Walking in Oxfordshire

Most of Oxfordshire’s charming towns and villages are connected by old public footpaths and bridleways, so it’s easy to go out for a wander and explore! Roman roads, ancient trade routes, long distance paths that have been used by kings, poets and peasants, and many surprises along the way await. You can find mysterious stone circles, a Roman villa, a grand palace, ancient Royal Hunting Forests and many more things. Wherever you walk in Oxfordshire, you’re never far from interesting historical and literary connections, so a walking guide or guide book is recommended to learn about the area’s fascinating past.


There are possibilities for guided walks in Oxfordshire, as well as many print guides with valuable information and routes of different lengths, which are available for purchase at the Visitor Information Centre.
