Oxford Christmas Guide

Our boutique hotel in Oxford may be biased, but we couldn’t think of anywhere better to go on a Christmas staycation than the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’. As many flock to the City of London, Oxford is often forgotten as a festive destination. In this blog, our boutique Oxford hotel explores some of the top reasons to book a staycation in the historic city this Christmas…

Oxford Christmas Market

The streets of central Oxford will once again be filled with festive cheer as Oxford Christmas Market returns. Like every year, market traders will offer handmade gifts, colourful decorations and delicious festive treats. Whether you’re looking for some unusual gifts or just fancy a couple of mulled wines and some food – you’ll be sure to get in the spirit of Christmas.

Christmas at Blenheim

Escape to Wonderland this Christmas at Blenheim Palace. With this year’s theme, you’ll be transported into the magical fairy tale world of Alice in Wonderland, with a number of lavishly decorated themed State Rooms. Next, journey outside and go on a spectacular Illuminated Light Trail through festive gardens, before stopping off at the Christmas Market. 22nd November 2019 – 5th January 2020.

Oxford Christmas Ice Show

Kick off the festive season with Oxford Christmas Ice Show! A popular part of the city’s Christmas calendar, the show features local, national and international skating champions. This year’s theme is yet to be confirmed, but our boutique Oxford hotel is sure that it will be just as enchanting and entertaining as in previous years.

Christmas Shopping at Bicester Village

Pick up some Christmas presents for friends and family (or yourself) at Bicester Village! Located just a 30-minute drive from our boutique Oxford hotel, the designer shopping village is home to 160 boutique shops and the best part? Many of the labels have up to 60% off the recommended retail price, so you’ll be able to get some luxury goodies for a fraction of the cost.
