Christ Church Meadow is a flood-meadow and popular walking and picnic spot in Oxford, England.
Roughly triangular in shape, it is bounded by the River Thames (the stretch through Oxford being known as "The Isis"), the River Cherwell, and Christ Church. The meadow provides access to many of the college boat houses which are on an island at the confluence of the two rivers. The lower sections of the meadow, close to the Thames, are grazed by cattle (including Longhorn cows) while the upper sections have sports fields. Broad Walk is at the northern edge with Merton Field to the north and Merton College, dominated by the tower of Merton College Chapel, beyond that.

Well worth a visit if you come to Oxford. Have a relaxing walk around the river, see the historic Christ Church. Great views

It's free and it's lovely, the your sandwiches there and dine in style for next to nothing whilst you watch the college rowing crews show you their prowess. Then visit the college and Cathedral for a real treat and only & 7.

I love the Meadow so much, 5 stars are not enough for this magical place! When you're there, it's clear why Alice and Hobbit could call it "a birth place" 😉

This is a great place for both visitors and people who live or work in Oxford to relax. Whether you just sit and think, eat your lunch or stroll along the footpath, it is a great place to see Christchurch College from, enjoy the river and watch the boats go by. This is a place that fans of Morse, Lewis and Endeavour will enjoy as it often appears in episodes of these shows.

What a beautiful building and a Fantastic walk around the park. I did not go inside, there was a huge line to get in. But walking around at the park is worth it for sure!

Beautiful place for walking, running and just relax. In the summer the gate is closed around 8 pm, so you have plenty of time to walk around. Be sure to go there when is sunset, it's really beautiful view!

Highly recommended to visit. Daffodils everywhere in spring time and a nice place to run or walk.

It's a great place to look around - the Great Hall is a must-see especially if you are a fan of the Harry Potter series. Enjoy!

Very good place in Oxford to spend peaceful time while watching calm water, kayaks and ships.

The church it’s beautiful, all the rooms and the corridors are great and well treated. The staff it’s very helpful and friendly, they give you information if you ask, always with a smile on the face! For an Harry Potter’s lover it’s an amazing experience! The shop it’s very full and not too expensive. The only problem is that the church opens at two o'clock and then, if you have not booked before, you have to get around one, which, under the sun, is not really comfortable.

Christ Church Meadow is a beautiful, huge and green area where people can do and see many things as the magnificent Meadow Building, the River Thames and the River Cherwell that surround the meadow, the Jubilee Bridge, and also the Merton College with its truly elegant gardens.

I think the church is beautiful and very big. It was a kind of strange to see the cantine that's used in the Harry potter films as the messing hall. It's much smaller than you think from the movies. I didn't see the library, although it was in that building, but I guess I should return to see it then, I came to the church with school, we went to London as a school trip.

Lovely peaceful area leading to the river bank. Could do with a few more benches to sit and watch the world go by, and there are coachloads of tourists being dragged around, but that's to be expected!.
