Discover Oxford’s hidden and quirky history and unique green spaces with one of our self-guided walks! These walks can be downloaded for free and enjoyed year-round, either in the Oxford Open Doors weekend or after! Each walk has an accompanying family activity with things to spot and questions to answer alongside the walk.
We have a selection of self-guided walks: Green Spaces Walks all feature some OPT land, Hidden Heritage Walks encapsulate Oxford city and hidden heritage, whilst our Partner Walks are designed by additional organisations sharing health walks, as well as walks around specific areas of the city. Click on each of the images below to find the self-guided routes.

Whilst you are here?
We are asking those of you who are interested in Oxford Open Doors to help make sure that it can come back fully next year and for FREE.
Oxford Open Doors is your chance to get behind Oxford’s closed doors to celebrate our wonderful City as we invite you in to the colleges and university buildings together with a range of the City’s other varied and hidden heritage across gown and town.
The OPT team put together the programme and want to keep it free by raising the money needed to put it on with all the of work organising, health and safety, advertising, printed material, website etc.
Like many other charities Covid-19 has had a huge impact and we have seen our income fall, but we are determined to bring Oxford Open Doors back in 2021 and we are asking you to support so please JOIN now or DONATE.
‘Did you know OPT kept all our green spaces open for everyone to enjoy throughout the lockdown.’
Your support will mean that we can:
• Run Oxford Open Doors in 2021 and keep it free to everyone.
• Look after OPTs 1,000 acres of green space, making it publicly accessible, and all free of charge
• Help us to support local specialist heritage contractors working on heritage at risk.
• Help us to champion good design and planning at a time of pressure to change across Oxford/Oxfordshire.
• Support our education and outreach work for young people, including our award winning education scheme at Oxford Castle & Prison.
