About Christ Church Meadow, Oxford

Christ Church Meadow is a popular walking and picnic spot, offering a quaint environment and scenic views. The meadow periphery meets Riven Thames, River Cherwell and Christ Church. The lower sections of the pasture, closer to Thames, are used for cattle grazing and the other end is used as sports fields. Oxford’s main rowing events are annually held at the Thames near the meadow.

The medieval royal pretender, John Deydras, claimed to have been tricked by the devil at the Christ Church Meadow into impersonating Edward the Second. The place is also the site of the first hot air balloon ride by an Englishman in 1784. The Christ Church Meadow is the property of Christ Church and visitors are allowed access during the day through its multiple entrances. 

Take long walks along the river and explore the Broad Walk, north of Christ Church. The Thames bank offers amazing views of the colleges. The meadow is grazed by Long Horn Cattle. The Church also maintains a rare breed of sheep on the greens. 

Spend some time in the open spaces of this meadow and you will come out appreciating the brooding, contemplative moods of the English poets.

Christ Church Meadow, Oxford Reviews

Google+
  • This is a great place for both visitors and people who live or work in Oxford to relax. Whether you just sit and think, eat your lunch or stroll along the footpath, it is a great place to see Christchurch College from, enjoy the river and watch the boats go by. This is a place that fans of Morse, Lewis and Endeavour will enjoy as it often appears in episodes of these shows.

  • Beautiful place for walking, running and just relax. In the summer the gate is closed around 8 pm, so you have plenty of time to walk around. Be sure to go there when is sunset, it's really beautiful view!

  • Highly recommended to visit. Daffodils everywhere in spring time and a nice place to run or walk.

  • Well worth a visit if you come to Oxford. Have a relaxing walk around the river, see the historic Christ Church. Great views

  • What a beautiful building and a Fantastic walk around the park. I did not go inside, there was a huge line to get in. But walking around at the park is worth it for sure!
