While Oxford isn’t the biggest UK city, there is plenty to see and do here, plus it is all being in walking distance.
But how do you fit it all into one day and what things should you see in this one day?
Well, I have you sorted with this itinerary for how best to spend 24 hours in Oxford city.
With only 24hrs in this city, you want to start early allowing you time to see as much of the city as possible.
Starting at the university museum of natural history and the Pitt museum both are in the same location allowing you to see two sites in one.
At the museums, you will see a range of fossils, minerals as well as artefacts from around the globe taking you through both the natural, manmade histories.
Going around the museums will take you roughly 2 hours, but you can of course spend a longer or shorter amount of time depending on how fast you chose to go around the museums.
Next up I recommend taking a walk down to the road, which will take you to the Bridge of Sigh, Radcliff square and then along to the University Church of St Marys where you can climb to the top of the tower for a 360 view of the city.
Lunchtime!! I would recommend heading to the covered market where there are a few different food places, but you are also right by in the city centre with many more options if something in the market doesn’t take your fancy.
Now it is time to head up the Ashmolean museum to tour around the worldwide artefacts. This is something you will want to do as there are items from all around the world taking you back through time along with allowing you to earn more about other ancient cultures without leaving the building.
Depending on your trip you may decide to go and check into accommodation for the night, start heading back home depending on how far away you are or even go for a stroll through one of the many parks in Oxford here are a few you may wish to take a look at:
- University park
- Botanic gardens
- Port Meadow
- Christ Church Meadow
- Collage garden and parks
Hope this guide on how to best spend 24hrs in Oxford has given you an idea of some of the many activities available to you in this beautiful city, with most of them being free.
