    Gloucester Green on Oxford audio tour Know your Oxford: tour with AR for new and prospective students

    You're now entering Gloucester Green. If it's a Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday, then you're about to walk through a busy market. I advise you to walk right through the middle of it, as there are masses of stalls selling delicious food from all over the world.

    You're aiming for the opposite corner. That's the corner diagonally across the Green. So it's ahead and to the left.

    If there's no market today, let me give you a little taster... And remember you're heading for the opposite corner, over to your left.

    MONTAGE:
    José: Have you tried this before?
    Boy: No
    J: So it’s your first time? You’re going to eat it now?
    B: Yeah, yeah.(Takes food)
    J: How is it? You like it? I can tell you what the judges said.
    Auntie Lula: His food is yummy.
    José: It is a good market.
    Ash: Craft market, antiques, and the fruit market...
    José: Where you can find food from everywhere in the world.(Cherries out the front now! £2.50!)
    Yannos: I have of course, everybody knows, the beef goulash.
    Sri Lankan: Chicken curry...
    Greece: Halloumi with a veg
    Violet: every spoon is with character. Just like us.
    Yannos: This is the best place to be... I believe that every good country representing itself with all the freshest, healthiest food... everything prepared on site. Fresh. Can’t beat that.
    Lula: (mwah!)

    Ok, hopefully you're through the market now. If you lost your bearings in all the excitement, make sure you leave Gloucester Green via the path next to the board game cafe called Thirsty Meeples. The path you want has a large, white security camera directly above it.
