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.

Whenever I want to get out of Oxford for a bit, but don't feel like taking a bus/car, I go to Port Meadow. Walking along the Thames is there is absolutely beautiful, and if you're lucky, you'll meet some friendly cows. Perfect for having a picknick, having a drink at the Perch, or just go for a run. Whatever you... More

Great walk, beautiful, calm space where you can walk for a long time without being bored. Lots of birds. After an hour's walk or so, you run into the famous pub of Detective Morse fame. Skip it.

It's a meadow, so plenty of space to walk a dog, but do watch out for cow pats! Usually plenty of parking in Wolvercote.

Amazing number of people walking this area and all have local knowledge which is a help to get the best walks and pub food. A bit wet in places during the winter but not soggy so boots not wellies. Great place for a walk.

I came across Port Meadow will staying in Jericho Oxford last year and couldn't believe how beautiful it was and so close to the centre of Oxford. No matter what time of the day you will walkways find someone walking across the Meadow, and also the activity on the river which borders one side. Once you walk across Port Meadow... More

This was my back garden growing up, what a place, the wildlife, beauty, fishing, picnics, walks, camp building etc etc. It's hard to believe you are a stones throw from the city centre.

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
