Oxford in the Autumn

Oxfordshire is one of the most beautiful areas in the United Kingdom during autumn and here are the most exciting to do in Oxford this season.

Oxfordshire is one of the most beautiful areas in the United Kingdom during autumn. So many different colours of nature, so much life in the city, so many events to take part in. In today’s article we are going to tell you about the most exciting things to look forward to in Oxford in the autumn.

Student Parties

The end of September and beginning of October are usually some of the most lively months in Oxford. It’s due to the students coming to Oxford uni. Of course, that means nightlife and student parties are on, so if you are after some good fun with young and bright people, this is certainly a place to consider. You can find anything from karaoke nights, to bingo, to silent disco, to long clubbing hours with great DJ mixes.


Oxford is a popular place for concerts and musical festivals during autumn. If you are a fan of classical music you can also find many events to attend. The genres are absolutely diverse and there’s something for everyone.


Cultural events have always been on focus in Oxford. It’s a town with so much history and clearly defined affinity towards arts. In the autumn months there are numerous arts exhibitions in Oxford you can attend.

Things to do with the family

Thinking of bringing the kids for a weekend away in Oxford? Great idea! There are so many things you can do with children here in the autumn. Late September and October are full of festivals, markets and fairs. Most of them are family-friendly and provide entertainment for young and old.

You can arrange a visit to a local farm, where children can see the animals and how food is produced. In some places you may be able to take them for horse riding or gardening activities.

City Tours

You probably know that a huge part of the Harry Potter movies were filmed in Oxford. You can book a Harry Potter tour to show you all the iconic places you’ve seen on screen. And doing it during autumn may just make you feel like you are going back to Hogwarts yourself.

Another place you should visit during autumn while in the Oxfordshire area is the Blenheim Palace. It’s a spectacular place to see in all seasons, but the colours of autumn makes the garden breath-taking. It’s an attraction you won’t be able to see in just one day, so we recommend coming here for a long weekend. Or why not for a small getaway during the half term holiday in October?

You must see Oxford in the autumn! It’s so beautiful and full of amazing energy. If you are looking for a good, convenient and peaceful accommodation, we can help! Have a look at the SA Oxford properties and let’s book you in for your unforgettable autumn experience in Oxfordshire.
