Thrupp Lake, Abingdon, Oxford

Thrupp Lake, Abingdon, Oxford
21 August 2021

Thrupp Lake is magical and one of the hidden treasures of Oxfordshire, that unless you have grown up in the area, you probably wouldn’t know.. The colours are spectacular and swans glide gracefully beneath the trees with a multitude of birds/sea fowl (see our video on IG HERE and HERE. Walking around the lake (around 1 mile) and hearing its birdsongs was  just so peaceful and serene. My toddler son enjoyed watching the swans but also throwing stones into the lake, watching the ripples and they playing a game as to which one made the biggest splash. It turned into a STEM experiment (Home education, haye)

There is a wooden boardwalk across the North West corner that gives you the chance to walk over water. There is also a  bird hide, with a green roof that blends in to the surroundings providing an opportunity to watch and photograph any skittish birds without disturbing them (we didn’t get that far though as my son just wanted to stay close to the water).

Verdict: The ducks and swan were sometimes very near the viewing area, sometimes quite far away, so don’t go here purely with the intention of duck/ swanfeeding etc, but if you want to have a nice, peaceful, beautiful walk, then this is your place!

🎟 Free
🗺 Thrupp Lane, Radley, Abingdon, OX143NG
🚘 Free parking on roadside/ grass verges. It was not easy to find and I almost gave up at one point, but I am glad I didn’t. Basically, just keep going, past round the corner of what looks like a construction site, until you reach a private road. The Lake is not visible from the road but you will begin to see parked cars. Just park somewhere here and walk  to your left (see the first picture). It will take you to the lake
🚻 No toilets on site
🍕 No refreshments
🧺 Picnics unlikely
🦽Buggy accessible in parts but terrain is bumpy and muddy
🐕 Dogs allowed
