Rooms include the Sir John Vanbrugh suite, whose namesake created English Baroque and designed nearby Blenheim Palace and Castle Howard. One of the more modern-themed rooms is The Classic Mini, which celebrates Oxford’s iconic British small car, manufactured at Plant Oxford in Cowley since 1959. There’s also The Wig Room, where the 18th-century residents used to have their wigs fitted before attending important occasions.?
