Beautiful, well kept, park right in the heart of Oxford with a huge variety of trees and plants, a duck pond, a choice of walks and space for games and picnics. Open to the public every day until dusk, except Christmas Eve

Offering an escape from the hustle and bustle of the City, but conveniently located right at its heart, is the green oasis offered by University Parks – with something to please everyone. Aiming to be available for the enjoyment of members of the University, local residents, and visitors to Oxford…

A beautiful peaceful park, great for walks all seasons and picnics when the weather allows. Also a great cut through to Marston if needed.

History Museum
“The Ashmolean Museum was named after its founder Elias Ashmole (1617–1692) and opened in 1683. It is widely recognised as being the first modern museum. Elias Ashmole was a royalist, lawyer, antiquarian, scholar, and collector who gave his collections to the University of Oxford in 1677. The Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology on Beaumont Street, Oxford, England, is the world's first university museum. Its first building was erected in 1678–83 to house the cabinet of curiosities that Elias Ashmole gave to the University of Oxford in 1677. The present building was erected 1841–45. The museum reopened in 2009 after a major redevelopment. In November 2011, new galleries focusing on Egypt and Nubia were unveiled. In May 2016, the museum opened new galleries of 19th-century art.”
