This panorama was taken from the top of Magdalen Bridge looking south. The Botanic Gardens of Oxford are just to the right of the bridge, and there are a number of punts on the River Cherwell which flows under the bridge. The punting station, form where tourists and students alike can hire punts, is on the north side of the bridge. A number of punts fanning out from the bank are visible here on the satellite view of this Google map. Also on the north side is Magdalen College.

Magdalen bridge in Oxford crosses the River Cherwell and links the High Street with The Plain and the main routes out of Oxford to the southeast and northeast. The bridge is next to Madgalen College. On the morning of the 1st of May, called 'May Morning' (May Day), choristers sing madrigals from the top of Magdalen College Tower from 6.00am (seen to the left of the bridge in this panoramic picture). Students have a reputation for jumping off Magdalen Bridge into the river Cherwell shortly after this, often climbing barriers to do so after a heavy nights drinking. There are injuries and broken limbs every year.


From the A40 northeast of Oxford, take the A420 into Oxford. If coming from the southeast, follow the A4158 from the A4142.
