Oxford has been ranked as the sixth-best destination in the UK for an Autumn staycation by HomeToGo, the world’s largest search engine for holiday homes, apartments, villas and cottages. Burford in Oxfordshire was also ranked at number 20 on the list.
HomeToGo’s list of its 20 best destinations in the UK for Autumn considered everything from the average temperature and rainfall in October to the number of family-friendly attractions and restaurants.
Oxford was number six on their list and scored particularly highly for items which visitors can explore such as restaurant choices, indoor/family-friendly activities, the cobbled streets, museums, University buildings and coffee shops.
Hayley Beer-Gamage, Chief Executive of Experience Oxfordshire said, “We are delighted that both the city as well as a county location has featured in the top 20 Autumn destinations ranking. We are working hard to increase overnight stays and spread the tourism season across the year as part of our ambition for destination management across the county, so it is great to see Oxfordshire recognised as a top Autumn destination for our variety of indoor and outdoor activities. With so much to see and do, Oxfordshire is a fantastic destination for a staycation or longer trip.”
