Parks & Gardens

The city of Oxford is full of green spaces to relax and unwind. From the city’s many parks and meadows like Christ Church Meadows, South Parks, University Parks and Port Meadow, to the wonderfully kept, serene college gardens such as Wadham College hiding behind high walls and on the banks of the river Cherwell the oldest Botanic Garden in the world.

Oxfordshire’s mild climate and sheltered position amidst rolling hills makes it perfect for all types of gardens – enjoy the Capability Brown shaped parklands at Blenheim Palace, the exotic gardens at Cotswold Wildlife Park, Peto’s Water Gardens at Buscot Park, the stunning collection of roses at Broughton Castle, autumn colour at Batsford Arboretum, watch deer and birdlife at Stonor Park, astonishing three dimensional bedding at Waddesdon Manor and the glorious herbaceous border at Waterperry.
