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.

It's great to have a walk at the meadow. Peaceful. You can see some ducks in the river at the meadow.

If the College is closed or you don't want to pay the admission price, this is a very pleasant way to at least see a great view of the buildings and architecture. We took a lovely stroll through here on a crisp sunny day. It really is wonderful to see such a large expanse of greenery in a city. Very... More

While doing my A-levels we organised picnics in the Christ Church Meadow park several times. When it's sunny the meadow is one of the best places in Oxford to take a walk. Очень классное место особенно в солнечную погоду!

If you can't afford the admission price to the College and its Cathedral, you can always get a great view of it as you walk through the Meadow area on your way from Magdalen Bridge through to St Aldate's, or vice versa of course, this avoiding the crush of the High St. You also get a picturesque little bit of...

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.
