A wonderful place for a walk and picnic

Port Meadow is such a great place to wander aimlessly. Take a picnic, or have a walk to the Perch pub. Idyllic.

What a great way to see how the locals spend their weekends! Picnics, games, walks and lots of boats out enjoying the day. Mix in a lot of swans and ducks and you are there!

This open field, mentioned in the Domesday Book, is a great place for a stroll, picnic, BBQ, singalong, jog etc. Careful on the jogging as the locals run cattle in the field. The local rugby halves practice sidestepping and sprinting across uneven ground. Good place to walk across to the Thames walk back round to Oxford or find the riverside... More

Wonderful walk and beautiful landscape. Saw lots of life, grazing horses, fish in the river and people enjoying summer. Went to the Perch which was excellent and a cooling retreat from the summer sun, dining under the apple tree.

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!

Just one of the lovliest places to stroll along, whether for a little walk or right down and back again. There are some amazing pubs along the way and plenty going to see on the River. Parking is pay and display at either end of the Meadow. Take a picnic and have a great day - or visit one of... More
