Embrace The Sun & Explore

Spring is finally here...honest, just ignore the rain, we had sun the other day and I'm sticking to the fact the summer is round the corner. With that fact it means it's time to stop holing up in student accommodation and explore. Oxford is beautiful a city and there are so many places near to campus worth venturing too.

Joe Perks & Co.

This is a unique little cocktail bar on St Clements Road that I cannot recommend enough. Happy hour run 4:30 till 7, perfect for celebrating your essay hand ins. With candles sitting on the wooden tables and a wide range of music in the background its the perfect way to unwind. Lets be honest, you are now half way to town, you may as well make a night of it and head out.

South Park

Located on Headington Hill it's perfect for anyone studying on John Henry Brookes Campus or living in either Clive Booth or Cheney Halls. Grab a picnic rug, food, and relax in the evening sun.

Varsity Rooftop Bar

Open from Midday onward Varsity club is worth a visit simply for the stunning rooftop view. At night the rooftop is lit up with heaters, fairy lights and you can look out over a star lit Oxford. During the daytime be captured by the sun bouncing off the spires.
