What's on in Oxfordshire today?

The UNESCO World Heritage site of Blenheim Palace in Woodstock boasts an enviable 'What's On' calendar with its Flower Show, transport events, music, sports and even jousting tournament among the highlights. Christmas at Blenheim is another event not to be missed with its Capability Brown gardens turned into a magical wonderland.

Stonor Park may be famous as a historic country house, but is not to be overlooked for family friendly events at Easter, Halloween and other school holidays with plenty of fun activities for kids.

The rural geography of Oxfordshire makes food and drink events a sought after delicacy with local produce in abundance. Highlights include the Wallingford Food Festival (May) and Didcot Food Festival (October).

Henley & its proximity to the River Thames lends itself to a renowned calendar of events including the Henley Royal Regatta (June/July), Henley Festival (July) and Literary Festival (October) with themed boat cruises from Hobbs of Henley proving a unique experience to any day out.

If you're looking for what's on in Oxfordshire on a rainy day, the city of Oxford is steeped in cultural magnificence and is never short of arts events with an eclectic mix of museums throughout the county offering themed exhibitions for a variety of interests.

Staying overnight?

If you're travelling from outside the area for an event in Oxfordshire, there are numerous hotels and other accommodation options to suit your needs.
