St Mary the Virgin Church

Details

The tower commands some of the finest views of Oxford's famous skyline. It is worth the climb of 124 steps to make it to the top to enjoy fine uninterrupted views in all directions across Oxford and the surrounding countryside.
The 62m tower dates from the 13th century. The rest of the church was rebuilt in Perpendicular style in the early 16th century.

Gift shop

The Vaults & Garden coffee shop specialises in organic food and fairly traded tea and coffee, and is located behind the church.
