Big indoor market with lots of shops and places to eat. Great to walk around and just browse. Located on the high street in Oxford city centre and easy to find and well worth a look around.

Definitely worth a visit when in Oxford. Lots of interesting one-off stores, I particularly liked the tea store. Plenty of variety if you are looking for something fun to take home as a gift.

Great place to walk around, especially at Christmas time. Loved coming here as a child and still coming back with my own family. A good selection of independent shops, cafes and food stalls, butchers and florists.
