The Oxford City and Meadow Treasure Trail starts at:

Queen Street

Please Note: 

You’ll encounter some cobbles and a kissing gate along the route, so unfortunately it isn’t suitable for wheelchairs. Those with light, foldable pushchairs should find this manageable.

Bring your four-legged friends along! This Trail is completely dog friendly.

The closest long stay pay and display car park to the Trail start point is at Westgate Centre (OX1 1NT), just a five-minute walk away. Or why not try Oxford’s fantastic Park and Ride service?

Please note that Christ Church Meadow occasionally floods after extraordinary rainfall. Two clues would be inaccessible during this time.

There are some fantastic events in Oxford’s calendar, all of which are great times to visit this beautiful city. However, you may find that some of the Clues on this Trail may become obstructed or difficult to access on these occasions. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Oxford Visitor Information.

There are public toilets available at Clue 01, Clue 05 (women only) and Clue 20 (closed Sundays). The route passes several pubs, snack shops and cafes at the beginning of the Trail. There are some great picnic opportunities along the way! 

Why not make a day of it and visit some of Oxford’s amazing attractions – like Carfax Tower and Christ Church College? You could even take a punt along the river! Or, if you’d like another challenge, have a go at one of the other Trails in our Oxford collection!
