Oxford's Radcliffe Camera on a snowy day

The University city of Oxford and the County of Oxfordshire are wonderful places to spend Christmas.

Throughout the festive season both visitors and residents can join in the excitement of Oxford, a world-class city, with its theatres, music, and bustling crowds as well as enjoy a warm welcome at events in Oxfordshire's market towns and villages. There's a huge range of places to eat, drink, be merry - and stay the night - all within easy reach. And to walk off any over-indulgence there's the rolling Cotswold and Ironstone hills to explore - plus 11 long-distance footpaths through some of England's most attractive countryside.

Oxford Morris Men ready to dance
Oxford lights up on Friday 26 November when the annual Light Night event hosts two processions, one a spectacular parade of children's willow lanterns, the other a shimmering promenade of bells, chimes and grand chorales. Traditional games for children are on offer at the Museum of Oxford and festive stories at the Oxford Playhouse. Exciting lighting effects transform the University and Pitt Rivers Museums, a magical backcloth for music and dancing, while older children and adults will relish a spooky lamplight tour of creepy Oxford Castle.
