Anything to do before 11am on a Sunday?


Our check out time from our central Oxford accomodation is 11am on the Sunday - is there anything we can do in central Oxford before we check out? I have been looking at places to visit and most seem to only open at 12pm or not at all on Sundays.

Would like to know whether we should lie in on Sunday and not bother going out, or if there is something we can occupy ourselves with?

Thanks for any help!

Merton College usually opens at 10am on a Sunday, debatably it's Oxford's oldest college, it certainly has the oldest quad, dining hall and chapel. Worth a look if you haven't been in already.

Walk into Christchurvh Meadow and as far as the river if you have time.

If it's a lovely morning, I agree that going for a walk by Christ Church Meadow is a lovely thing to do. Then have a good stroll around town - the Radcliffe Camera, High Street - it will remind you of why you came to visit Oxford in the first place. Then have breakfast at the News Cafe or a coffee at the Kings Arms or the Turf Tavern - both of which will be serving coffee before the 11.15am concert at the Holywell Music Room.

In my opinion there is nothing wrong with a lie in, but for something a little unusual why not take a walk through University parks and then check out the shrunken heads at the Pitt Rivers museum tourinaday.com/oxford/pitt-rivers-museum.htm they are open 10 - 4.30 on Sundays.

For something a little more leisurely you could go to the Jericho cafe where you can relax with a full english breakfast while you read the Sunday papers - always a nice start to a Sunday.

Have an enjoyable stay!
