This is a gorgeous place to walk and think. It is beautiful in all seasons. Mind the cows and horses though.

This flood plain is bordered by the Thames on one side and the Oxford canal on the other. From Walton Well Road, a good circuit is to follow the canal to Aristotle Lane and then head left through the modern housing and across the railway...More

As a resident of central Oxford, the meadow is the go-to place on sunny days, and even on grey days for a peaceful walk, to stroke a pony, and to have picnic. The stroll along the canal to get there is just as lovely. We...More

Port Meadow is a unique ancient meadow (reputedly it has never been ploughed), which stretches along the Isis from Jericho to Wolvercote. Coming from the city, you can follow the towpath here or walk down Walton Well Road. Most times of the year you will...More

Probably not the place to go when it's wet as it is a flood zone but in the spring and early summer it's great - a wide open space with the odd pub on the outskirts!

Had a lovely day here today – simply walking and enjoying being out in the fresh air. Some people say it's just a big field, but it's so much more than that. It feels like a very special place. We particularly enjoyed walking on the...More

This is the place to go to escape the city of Oxford and within walking distance of our hotel which was located on Beaumont Street. If you cross the bridge and stay left you will come to a lovely little pub called the Perch. The...More

No trip to Oxford (for those who get out and about) is complete without a walk to/on Port Meadow. The cows. The rabbits. The paths. The beauty. Plus this meadow has been preserved for millenia. Bring your windbreaker for the unexpected shower, keep in mind...More

Get a 17 bus from the train station and get off at the Victoria Arms. Head west away from the pub down Walton Well Road.
