Simply amazing! Fell in love with that place. Even more after knowing about its history. Nature and architecture are perfectly matched to give a fairytale experience. It's a wonderful place to bring children for a picnic on a lazy summer day. <3

Full of history and a good college to know about. Considered as one of the most important colleges. The guided tour person will give the complete facts about the college like a story teller with Oxford accent!

Framed by the beautiful college buildings and the river this is a beautiful and relaxing place to escape, yet is right in the heart of the city. Definitely feels like you are walking in the footsteps of generations of Oxford's academic past.

This walk across open fields along very muddy pathways is a good way to get around the city without having to walk through the shopping areas.

Being at the south side of town, this is a perfect place to watch sunset late afternoon. You can access the meadow from Magdalen college down Rose Lane. The buildings of Christ Church and nearby Merton college turn an even warmer colour than they already are.

I seem to be in a minority here. Whilst it is marvellous that such a large expanse of meadow with glorious views of the river and the impressive Christ Church College is free to walk in the centre of a large town, its popularity is the problem. On a chilly Sunday afternoon in January, the place was heaving with tourists... More

I have visited this open area many times, most recently this week. It can flood at times, although it was fine for a visit this week. It is free, and open during most daylight hours. There is plenty to see all year round, and it is nice to escape from the busyness of the city streets.

Always a joy to take a walk through Christ Church Meadow, many happy Summers spent here during my youth. Take a walk if you have the time.
