers to look up any more information, including extensive Family History records. The staff are extremely helpful. the reading rooms are light and airy and there is lift access. You can get a temporary borrower's card and various music media are available. You can even play a keyboard and some instruments (with headphones).
Opening hours are 9-7 daily except Friday and Saturday when it is 9-5.30. A gem of a place.
