Oxfordshire Way

The Oxfordshire Way is a 68-mile walk that begins just over the Gloucestershire border in Bourton-on-the-Water and ends in Henley-on-Thames, passing through stunning countryside and two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Cotswolds and the Chilterns, along the way.

It passes through many of Oxfordshire’s most picturesque villages including Shipton-under-Wychwood, Charlbury, Weston-on-the-Green and Islip as it cuts a roughly southeast path through the county.

Points of interest on the route include prehistoric tracks, Domesday Book manors and medieval churches, as well as Blenheim Park, one of only 28 World Heritage Sites in the UK.

Oxfordshire County Council publishes a series of maps covering the entire route, which forms part of the E2 European long distance path between Kirtlington and Bourton-on-the-Water.
