“Carfax Tower has the second best view in Oxford. At the top, you’ll see the historic spires and domes of the city in the background with the shopping streets in the foreground. Carfax Tower is all the remains of an historic Oxford church, St Martin’s. Inside the tower there are still church bells and on the outside there’s a fancy clock with figures that chime the quarter hour. ”

“The Freud café is housed in the former St Paul's Church, a Greek Revival building designed in 1836 by Henry Jones Underwood. The church was inspired by an outbreak of cholera in the area in 1831. The building has an imposing portico with Ionic columns. The architect Edward George Bruton added the apse in 1853 and Frederick Charles Eden remodelled the interior in 1908. In the 20th century, the building became a redundant church and was closed in the late 1960s. After deconsecration, the building was bought by the Oxford Area Arts Council and used as a theatre and arts centre venue. In 1988, the building was acquired by Secession Ltd to prevent the building's demolition. Freud opened as a café/bar in the same year. The cafe was created by David Freud, a graduate of the Courtauld Institute of Art, who has an interest in buildings and their interaction with people. There is sometimes live music such as jazz or blues. The name is often written in Roman-style capital lettering as "FREVD", for example above the main entrance door.”
