They found that Oxford has 11 Michelin restaurants, five five-star hotels, and one designer store (of the top 10 most luxury brands - Cartier, Rolex, Tiffany & Co, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Burberry, Valentino, Versace and Hermes) - putting it in sixth place.

Oxford Mail:

London tops the list with 628 luxury venues on offer; it is home to iconic accommodation such as The Shard's Shangri-La, The Ritz and The Savoy, and has a grand total of 156 five-star hotels, 372 Michelin-star restaurants, and 100 stores of the top designer labels.

In second place is Manchester, which offers 12 Michelin restaurants, six five-star hotels, and 11 stores selling luxe brands; although this is considerably smaller than London's numbers, it's worth noting that the city of Manchester is just 115 sq kilometres compared to London's size of 1,572 sq kilometres. 

Third in the top 10 most luxurious cities in the UK is Birmingham, which is famed for being one of the only cities outside of London to have a Selfridges store (alongside Manchester) and it also boasts 15 Michelin recognised places for guests to dine.
