The trail through Port Meadow is rough and bumpy, OK for a walk but not great for biking. Cows and horses run free; stay away from calves and their protective mothers. Thames Path is better.

we had a trip on the river to Port Meadow. What a beautiful place! A lovely warm day, cattle and horses stood in the water to cool off and herons on the bank. A gorgeous serene landscape.

The sunsets there are amazing, especially in summer. Very nice area, with cows, horses, and lots of people running or relaxing.

We live in Oxford and this is by far our favourite place to visit for a weekend walk/cycle.
Tranquil meadow and shining river, greedy horses and shy cows. It's just so beautiful and whenever we take our friends from somewhere else they are always impressed.
Be careful though - horses are greedy and my father-in-law was mugged by a massive horse for strawberries he was carrying in a plastic bag!
If you walk up from city centre side to the north, you'll end up at the beautiful pub the Trout Inn.
