A smashing walk along the river in the centre of a City

It's just so very peaceful walking along a stretch of the river in the centre of Oxford, coming across the occasional punt full of those enjoying themselves in this location.

A beautiful green space in the heart of Oxford, adjoining Christ Church, one of the most beautiful colleges in Oxford and near the Botanical Gardens. This is a lovely place to walk in any season, at any time of the day, though in the winter when the river floods it can be muddy, so beware. It's a perfect walk with... More

Break out the walking shoes, this is a lovely area to take a stroll takes you up to the river and gets you out of the traffic in the Main Street.

My wife and I visited Christ Church Meadow on a very hot day but it was not a problem as we found many places to sit in the shad and relax. Watching the Punts on the river was also enjoyable. The area can get quite crowded with oversea's visitors at times but this too was not a problem as the... More

The Meadows are tidy and well kept, great for morning runs or for taking a pizza from the van for dinner! However, does get quite full of tourists in the middle of the day but if you keep walking down the river you quickly leave them behind.

Whether you're a local or a tourist you'll love it. Such a gem tucked away in the city centre, really feels like an escape from the busy streets. Doesn't matter if you're simply looking for somewhere to sit and eat your lunch or take a strole around the river and watch people attending to punt and row boats. Being a... More

Been here a myriad of times. I think my favourite time to visit is the summer, but it is a lovely place to wander, admire the scenery or just sit and watch the world go by any time of the year :-) Oxford at its best. To get there, walk from Carfax crossroads, down St Aldates. The entrance is after... More

Firstly, I would recommend you use one of the 5 Park & Ride sites to journey into Oxford. We used Thornhill where you pay £2 to park your car for 11 hours then about £1.60p for the return trip on the Bus, or as I did use your Bus Pass for free. The grounds of Christ Church Meadow are beautiful... More
