Oxford is known worldwide as the home of the University of Oxford, the oldest university in the English-speaking world.Buildings in Oxford demonstrate notable examples of every English architectural period since the late Saxon period. Oxford is known as the "city of dreaming spires", a term coined by poet Matthew Arnold. Oxford has a broad economic base. Its industries include motor manufacturing, education, publishing and many information technology and science-based businesses, some being academic offshoots.
Oxford Town Hall is a Grade II* listed building, opened by the then Prince of Wales in 1897 and located in St Aldate's Street the heart of Oxford, England. It is used a venue for meetings and events. It is also home to the Museum of Oxford and the administrative base of Oxford City Council where important decisions about the city are made.
