The grounds of Christ Church are absolutely beautiful. It is September and all the flowers are still in bloom. There were a few student cleaning the walkways that lead to the meadow. What a wonderful place to spend your college years!

We walked by this with our guide who was in a hurry to get to the Church before it closed for the day. This is a very scenic and relaxing spot, perfect for taking photos, taking a leisure stroll or sitting and having an afternoon snack.

This place is amazing, just minutes from the city centre and like being in the countryside. Fields with cattle in them. The river next to it. A lovely tranquil place, great for a lunch time walk when working in Oxford.

….. and rest your weary legs if you have been walking all day!!! You may catch a cricket match or other games, or simply others gathered for a picnic. a little oasis amidst the bustle of Oxford town.

Christ Church Meadow is blissful. Wide open space for a walk and to soak up some sunshine if you are lucky. Well kept gardens and picture perfect with the spires and towers of Christchurch and downtown Oxford as the backdrop. Don't miss this iconic feature of Oxford.

Open space right in the city centre! Nice to see the river and people watch and look at the cows and the beauty that is Christ Church. A good walk and nice to get away from the hustle and bustle.

Absolutely beautiful. The grounds were well kept, and luckily for us in the sunshine, a great place to walk around.
