What’s on in Oxfordshire around Spring time?

There are plenty of things to do in the region this Spring. When it comes to Oxfordshire hotels, the Oxford Abingdon Hotel is ideally located to explore the area.

Whether you are looking for a day with the family, some literary inspiration or a nice spring walk to see the flowers slowly blossoming, the Oxfordshire region is not short of events and activities. Here is a small selection of events that are taking place in the area during the next few months.


Have some Easter Weekend Fun at Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace is an unmissable place to visit when you wander around our beautiful region. This Easter, Blenheim Palace goes all out with an exciting weekend of fun and activities. Between the 30th March and 2nd April, the Pleasure Gardens will become the main attraction with shows, interactive activities (think bouncy castles and face painting) and plenty of food for all the family. The Palace is also hosting their first ever Giant Egg Hunt Challenge, how exciting!


Food for thought at the Oxford Literary Festival

Of all the festivals happening in Oxford throughout the year, the Oxford Literary Festival is one not to be missed. This week-long festival turns the city into a celebration of Literature from the 17th to the 25th March and will see more than 100 events with words of fiction, poetry, travel, humour, and much more.


Take a Spring Walk at Basildon Park

Basildon Park is a stunning estate located less than 30 minutes away from the hotel and there is no better time than spring to see the flowers blossom in the beautiful parkland surrounding the mansion. Choose between one of the 4 walks available and wander around the estate on the lookout for daffodils and bluebells.


Challenge yourself at the Spring Monster 2018

If you are on the lookout for a sportier event, join the MonsterRace on the 28th of April. Cornbury Park is hosting the 5th edition of the famous obstacle course and mud event. Located on the edge of the Cotswolds and just over half an hour from the Oxford Abingdon Hotel, this event takes great pride in providing a challenging yet fun day out for all.


Activate your taste buds at Blenheim Palace Food Festival

On the last weekend of May, Blenheim Palace welcomes its annual Food Festival to delight all the foodies amongst us. Wander around the 120 stalls and get inspired by the artisan food, the international cuisine or the sugary treats. From the 26th to the 28th of May, your palate is going to be transported to a very tasteful world full of flavours! Don’t forget to book your tickets so you can enjoy a full day of demonstrations and food tasting.
