Great historic market oozing with heritige. It is great for tourists and needs more traders and has been around 250 years.

Lovely spot right in the centre of town, definitely worth a browse. The pie shop had wonderful looking home made pies, plus loads of other independent shops to explore, and taste their wares.

We found a bunch of really cool shops and places to eat at the covered market. Unfortunately we got there right after Christmas and many of the shops were closed from the 25th to the 29th. We definitely plan to go back.

This is a surprisingly cool place! It's very well maintained, there's lots of nice independent shops, some fresh produce stalls, a couple of restaurants and a great pie shop. The specialty coffee house was jammed when I was there. And, if you are into award...More

Nice place with many cafe serving local fare like pies, fish & chips, pastries and full breakfast. There is also a Thai and Korean food place. Tried Thai - as good as it can be in Oxford (they even have chilli padi in fish sauce)....More

There is a real diversity here, with lots of independent shops, from florists to butchers to clothes and gifts. I did quite a lot of Christmas shopping here and found some lovely gifts for people. We were very pleased.

This has to be a must to visit this covered market, so many traditional stalls selling fresh products and various other items. Lovely to wander around.

We visited on a cold morning in Oxford expecting an exciting range of shops & were disappointed. Perhaps there are more in warmer weather!

Well worth a visit if in Oxford, a great selection of shops, both food and non-food. Not as cheap and tacky looking as many places can be, but all together a very pleasant wander round.

Hi Samantha, that's a tricky Q. as Oxford centre is highly pedestrianised. The official advice for visitors is to use the park & ride car parks and get a bus into the centre, but that doesn't really help folk who find it... More
