Walk a few minutes from the busy city centre and you will be in the countryside! Christ Church Meadows bordering the rivers Thames and Cherwell is one of the best kept secrets of the city. This 90 minute walk will take you around the gravelled pathways of these ancient water meadows. Normal walking shoes are fine. The area is wheelchair accessible.

Walk in the footsteps of a little girl called Alice who was immortalised in the books “Alice in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass.” Find out the origins of “Dead Man’s Walk”. Look at the punters on the river Cherwell; each end of the punt is named Oxford or Cambridge; find out why!

Three Oxford colleges border the meadows, learn about the academic history of the university. Find out about the first English man to ascend in 1748 from these meadows by balloon to 3,600 feet landing six miles away. Stroll by the mighty Thames learn about its origins to the north of the city and its importance to the original early settlement of people in the area.

Learn about the student rowing races; see the college boat houses. Look for the English Longhorn cows that munch their way through the sweet meadow grass. They look fierce with their curved horns framing their faces but are very friendly! This whole area of the city is steeped in history with great photo opportunities. At the end of your stroll you can sit in a riverside pub.

An amazing tour combining the rich tapestry of Oxford’s history, its University colleges and the tranquillity of Christchurch Meadows. Our guide, Felicity, was so knowledgeable, bringing the places and scenery to life, pointing out aspects and sights of the city that you would miss if you just visited on your own. This is a fascinating, gentle yet innovative walking tour that makes you see Oxford in a new light.

It was an amazing tour with Felicity who was patient and polite. She spoke English slowly in order to make us understand which I was appreciated. The rural life of Oxford is wonderful which everyone need to explore.

My friend and I found this tour extremely enjoyable and informative. In these difficult Covid times we felt safe being outside where social distancing was easy in a small group. Our guide Felicity was friendly and both knowledgeable and experienced. She certainly knew her facts! We gained historical, botanic, literary and geographical knowledge which were put over in a lively and interesting way. Our attention was fully focused . I would highly recommend this tour.
