We have been blessed with great weather, since the schools went back at the end of August. Shame. I've enjoyed walking through Port Meadow over the past few weeks. I'm sure the experience will change now that the warmth is finally fading. Oxford is so lucky to have all these beautiful outside spaces so close to the city centre.

We walked to Oxford from the Oxford Hotel through Port Meadow. The journey itself turned out to be an unexpected highlight. Apparently it is a very ancient place and it feels special. We saw a cormorant and geese by the river. It is strange to be somewhere so peaceful so close to a city. Had a cup of tea at... More

This is the creme de la creme of nature Oxford has to offer. Every year professional photographers come to video and photograph the migrating birds. Oxford university rowing team train on the river and you can watch them sculling up and down. People fish in season on the river bank and you see people on their barges and single person... More

When the weather is right, Port Meadow is the best place to be in Oxford, cycling, walking, swimming or having a picknick.

We were with friends today who had a dog and therefore we could not do our usual walk around the gardens of Worcester college so we walked through the interesting roads of Jericho and along the canal away from town until we reached the Meadow which we walked across to the River Thames and enjoyed a lovely walk back into...

Relaxing ..minutes from the centre of Oxford but feels like middle of a countryside..walk along the River with dog or meander with friend or children ..lovely afternoon strolls to be had..wave to Longboats going up and down thro the dock near the Trout River Restaurant.Pretty idyllic.

So utterly magical that I wouldn't have been too surprised if Mole, Toad, Ratty, & Badger happened by. A Sunday afternoon stroll along the river was the absolute highlight of my entire vacation. Sometimes the best things in life really are free.

As a major tourist destination in England Oxford never fails to deliver, but too many people see just colleges and architecture and miss some of the wonderful open spaces that Oxford has to offer, and this is one of them and possibly the best. It is great for walking, running or just wandering and relaxing away from the hubbub of... More
