Easter has crept up on us again and the cherry blossom will be adorning Instagram screens very, very soon.
Now the temperatures are creeping into a constant above 10 degrees it is time to try out one of our favourite Easter Walks.
This has to be our favourite short(ish) walk in the city. Start at the Oxford Train Station and head along the River Thames (or River Isis) past Port Meadow and towards Godstow Abbey.
Along the way there is The Perch, an amazing opportunity to stop for a drink in their gorgeous garden before continuing along to the The Trout where you can sit on their terrace and watch the world go by. We have a Tramble walk from the The Station to the Trout, and vice versa, which you might like to try for something a little different to do in Oxford. Download and try the Tramble here.
The Guardian have written about a 5k walk in Oxford, which would be perfect for the Easter Weekend.
It sees a number of the main sights, the Bridge of Sighs, the Radcliffe Camera but also some of the film spots that have made Oxford famous.
Find out more about the walk, and download a guide, here.
The Oxfordshire Cotswolds website has a number of excellent walks to follow in the county. We particularly like the walks under the title of the Oxfordshire Way.
If you are looking for a longer way then try the Stonesfield to Kirtlington walk along an old Roman road. The downloadable map also indicates a couple of drink stops along the way. You can find more information out here.
For those living in Oxford a college tour is often overlooked because it is a little too easy to book and go on. It is very easy to forget you have amazing access to some architectural gems right on your doorstep.
One of our favourites, as with many visitors, is Christ Church College with its film history and impressive sights. Following the tours of the buildings, which you can find about here, you might want to consider our Christ Church Meadow Tramble which explores the grounds around the college. Download and try that out here.
Whatever you end up doing, have a great Easter weekend.
