Circular Walks near Christmas Common

Enjoy a choice of circular walks on the edge of the Chiltern Hills at Christmas Common above Watlington. All the walks start and finish at the National Trust car park on Watlington Hill. Choose from 2.5 mile, 3 mile or 6 mile routes or combine all three for a longer walk.

You'll enjoy some spectacular views over the Vale of Oxford. The walks pass through small hamlets, woods, parkland and fields. Refreshment options include the Fox and Hounds pub in Christmas Common, pubs, shops and cafes in Watlington. Or why not bring a picnic to enjoy on Watlington Hill?


Some paths can be muddy in places. There are some stiles on Walks 2 and 3 and some paths on these walks are steep. Walk 1, which is 2.5 miles, has no stiles and is fairly level.
