WOW – something for everyone!

The popular West Oxfordshire Week (WOW) is back this September with a week of free guided walks, mountain bike rides and even a guided horse ride, as well as discounted entry to many of the District’s visitor attractions: the ideal opportunity for local residents to explore their local area.

WOW activities and offers are being co-ordinated by West Oxfordshire District Council working with tourism providers and other organisations.

The Oxfordshire Countryside Access Forum is organising guided walks and rides designed to get local residents out and about enjoying their rights of way – exploring the local footpaths and bridleways. The mountain bike rides are centred on Witney, the walks take place in Charlbury, Chimney Meadows, Great Tew, Rushy Common, Stonesfield and Woodstock, while the guided horse ride is centred around Tackley.

Discounted entry covers many of the West Oxfordshire visitor attractions including ‘2 for 1’ entry to Blenheim Palace, Chipping Norton Local History, Cogges, Combe Mill, Crocodiles of the World, Fairytale Farm, Oxford Bus Museum and the gardens at Rousham. There’s also one free child entry with a full paying adult at Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens.
