Living in Oxford

Our main support office is based in Oxford at Gemini One. We are conveniently located near the centre of Oxford, but with close links to the M40.

Oxford is the 52nd largest city in the UK, with a population of approximately 160,000 and according to Wikipedia is one of the fastest growing cities and most ethnically diverse.

Famous for being the backdrop of the popular murder mystery series Inspector Morse, Oxford was also the setting for Downton Abbey - the village of Bampton doubles as the fictional village of Downton.

Oxford is located very close to the Cotswolds, which with its rolling hills, thatched roofs and stately homes makes it an enviable place to escape from the daily routine. If the city life is more your thing, Oxford itself has a strong university presence and an unrivalled nightlife and live music scene. Bicester is great for shopping with discounted designer stores as well as readily available high street shops in the town. Schools in the area are some of the best in the country, there are many to choose from including private and public schools, and of course the University is well known.

If you’re into sport; Oxford United are currently playing in league two, the Oxford v Cambridge Boat Races are highly publicised and the Cavaliers are one of the country’s most successful American Football Teams. Just three miles away from Oxford city centre lies North Oxford Golf Club, the club is set in 80 acres of parkland and makes a great getaway.
