Weekends in Oxford

Oxford is a lovely city which I definitely recommend for a weekend break and whilst here a few times over the summer I’ve stayed in some of the neighbourhoods surrounding, which are worth a visit too. Cowley is a young and vibrant neighbourhood with lots of bars and restaurants and Iffley is a quiet relaxed place just next to Cowley and yet so different in feel.

I also had a trip out to the Vale of the White Horse, a lovely spot for a walk. From the summit you can see forever and the landscape is vastly different from my home in the Pennines with its wild moors; here it is neatly managed farmland and collections of little villages.

One thought on “Weekends in Oxford

  1. Hello from mountain lovers living in Oxford! The city is beautiful, and the surrounding countryside provides no end of glorious walks, but few challenging. After 3 years in the city, we’ve found we’re already a little tired of the place, and the mountains are very far!
