Port Meadow is the closest Oxford comes to rural landscapes, and it does pretty well. The meadow itself stretched between Jericho and Wolvercote, and is home to a herd of wild(ish) horses. It's perfect for running around and can be combined with a run along the Thames footpath taking you all the way around the city and up into Ifley... More

Great place to walk, the views of Oxford afford those dreaming spires oft mentioned. Great for the kids, too. A nice outing, especially on a nice day.

I didn't realise it was so close to Jericho. I've been working near Port Meadow for a while, but I had no idea. If you are on Walton Street, walk until you get to the Victoria pub, turn left. That is Walton Well Road. All you have to do is walk over the railway bridge and, hey presto, you're there!... More

Very nice here on sunny day. Next to river thame's. There is a tree area opposite side to river with footpaths. Cows and horses are grazed on this land, so be careful when walking. Walking northwards will take you to Wolvercote common and Wolvercote which has three pubs all in lower Wolvercote. Can also walk to port meadow from Oxford... More

We took a river boat tour from Folley Bridge and stopped at Port Meadow where cows and horses can graze while you stare out over the rooftops onto parts of academic Oxford; great place to relax during the summer while reading a book perhaps, or writing poetry (give it a go! be inspired!); a few pubs nearby if you know...

A beautiful wide open space next to the river Thames. Summer is the best time to visit here. Although the river is not very clean, there are spots to go swimming.

It is a little more out of the way than the busy centre, or walks lower down the river. The meadow itself offers free grazing to cattle and horses, so if you don't like cows treat them with respectful distance. The path winds beside the higher reaches of the Thames and its connections with the canal and crosses over a... More
