A nice example of a traditional market with something for locals and tourists alike. A good selection of jewellery, bags and clothing plus cafes and food stalls. Definitely worth a look.

Not worth visiting on a Sunday as very few stalls open. Returned on Monday but was quite disappointed. An eclectic mix of stalls. The cake makers/decorators at work was interesting to watch though.

I am NOT saying that you will see them here. But I did, one weekday at noon in May. According to the Court Calendar, they were in Oxford on other business. Apparently, they ducked into the Covered Market because they knew a business owner there,...More

Big indoor market with lots of shops and places to eat. Great to walk around and just browse. Located on the high street in Oxford city centre and easy to find and well worth a look around.

Definitely worth a visit when in Oxford. Lots of interesting one-off stores, I particularly liked the tea store. Plenty of variety if you are looking for something fun to take home as a gift.

The covered market in Oxford has been part of the city for centuries and I believe one of the first markets in England. Unfortunately Oxford City Council seems determined to destroy this wonderful part o history the agenda being to raise rents to a point...More

The covered market is lovely, it's less stall and more little retail units. The units range from cafe to barber and from butcher to celebration cake makers it really is an eclectic mix. It's quirky and definitely worth a look but it won't take you...More
