Planning your perfect day out?

Here are some ideas to suit everyone. Please remember to check the website of where you plan to visit to check opening times, whether you need to book in advance, or if there are any restrictions in place. 

Take a walk on the wild side...

From armadillos to zebras, there are plenty of wild animals to see at Cotswold Wildlife Park (click). Or if farm animals are more your thing, Millets Farm (click) is the place for you. Feed the animals, pick your own fruit and veg, then stop off for cake in their onsite cafe. Feeling more adventurous, why not visit the UK’s only crocodile zoo (click)?

Looking for events?

With many events postponed or cancelled, Daily Info (click) is a great place to be kept up-to-date with what’s going on. From gigs and comedy, to online dance classes and open air cinema screenings. You certainly won’t get bored, and could even learn a new skill!

Ready to explore?

There are lots of walks and cycle rides (click) for varying abilities - the perfect way to enjoy the beautiful countryside at your own pace. Or if it's culture you're after, why not visit the Ashmolean Museum (click) when it reopens its doors on 10 August? Before then, you can discover its amazing collections online from the comfort of your home.

Want to get involved?

From health walks, to kickboxing, table tennis to raffles - there are plenty of things to get involved with on the JACKtivities website (click). Or, for more family fun, check out Activities Oxfordshire (click) on our Family Information Directory.

Fancy some peace and quiet? Set in enchanting landscaped grounds, Buscot Park and gardens (click) is the perfect place to find some peace and quiet. Or discover the beauty of Blenheim Palace (click) and take a walk around the lake or their Formal Gardens. Oxford Botanic Garden (click) - the oldest botanic garden in Great Britain - is also a haven for peace and tranquility.
