I would basically be flipping a coin...

But Oxford?

And as for the subtle clue, not really sure. That circular thing is either a clock or the Oxford emblem.... ?

Put me out of my misery!

Ok ...

The winner is jonathan85 however the reason is because Oxford is "The City of Dreaming Spires" :)

The photo is a picture of one of the University Colleges ... can anyone work out which one?

Nicholas Hawksmoor

I believe that this man was the architect :)

"Also unlike his peers, Hawksmoor made his name with church and university architecture rather than building houses for the wealthy. All Soul's College, Oxford, (1716-35) is probably his finest University work. There he built the exterior of a new Hall and Library in Gothic style to blend harmoniously with the surviving medieval buildings, but the interiors were pure classical form. Perhaps it was Hawksmoor's graceful pinnacled towers that prompted the "dreaming spires" poem?"
