My wife insisted we visited the place. We were very impressed and it was steeped in history. Magical stories and history were in abundance. I was impressed by a cleric that spoke fluent Russian. My wife is Russian.

when visiting England, you must complete a circuit of the meadow: admire Magdalene Bridge, MCS' extraordinary island playfields, the wonderful new CC bridge across the Cherwell to their sports fields (what wealth!) and through bucolic bliss past Follly bridge taking in a regatta on the Thames, a pub an then to the glory of CC and on Dead Mann's walk...

This place was a surprising little found. It's a great place to walk or run, especially in a sunny day. Love the field, river, trees and birds.

Really nice place to visit. Unfortunately we didn't go inside as there is a charge to visit. But from the outside it looks amazing. See attached pictures. Thanks

This area is only a short walk from the very middle of Oxford and you will easily forget that it is there once you turn in and walk along. The main walkway takes you past the colleges and at the end you can walk back into the city. However as you reach the end you can follow it round and... More

Stroll around the meadow and enjoy views of the rivers (Cherwell and Thames/Isis) and the adjacent Christ Church College. Tranquility abounds in contrast to the busy nearby city center.

It is a lovely walk to take. Whilst walking along the river you can see deer, geese, ducks and other animals, which is a lovely contrast, considering that it is in the centre of a city. A short wander, but one that does you good from the city air. Particularly nice when hungover.

The entrance to Christchurch Meadow from St Aldate's is very beautiful, with flower beds either side of the gravel path bordered by Christchurch College. Walking up a few steps, the wide path leads through a large field to the river where young visitors have hilarious fun punting - steering a flat-bottomed wooden boat with a long pole. Often bumping into... More

This meadow is a such beautiful scenery that we need to take a more relaxed walking pace as we pass by before entering the "grand Hall" premises in HP movies which my excited teens wanted to see as we entered Oxford ...
