Oxfordshire Way

Downloadable maps and directions for this 66 mile walk from the Cotswolds to the Chilterns.

The Oxfordshire Way winds through Oxfordshire from Bourton-on-the-Water in Gloucestershire to the banks of the River Thames in Henley. The route passes through a mosaic of contrasting landscapes and settlements including two areas of outstanding natural beauty; the pretty rolling Cotswold Hills and the Chilterns; plus some fascinating countryside in between.

There are a number of stiles along the route.

We have developed free downloadable maps and directions for the whole of the Oxfordshire Way. You can either download a very large sized file containing all of these maps together, or you can download maps for particular sections of the route.

Maps for each stretch of the route also show the location of points of historical and geological interest. If you are interested in these, you can download the accompanying points of interest file for that section. Alternatively, you can download a large sized file that contains points of interest for the whole route.

Pub logos shown on the maps by the yellow pint glass are purely an indication that a pub exists at this point at the time of map production.  The maps do not show every pub in the area indicated nor recommend those that are shown. The council has not tested every pub along the route!
