See Jericho from another platform


Visit Jericho aims to attract visitors to Oxford's off-the-beaten-track ‘cultural quarter’

Local architect Paul Southouse, who also owns the Lynrace cocktail bar, has  launched an excellent new online guide to Jericho. Visit Jericho aims to make it easy for tourists to find and experience Jericho with an easy-to-use map and directory. Free for visitors to use and for locals to register places to see, this digital hub is an "all-in-one companion". 

Paul says: “Jericho is a truly unique and special place. It has its own vibrant energy that greets its visitors and those that live here enjoy. There’s always something happening and going on.”

Visit Jericho is a great complement to Jericho Online. It has been produced in colloboration with other local businesses and should enable them to  promote this wonderful corner of Oxford. It has benefited from funding from Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership.

The site is inviting locals to register locations that they own, run, or know something interesting about. Just go to visit-jericho.com

Want (another) perfect day in Jericho. Visit Jericho suggests:
●    Start in the heart of Jericho with coffee, lunch or something sweet at Branca Deli, Café and Garden. Find yourself in a Mediterranean oasis in the hidden garden on a summer’s day, or cosy up inside and people-watch the passersby of Walton Street through the big windows.
●    Stroll up Walton Street and veer left to a sloping road that will take you over the train track to Port Meadow – Oxford’s largest common land, home to diverse plant species and wildlife. Enjoy a peaceful stomp around the meadows, perhaps alongside some grazing horses!
●    Travel south down the canal path and count the colourful houseboats until you make it to the footbridge that will take you back to the backstreets of Jericho. Stop for a game of bowls when you get to the other side if you fancy it, or follow the tall bell tower to St. Barnabas Church, an Anglican Basilica filled with incredible golden panels and rich imagery. 
●    Make your way through the backstreets of Jericho’s classic terraced houses to the Harcourt Arms, a local favourite pub and live music venue. Stop in for a pint and return later for a boogie!
●    Travel through the alleyways to Walton Street again. This time, go south until you happen upon a cluster of shops and cafes opposite Little Clarendon Street. Opera Café is a great place to stop for a refreshment – try one of their famous fresh wraps or classic lentil soup, or opt for coffee and a pastry.
●    Next, head to ronapainting gallery, a hub for creative meetups and host of ever-changing exhibitions of art from near and far. 
●    By now you might be ready for a drink – start heading back up Walton Street towards Popina, a wine and cheese bar boasting more art and an incredible atmosphere. Indulge in a glass of wine and imported Italian delicacies.
●    Finish the night off at Lynrace, Jericho’s atmospheric cocktail bar offering a 1920s vibe – absinthe drips and all! Enjoy the art, music and buzz as the neighbourhood descends to night

Architect Paul Southouse, who designed the revamped St Paul's House that now includes Sainsbury's. 

Rona Marsden, of the ronapainting gallery says: “Visit Jericho will certainly make it easier for visitors to find this lovely creative area full of independents. The website is a perfect way to introduce this unique community full of independent businesses to visitors, who might stick to the centre of Oxford and miss it!”
