Grass and trees are the two most common offenders for pollen allergies during spring and summer months. The Oxford University Parks boast 70 acres alone, while a total of 200 sites are maintained across the city with more than 3,500 trees combined. That’s a lot of pollen.

On average, Oxford sees its hottest temperatures in July, which can encourage pollen. So if you plan to visit high pollen hotspots with a stroll down River Cherwell or a picnic in the park, be sure to check the weather and Your Pollen Pal to save itchy eyes and runny noses.

Hay Fever Friendly Activities in Oxford
