    The busy street just ahead is called ‘Cornmarket Street’. It’s always full of tourists and students. Look to your right - do you see the medieval-looking tower on the corner? It's called the Saxon Tower and it's the oldest building in Oxford, dating from about 1050. It’s even mentioned in the Domesday Book!

    Now, just go straight across Cornmarket, and onto the street opposite. It's called St Michael's Street. Just keep walking straight down it, towards the impressive-looking church steeple at the end of the road.
