Shhhh…. Don’t tell everyone …
As part of our Secret Oxford series of the best things about Oxford, we have compiled the Top 5 best views in Oxford. A little more unusual, a bit off the beaten track. Enjoy.
1. New College Lane
Slip under the Bridge of Sighs and into another era in the only street with no signs of modern 21st century life.
2. Looking down onto Oxford
The view from out of town (Boars Hill just south of the city) down onto Oxford is iconic. The favourite of writers such as Matthew Arnold (“that sweet city with her dreaming spires”) and modern-day romantics alike.
3. Weston Library
Part of the Bodleian with exhibitions, events, great views and tours. bodleian.ox.ac.uk/Weston
4. Magdalen College
The bluebell woods at this time of year are just magical. magd.ox.ac.uk
5. The Roof at TVC Oxford
In amongst the spires and rooftops of Oxford, with views over the High Street and up to the stars. tvcoxford.co.uk/bookings
Ever wondered what Oxford looks like from the sky?
This amazing drone footage of the Roof at TVC shows exactly that! But really, the best views of the city are from the roof top bar itself, served up with delicious cocktails, whilst watching the sun set over the dreamy Oxford spires.
But don’t just take our word for it, if you are in the area, come on up to the best roof top bar in Oxford. Although there is a climb, the cocktails and views at the top are most definitely worth it.
The Roof at TVC
Head up the stairs for unparalleled views over the Dreaming Spires of Oxford, for all seasons, and open all year round. We have bespoke canopies, heaters, heated seats, blankets and throws. Unique and spectacular. The Roof bar serves draft beer and cider, champagne, wine and spirits.
Enjoy dinner from 6pm until 9pm during the week and from 12pm until 9pm on the weekend. Our infamous Artisan boards, the perfect food to drink with, but we also feature a range of seasonal specials!
We operate a first come, first served basis on the Roof. We leave the majority of tables available for walk-ins.
A guaranteed space can only be held with an advance order of drinks/sharing food.
