You will be within a few minutes walk of a community village shop run by villagers, two hotels and two pubs serving good food. A park, a small gym, and a choice of supermarkets are within easy reach. The city is a pleasant 30 minute walk along the river tow path, with your first stop perhaps being Christchurch College and meadows. Most of the colleges are open to the public, or you can pay a visit the Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers museums,The Sheldonian Library, or Blackwells Book Shop. Another option would be to take a guided walking tour, or ride on an open top bus, in order to familiarise yourselves with the dreaming spires of Oxford. Restaurants in the city include Gees, The Old Parsonage, Quads, The Vaults, and The Trout, to name only a few of many. The Playhouse Theatre and the Pheonix Cinema in Jerico offer easily accessible entertainment. For OXFORD FESTIVALS see:THE OXFORD CITY GUIDE & DAILY INFORMATION. . Life in Oxford is never dull!More

About the neighbourhood
Iffley is a peaceful haven, away from the pace of the city, but very easily accessible. During the Lock down of 2020 it has provided a very safe place to pass the time, and a pleasant environment for people to wander down to the river, where the views are gorgeous, The bird song is quite remarkable, as there are many tall trees For Oxford attractions consult: THE OXFORD CITY GUIDE, OR DAILY INFORMATION for an extensive list of annual Festivals, Activities, College events , Restaurants, Shops, Markets, and University College Events.
Getting around
A feature of life in Oxford is an easy bus service to airports, a good train service, and plenty of taxis. Punts and Boats are available to hire. River boards welcome. However perhaps a bike will seem most appropriate once you see how many there are in regular use.
