We went there in the evening when sun was setting, view of river and nature was breath taking... Ducks swimming, birds flying greenery little clouds in sky.. Words are not enough to explain the beauty of this place. A must visit place...

This is a magical place only minutes from the City Centre. It is such a contrast to the beautiful but congested City and you can feel the benefit as you gulp in the fresh air. There are other pockets of green space in Oxford and many parks but Port Meadow is a wilder environment.

The large open space, with wild horses galloping past in the early evening as you walk down the house-boats on the river is a magical moment in time.

Fantastic walks in beautiful open countryside so close to centre of Oxford. Wild ponies and horses as well as cows graze nearby. A must if you are visiting Oxford for a weekend and the weather is nice.

Lovely space for walks with dog. Shame someone has been allowed to build blocks of flats overlooking this historic part of Oxford. How did that happen?

If you have time then visit Port Meadow whilst visiting Oxford. Its such a peaceful sanctuary yet bang in the middle of suburbia! Dogs are welcome but you do need to be careful of the cattle and horses found on the meadow.

A delectable lunch at Jacob's Inn, followed by a leisurely stroll down to Port Meadow on a beautiful, warm, sunny Saturday afternoon. We walked for a good hour and a half, passing horses and cattle in the field, ducks and rowers on the glistening river. An unspoilt spot of Oxfordshire, and a perfect tranquil getaway. Highly recommended! Sensible footwear required... More

This wide open space is a real gem. It is about two miles long from the centre of Oxford stretching out to the very northernmost parts where Wolvercote Village separates it from the Oxfordshire countryside. The River Thames runs its length near the western edge, the Oxford canal, is just beyond its Eastern side. Most is open land, originally presented... More

Great spot to take a Sunday stroll and some private time, follow the path to the pub for lunch, watch the rowers, chase the geese or go off piste on the grass. A lovely place to have within such easy reach of the City.

Wandering across Port Meadow, you can see ponies grazing, people sailing small boats on the river, and a splendid vista of the city skyline beyond.
