Don't start your walk without checking when sundown is! We set out after sundown and it was quite intimidating. I kept expecting to hear a werewolf!

Wolvercote has Inns, River, Canals, Ruins and the Meadow to name but a few places of interest. The meadow stretches from the village through to Jericho. A must do visit.

Close to the city centre, we love walking through Port Meadow. It always appears full of life - and not just for the cows! Families, dog walkers, students rowing, teenagers swimming, boats mooring... I could go on. I love running through Port Meadow most: a...More

You can swim, boat, walk, picnic either side of the river or just sit and ponder. It's a relaxing walk through or around and pubs / restaurants abound on the perimiter.

Get a 17 bus from the train station and get off at the Victoria Arms. Head west away from the pub down Walton Well Road.
