Oxford wouldn’t be Oxford without its artistic and intellectual pursuits, so why not embrace that by catching an art film at an independent cinema? Take your cinema date up a notch by opting for the stylish atmosphere of The Ultimate Picture Palace over your local cinema complex. Maybe you’ll end the evening in an impassioned discussion about the film you’ve just seen!
- Take a picturesque riverside walk
On a sunny day, grab a coffee (or a prosecco!) and go on a wander along the river Thames or one of Oxford’s many canals. Take in the scenic surroundings whilst getting to know your new match for a picture perfect first date. You could even take them punting or on a rowboat on the river should it take your fancy!
- Catch some live music in one of Oxford’s many music venues
Want to show your first date a good time? Oxford has a number of music venues, from tiny bars to big concert halls. And who doesn’t love live music? Sandy’s Piano Bar is a quirky wine bar with live pianists playing crowd pleasers. You’ll be twirling your date around the dancefloor in no time!

The Oxford Botanic Garden is 400 years old, making it the oldest in the UK.

No matter the season, there’s plenty to see, so why not connect with your date whilst connecting with nature?
