Family Activities in Oxford

Ice Skating

Oxfords ice rink has recently been refurbished and is a fantastic place to have some fun, or watch a game of ice hockey. All the family are welcome and if you like a boogie there is a special disco session where you can skate to your favourite tunes. Situated near a multistory car park the ice rink is only ten minutes walk from the centre of Oxford or from the railway station.

If you have the need for speed that go and check out Oxfords leading karting circuit. Zoom around the 360 metre circuit overtaking your rivals to get the fastest lap. Perfect for a group of people looking for an exhilarating day out. Remember green means go for it, and being first through the chequered flag means you buy the drinks.

Millet's Farm

A personal favourite Millet's farm is in the beautiful surrounding countryside of Oxford in Frilford. They have a big selection of farm animals from all over the world to see and pet. There is also a childrens play area for those needing a break from the animals on display, as well as a garden centre, and a craft gallery all whist getting the chance to breathe the fresh Oxfordshire country air.
