This is easily one of my favourite places to spend time and walk in the city. You can go from Jericho to a beautiful, expansive meadow that stretches on for ages in under 10 minutes. One of the nicest places in the city to watch sunsets.

Great place to walk, talk, picnic, swim, watch the river, watch the railway, get muddy ... just a really nice wide open space amazingly close to the centre of the city and one of the places that makes Oxford wonderful. For something different - go for an evening swim in the river on a warm summer evening - it's wonderful!

Parking is pay and display at either end of the Meadow. Take a picnic and have a great day - or visit one of... More

Personable woman who operates the canal/ Thanes river locks helps canoes and kayaks through with encouraging words. The meadow itself is enjoyed by dog owners, picnickers and familiar walking stick Brits. The imposing steeples and towers of Oxford University can be seen in the distance.

A Lovely place to have a picnic and a walk along the river. It was great to see the horses rolling in the water.

Another nice area to do nothing and make it last all day. Nice dog walking area or just to watch the boats bobbing about on the water. A very laid back place to visit.

We visited Port Meadow from the north end this time. There is a car park with loos just beyond Wolvercote, together with a field by the old bathing spot with picnic benches. Ideal for parking, comfort breaks , picnics and walks. The village of Wolvercote with two pubs is also nearby.
