Southeast Oxford is a major residential district, with a lot of student housing. The only area that holds much visitor accommodation, however, is along Iffley Rd, where a number of fine old homes have been converted into B&Bs, often charging very reasonable rates. With abundant and generally inexpensive restaurants nearby, plentiful pubs and nightlife, and fast bus connections into the centre, basing yourself here is an attractive option. If you’ve come to Oxford by train, though, it’s a long way from the station.
