My husband and I spent over an hour wandering around the trail around Christ Church Meadow, and it was wonderfully relaxing. After several days of the hustle and bustle of London, we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful or relaxing break. The scenery was lovely from start to finish, and with students lounging about at every turn, it's easy... More

A classic, not to be missed, view of the college from the meadow. Wander slowly and take in the history. You can also walk down the river and watch the rowers practising.

You feel as if you are miles from the city but in fact you are only half a mile from carfax and the centre. I've walked here for over 40years and never get fed up with the views of the city, river and wonderful daffodils in the spring. One of my favourites of all.

Very characteristic Oxford views, both forwards across The Meadows and back over the Oxford skyline.

Especially when the weather starts to warm up - flowers, greenery, meadow, all against a backdrop of dreaming spires & towers. Also, nice walk around - you can have little picnics in here too.

Otherwise a delightful place to stroll out with the family. Be sure to go down to the boat houses and try to catch a glimpse of some of the rowers going past. Peeking through the bars at the college students playing croquet is also a giggle.

I have always loved Oxford but sometimes when the students and all the tourists are out and about it can feel a bit hemmed in on the streets. Christ Church Meadow is not an undiscovered spot but it is clear enough that you'll find a nice open walk down to the Isis, or an area to sit and relax on... More

A nice relaxing scenery for spending some time to empty your mind and recharge your batteries. Grab a coffee and take a walk along the river!

There is not much to see, just meadows. If you have the time to spend and want to relax, just take a walk till the river is reached.
