Norham Road is one of the most sought after side roads in the heart of the North Oxford Victorian Conservation Area, close to the city centre, North Parade and the University Parks. Norham Manor is arguably the most highly desirable part of historic North Oxford, conveniently located for the Oxford schools and colleges. North Parade is a charming small parade of shops and restaurants and Summertown, about a mile north of the property provides a further range of shops including a Marks & Spencers Food Hall, all major banks, public library and leisure centre. The Esporta Sports Centre is about a mile and a quarter from the property. Within the city centre and coach station provide regular and frequent services to Central London. A particular feature of Norham Road is that it is within a few hundred yards of The Dragon School with the High School a little further afield.
