This visit was something of a nostalgic occasion for us and our daughter, so in perfect summer weather, we included a slow stroll around the Christchurch Meadow 'Loop' and ended at the Head of the River pub for a delightful al-fresco lunch.

During a self-guided tour of Christ Church, we had a nice view of the meadow. I wish there was less emphasis on Harry Potter being filmed in the dining hall and more on the college history.

Beautiful grassy area and gardens at the entry to Christ Church and along the river. While there we were able to observe a cricket match and several punts/boats on the river.

It's a must visit college when in Oxford. The views are excellent and you get Harry Potter sets to visit. It's serene with vast green meadows and ducks roaming around. It was a pleasure visiting.

They most certainly are allowed. We take our dog with us and yes we do keep her on the lead, only because there are ducks and sometimes geese walking freely along the river bank. Hope this helps
