Oxford Preservation Trust was founded in 1927, and we have been looking after Oxford ever since, by conserving the best of the old and encouraging the best of the new. We are lucky to care for 1,000 acres of land within Oxford’s world-famous views, opening it up for everyone to enjoy. Our variety of self-guided walks, including those in our Oxford Heritage Walks book series, will help you to explore Oxford’s green spaces and hidden heritage.
From cottage to castle, we also care for hidden gems such as our Medieval Merchant’s House in Abingdon, the Painted Room on Cornmarket with its ties to Shakespeare, the ancient stones and award-winning education programme at Oxford Castle, and even a railway Swing Bridge! Throughout the year, we host a range of events, from talks to Conservation Work Parties, as well as Oxford Open Doorsin September, which is your chance to get behind closed doors and discover Oxford’s rich heritage.
