Rated 2 out of 5 by Worcesterpearmain from Slightly disappointing design The detailed design on this mug tends to blur into a mush of yellowy brown-ness when seen at a distance, and the design doesn't take up the full space on the mug, or have a defined edge, unlike some other EB mugs with lots of detail. Every time I look at it, I think it would have looked better with some blue sky (the sun does shine in Oxford sometimes) and defined edges. Also, Oxford is a town of bicycles; the design includes lots of people, but the only bicycle depicted is on the bottom of the mug, where you can't see it! The Paris mug, which I also ordered, is more visually pleasing than this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mottrammassive from Perfect birthday gift!! I've bought this for my daughter for her 16th birthday next week. She desperately wants to go to Oxford university and is working so hard. The mug is perfect for her morning tea and great motivation to achieve her dream!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by skyedweller from A Little Bland I LOVED the Paris mug, and Oxford is another special place for us. This mug would be much more attractive with either a blue sky or green /grey/something at the bottom. Love the idea, but this and the London mug don't measure up to the other two in the series.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nicola17 from Disappointing all round This is the first time I have been disappointed with an order from EB. I did not order a seconds but the product arrived with small silver letters glazed into it. It was for a Christmas present and I had to apologise and assure the person that it was not a seconds. The bottom also appeared more worn than usual.
