Oxford sightseeing

Useful information for visiting Oxford

Weekly Home Favourite: University of Oxford Botanic Gardens

If you are staying in one of our short let apartments or holiday cottages and looking for something to do in Oxford, one of our favourites is the University of Oxfords Botanic Gardens. The gardens are very close to a lot of our central Oxford properties and the perfect place to spend an afternoon.

Oxford University Museum of Natural History

If you are in Oxford staying in one of our short let apartments or holiday cottages our recommendation for the weekend is the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. Rain has been predicted for this weekend, so we are recommending an indoor activity.

Picnic by the river in Oxford

If you're staying in one of our central Oxford short lets, we recommend a picnic on the canal bank in Christ Church meadow. Christ Church, one of the largest of Oxford’s colleges, is considered by many to be the most beautiful. At one end of the meadow, at St Aldates, can be found Alice’s Shop, notable for its inclusion in Carrols Wonderland Adventures.

Modern Art Oxford

One of the best places to spend an afternoon in Oxford according to the Weekly Home staff is Modern Art Oxford. As the weather in Oxford hasn’t been great over the last month we thought that we should recommend something that is inside.

The Ashmolean Museum

If you renting a Weekly Home short let in Oxford you need to make visiting the Ashmolean Museum a priority.

The charming village of Old Marston

Old Marston is a village on the outskirts of Oxford. It is unique oasis of tranquility just 3 km outside of the city centre. Our Oxford short let Cedar Cottage in located in the heart of the village. A guest described the cottage and Old Marston: “Oxford is full of treasures and this is one of them.”
