    Oxford may be famed for its scholars, but it’s also a great city for little learners to explore, with whimsical cobbled streets, lush gardens, and dramatic buildings. It’s also home to educational attractions, including museums and galleries which offer activity books and children's corners for younger guests to enjoy. Oxford’s museums aren’t all forbiddingly highbrow – there are accessible exhibits that can appeal to all ages and attention-spans, and there are often audio tours available for children and adults to enjoy on different levels. You'll also find museums aimed at the younger crowd, with showpieces bringing history to life.

    The city is surrounded by rolling green English countryside, and the city itself has many pretty outdoor spaces where children can roam – from neatly manicured city parks, to working farms where kids can learn about how their food is made. Weather misbehaving? No problem – Oxford has a selection of activities for rainy days which will still get your kids moving and working up an appetite. Close to the city centre attractions, you'll find family restaurants galore – from pubs that serve classic British dishes, to burger joints where you can enjoy a quick, casual meal. Follow us through a selection of Oxford’s great attractions for kids.
