It’s July, meaning the school summer holidays are just around the corner. If you are already wondering how to keep the children entertained, we’re rounding up a list of activities for days out with the kids in Oxfordshire and beyond this summer. Share your top days out with us, and we’ll endeavour to add them to the list.
Oxfordshire is home to many family-friendly museums and galleries. Whether you’re looking for things to see at the Museum of Natural History or exploring the Ashmolean, each museum and gallery offers a unique and memorable immersive learning opportunity. PS: Many are free, so days out with the kids in Oxfordshire does not have to cost the earth.
There are tons of other places to have a picnic in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside – from village greens to public parks and gardens. Many of the parks and public gardens in Oxford and across Oxfordshire allow family picnics. If you want to enjoy the sunshine with a picnic in the park, here are some of our favourite picks.
There are regular Famers’ Markets in Oxfordshire that offer the freshest bread, best cuts of quality meat, gourmet pies and pastries, and exquisite sauces, oils and snacks.
At this time of the year, the garden is in full swing, with many at their peak, along with a vegetable plot that’s full of produce. It’s such a lovely time of the year in the garden, weather permitting.
Travel back in time to the golden age of the Great Western Railway as you explore this 21-acre living museum with trains dating from Victorian times to the 1960s.
