Jericho Oxford one of the coolest places to live in the UK
Jericho has long been a popular choice for people wanting to live in Oxford. With its diverse range of bars, cafes, restaurants and independent businesses it is a highly desirable location in the city. In 2013 it was listed by The Times as one of the coolest places to live and it has recently made a Top 20 again – this time as one of Travelsupermarket’s ‘hippest’ places to live in the UK.
The Hip Hangout Neighbourhood Index rated 20 areas using data such as the number of independent coffee shops, vintage fashion shops and cultural venues, giving marks out of 10 for three categories: hip culture outpost, creative capital and traveller value. The purpose of the index was to find the areas where locals love to hang out because they are exciting, independent and unspoiled by commercialism.
Jericho is a 10 minute walk from the centre of Oxford and has a varied range of places to eat and different entertainment venues. It retains the beauty of the older University buildings but is sprinkled with unique cocktail bars and restaurants and at the other end of Walton Street you’ll find Port Meadow, a large meadow of open common land.
