A cold crisp February morning with sun shine and blue skies so I set off around Christ Church Meadow. The footpath is wide and dry and takes you around the meadow that fronts the college. After the hustle and bustle of traffic on Magdalen Bridge you are transported to solitude, the quack of ducks and the occasional goose and swan... More

A really nice location in the centre of oxford for a relaxing walk, you can walk through the meadows and along the river. Popular with tourists and runners alike.

1.8k for the smaller loop and 2.1k for the loop with the dead mans part. Sub 5 minutes for the smaller loop and you're ready to jump teh fence into the Iffley Road track and give a sub-4 minute mile a go!

Probably the best place to go for a walk in town. Peace and green everywhere. Maybe it is a little bit crowded in the weekend...better during the week

There is one main path around the outside, which in parts is like a picture book. There are alternative shorter walks because there's a centre path. Entering and exiting is only possible for pushchairs and wheelchairs from St Aldate's, and in the summer Merton College closed the Rose Lane gate without bothering to make that clear to those entering at...

Amazing garden set in the back drop of the Church. Had a quick walk round as very cold day but been inspired. Would love to go back in the summer.

Quiet, flat, relaxing...the meadows offer a pretty view away from the crowds. You can walk either from st aldgates or Christ church, through the meadows and back along rose lane, into the centre. The ducks are always pleased to see people...
