One of the best parts about living in Oxford is being able to see Port Meadow in all kinds of light. It's ancient and dates back as far as 2000 BC. If you are lucky enough you 'll see it in a mist as inspired the great painter, Turner. You'll cross it to get to the Perch Pub in Binsey... More

The cows, the couples, the buttercups - this is a great place to bring a picnic blanket and chill out. Great on a warm and sunny day!

Glorious walking country, right at your door in Oxford, between the river and canal system, with ducks and geese, horses and cows in the meadows, sailing club, kayaks in the water...

The Thames runs alongside Port Meadow and is easily accessed from the city. There are often horses to be seen or you can walk the towpath back into Oxford
