Steeped in history and tradition, Oxford is a vibrant city that is littered with great places to buy fine food & drink, listen to music, see theatre... and buy toys! Templars Square is the city's biggest enclosed shopping centre and The Westgate Shopping Centre boasts a variety of large chain stores, some of which keep a small selection of popular toys.
The Oxford Pram Centre in Harrow Road is one of the UK's largest independent nursery shops. They stock all the major nursery brands, and offer car seat fitting as an extra service. Elsewhere in the city, there are miles of cobbled streets and alleyways that are host to many independent Oxford toy shops.
Well worth a visit are Little Wonders in St Ebbes Street and The Gameskeeper in Cowley Road. On the outskirts of Oxford, you will also find some larger retail units that are home to the likes of Mothercare and Toys 'R' Us, but you can also seek out some interesting independent toy retailers - some of which specialise in larger, outdoor items such as climbing frames and bikes.
