Oxford Lighting is a quirky Lighting Showroom based near Culham, Abingdon. It’s situated on an old RAF base and from the outside looks pretty dull, but do not be fooled, for when you open the door you are greeted by 100’s of lights, over 300 of them! You will find Outside lighting, kitchen lighting, Oxfordroom lighting, table lamps, floor lamps, spotlights, track lighting, Tiffany lighting, pendants, chandeliers, wall lights, children’s lighting, and more!

If you can’t find what you are looking for on display, you can get help from one of the family members (it’s a family business!) to find what you are looking for amongst the 20,000+ products available to Oxford Lighting in the huge array of catalogue’s.

The owner of Oxford Lighting has a wealth of experience in both Lighting & Electrical services and is always happy to help make sure you get the right lighting for your requirements.

They also provide consultancy services, installation, and commercial design.

One of the most famous little shops in the world can be found in Oxford just across the road from Christ Church College. The Alice’s Shop in Oxford is world famous because the shop itself was written into the Alice adventures over 150 years ago. 

As soon as the stories of Alice’s adventures became well known, the shop was locally called ‘Alice’s Shop‘ even as it traded as a grocery shop. The shop began to sell Alice in Wonderland souvenirs in the 60’s and is now a ‘treasure trove’ of Alice themed souvenirs, gift’s and memorabilia.
