Walking in Oxford City

Oxford is best explored on foot. The narrow cobbled streets in the centre and around many of the colleges are inaccessible for cars and guided walking tours are a great way to learn about Oxford and its rich heritage, and there is a wide range of themed tours on offer, catering for all interests. Book an Official Walking Tour of Oxford for insights into the city’s fascinating history.


For those who would like to escape the busy streets, there are wonderfully quiet paths along Oxford’s rivers and through the many parks, such as Christ Church Meadows or Port Meadow, which often link to signposted long distance paths which you can walk along for days.
