The Heart of England stretches across the south central area of the country from the Cotswold's in the west to the flat fens of East Anglia. Along the way, it takes in some of the prettiest countryside in England, a patchwork of green fields and small villages, though nowadays the scene is punctuated with commuter towns that serve the sprawl of Greater London. A good central location from which to explore the Heart of England is the university town of Oxford. The history of Oxford is twined around the growth of Oxford University, though Oxford citizens had what could be described as a love/hate relationship with the students who have flocked to the Oxford University colleges since at least the 12th century. Christ Church College, Blenheim Palace, Windsor Castle from Windsor Great Park and Shakespeare's birthplace is some of the most important sites. Visitors have a variety of lodging options to choose from including Heart of England home rentals, Heart of England holiday rentals or Heart of England vacation rentals.
