Days out in Oxford for all the family
Top family days out in the area
Go back in time as you experience the lives of Oxford residents who were unfortunate enough to end up imprisoned in the Oxford Castle. Continue your visit with a tour up the historic mound for views over the city.
|Kassam Stadium complex
On a rainy day drive a short distance to the Kassam Stadium, just south of Oxford. There is plenty on offer to keep the kids amused, from ten-pin bowling and interactive racing games to a multi-screen cinema complex.
Gaze at dinosaur fossils and Alice in Wonderland’s dodo at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, then investigate the world-famous collection of ethnography and world archaeology at the Pitt Rivers Museum. Enjoy a blast of fresh air afterwards whilst strolling around the adjacent University Parks.
Get the heart rate up a notch when you place a bet on the greyhounds at Oxford Stadium off the Cowley Road. Maintain the exhilaration with your own race afterwards around the go-kart track next door.
|Punting and a picnic
Have fun punting from Folly Bridge on the River Thames. Continue the Brideshead Revisited experience with a picnic in Christ Church Meadow and a walk in the College grounds. While you are there, pop your head around the doors of the Great Hall, which doubles as Hogwarts' dining hall in the Harry Potter films.
