Boats moored at Thrupp Wharf in mid summer

Thrupp Wharf

Thrupp Wharf is one of the most famous canal locations ‘as seen on tv’: many of the “riverside” scenes for the TV series Inspector Morse were filmed here. The canal north from here, just as at Heyford, is outstandingly tranquil through open and wooded countryside.

A visit to Annie’s Tearoom is a must and the perfect way to start your day. You can also hire canoes and kayaks at the wharf from Thrupp Canoe & Kayak Rental.

Thrupp is approximately 20 minutes north of Oxford city centre and is very close to Blenheim Palace. It is just 10 minutes from the A34 and 20 minutes from M40/J10. SAT NAV OX5 1JZ
