A lovely walk with beautiful views and, considering it is so close to the city centre, very quiet and peaceful. Looked a good place for a picnic!

Wow! you can walk in a beautiful garden and very large meadow in the middle of a city! If you enjoy a rural setting, then this is a must.

We walked here from the riverside and canal walk, such a beautiful area which we had not visited before. The gardens are immaculate and I highly recommend them, good to find a free to visit garden too. So glad we decided to go.

We walked from Magdelen to Christ Church along the river and enjoyed the quietness after the hubbub . Jolie promenade le long de la rivière loin de la foule et du bruit.

Having walked the crowded main streets it is pleasant to be able to stroll from Magdalen Bridge to Christ's college in relative tranquility

Lovely grounds for walking all the way to the Botanical Gardens along the river. Several mature trees enroute and Canadian geese galore.

This fabulous historic green meadow is right in the heart of the city. Owned and maintained by Oxford University its a beautiful space to stroll in or have a picnic. Alongside Christchurch College with its wondeful architecture and the river flowing on the other side....More

Our second visit to this beautiful location was the happy occasion of a family wedding. The stunning summer gardens with Cathedral and colleges behind made a glorious background for the wedding party photos.

Banks of typical english flowers in all their full glory of high summer, in front of magnificent historic buildings. These open out onto spacious lawns with fine trees leading to the river. Flat easy walking.

They most certainly are allowed. We take our dog with us and yes we do keep her on the lead, only because there are ducks and sometimes geese walking freely along the river bank. Hope this helps
