What's open on Boxing Day?

by Silverarrow226

I will be stopping in Oxford on December 26. Will there be any tours of the college available? What other tourist sights can I see? Will any pubs be open?


Re: What's open on Boxing Day?

by leics

Boxing Day is a bank holiday, so many shops will be either shut or open for limited hours (often 10 - 4 or 11 - 5). It is unlikely that you'll be able to have tours of the colleges, though you'll be able to see some exteriors and Oxford is a pleasant enough place to walk around anyway. Walking by the river is always good, and it is just possible that some museums might be open in the afternoon. Pubs will be open but maybe for shorter hours than usual. You'll enjoy the day, I think, but your options will be more limited than at other times.

The Views From St. Mary's Church...

by coceng

There are 127 steps to go up the tower of St. Mary's Church.
From the top, we can see excellent views over the city of Oxford !
These are my photos, my own views from my camera, through my eyes to the top; on the tower & descending down...
Managed to snap this photo of the church wall.
Big window & some nice decorations (figures) at the top...
Some parts are new, some parts are old.

Remember to buy yourself an Oxford tee shirt while you're there. One in every 125,000 people who see you in it will think maybe you attended one of the colleges. (Have a college picked out to name in case they ask.) Regardless, wearing said tee shirt will make you feel .10 percent smarter.

Oxford United

by DUNK67

Oxford United play football in the English third division at the Kassam Stadium. It is a nice compact stadium built on only 3 sides, the 4th side is a car park. It can be a nightmare to get out of if you are parked near to the stadium as there seems to be only one road out of the area, so most people use the park and ride buses to get there. To watch the match the only equipment you really need is a good strong voice to sing your club`s songs and encourage the team and your eyes to actually watch the game, some people do take a pair of binoculars if they sit far from the pitch.
Apart from the above the club s encourage you to buy their merchandise to enhance your matchday experience, you can buy virtually anything from hats and scarfs to the full blown replica kit, which generally is updated annually.

Not so much off the beaten path...more like a timing issue. Party it up at the May Ball the night before, hie on down to Magdealen Bridge at 06:00 on May 1st and fight through a crown of 10,000+ people to listen to the choir sing on top of the tower. Traditionaly, still-drunk students would jump off the bridge and into the 3 foot deep mucky Cherwell River running below, usually still dressed in their tuxedos and gowns. In 1998 they stopped allowing people onto the bridge in order to prohibit jumping...of course their excuse was that so many people put too much stress on the old bridge. Yeah, that's why cars and buses drive over it all day... After the choir sings and everything is said and done, head on over to a pub for a pint! The pubs are open bright and early on May Day and everyone tends to be in high spirits.

...that's (half of) me jumping off Magdalen Bridge. I was detained by the police, threatened with deportation and then released. The river was freeezing cold but I'd do it again in a heartbeat!
