Christmas in Oxford
Oxford Christmas parties & breaks
From the twinkling lights of the Christmas markets on Broad Street to the sound of carols soaring from the cathedral, there's no place quite like Oxford to enjoy the festive season.
Just 3 miles from the city centre, De Vere Oxford Thames blends modern style and medieval character to set the stage for all kinds of Christmas celebrations; from festive dinners and classic party nights to Christmas lunches and private dining.
Here you'll find a collection of unique event spaces, filled with character and history, along with seasonal menus curated by our Executive Chef and a great team of people behind the scenes.
