Oxford Parks and Spires Walk

WalkExplorer

The route starts at Carfax, the central crossroads in Oxford and a busy junction. It passes through the city's old quarter, down High Street and past University Church, the Radcliffe Camera, the old and new Bodleian Library and the University Science area. 

Next it tours the University Parks, which include a lake, then follows the River Cherwell downstream into East Oxford. The next stage crosses Headington Hill Park, which is next to Oxford's second university, Brookes. It skirts South Park, a large recreational area and heads back into the city centre, passing Magdalen Bridge, Deer Park and College, plus the University Botanic Gardens. 

Finally, it tours Christchurch Meadow, a huge expanse of wild land. The walk concludes with a walk beside the River Thames to Christ Church itself and from there back to Carfax.
