Punting is a traditional and long practised feature of Oxford, with Thames and Cherwell running through the city. A great deal of the road network allows you to cycle around Oxford or a gentle walk along the river or canal. Picnicking is one of the many parks or meadows alongside the river, which are popular weekend activities.
Surrounding areas of the city include Woodstock and the historic Blenheim Palace, with transportation links to London and places further afield London. The airports are close enough for you to be able to travel abroad when possible, but far enough away that you are not under any loud flight paths.
Oxford is truly an incredible place to live, work and enjoy your retirement.
