A beautiful place to get away from the hustle of the city center. It is very peaceful and quiet and good if you want to sit or walk in peace perhaps finish that book.

Christchurch Meadow is a nice get away barely a two minute walk away from the main Oxford shopping streets of the city centre. With plently of wide space of many people to walk, this park leads down to the river banks of the Isis (what the Thames is known as it passes through Oxford) which you can have a walk along and see the boaters out and about and there are plently of grassy spaces to sit down and enjoy a picnic.

There is also the head of the river pub down by the river banks, which you can stop at during your walk to enjoy a drink outside on it's patio as you watch the river go by. If there is a drawback to christ church it is during high rain fall the meadow and paths can become flooded, so become aware if there has been heavy rainfall recently that this may be an issue.

Always a nice place to stroll after a look around Oxford or a big lunch. Great views of Christ Church and Merton Coleges.

It is a lovely relaxing place to stroll with some formal planting and excellent views of Christ Church. It is nice to get away from the bustle of Oxford here

... this is a great place to walk, especially down by the river. At the moment the snowdrops are out, but soon there will be daffodils and the rare fritillaries in the meadow.
