I love sitting down on one of the benches, feeding the geese or sometimes just watching them when they have little ones too. This little place perfect for having a break while running, cycling or just having a walk around the river.

If you are coming to Oxford by boat, you can moor here. The village is on the bus route into Oxford (no.3, and frequent). There is an old church worth visiting. The riverside pub cannot be reached by road, and has all its goods delivered...More

Iffley Lock can be reached by the towpath from Donnington Bridge or from Iffley Village. It is just lovely. Peaceful and quiet with lots of wild fowl. The lock can take you on to Sandford Village along the towpath which is also a gorgeous walk...More

Iffley Lock is on the Thames path but if you live outside Oxford it's a great place to start a walk into town. There's plenty of parking on the street and some decent pubs to eat in when you get back, an it's no more...More

This lock is on the Thames walk and it is very pretty. You pass the old ruins of the monastery and it is a very pleasant walk along the Thames. The lock is well maintained and you can watch the boats in the lock.

I rode here from the centre and then back again. Really pretty, the track is flat and well paved making it a pleasant low impact ride!

We had a lovely time feeding the geese. The babies were very cute. Its a lovely place to sit and chat. Can watch the boats coming in and out of the lock.

The answer is NO as there are steps onto the lock gates and the bridge. The only way is via Donnington bridge where there is a ramp access to the towpath .

It could take a long time by road but if you can find your way along the river you could make it in 40 minutes
