    I do think Oxford seems globally more famous than Cambridge. For example, it seems much more "famous" in America than Cambridge is.

    Within the UK, I think they'd be considered equal though.

    Nothing to do with the quality of the universities but I think it's pretty clear that Oxford is more famous.

    I think the "University of Oxbridge" isn't too far behind.

    One of my [large number of] morally dubious ideas for making money is to buy a shed near Uxbridge and sell distance learning qualifications...

    Oxford is where world leaders and politicians go.
    In my country (Singapore), our first Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew (and his wife) had studied Law in Cambridge, and our current Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong was a Senior Wrangler from Trinity College. Somehow Cambridge is more famous/popular here.
