Hidden Heritage Walks

On this page you will find downloadable details of self-guided walks around parts of Oxford which focus on sharing information about our wonderful heritage. These printable sheets are designed to be printed back to back on A4. Each walk has an accompanying family activity with things to spot and questions to answer alongside the walk. Since its foundation in 1927, Oxford Preservation Trust has sought to protect Oxford's heritage and green setting for the benefit of all. These self-guided walks were inspired by the Oxford On Foot book produced by the Oxford Pedestrians Association, which can be purchased here, and were produced by the OPT team with thanks to the family of Alun Jones for allowing us to use his wonderful maps.

Please also see the Oxford Canal Heritage Trail Guide and Audio Guide created by Oxford Canal Heritage which explores the history of Oxford's canal and narrowboat community, and includes the OPT-owned Rewley Road Swing Bridge and Oxford Castle & Prison.

We are grateful to Oxford Pedestrians Association and Cyclox for their continued support and who each year help distribute Oxford Open Doors information across the city.

If you have enjoyed these heritage walks, take a look at our Heritage Walk Books - an unusual and useful guide to forgotten and precarious features of the city.
