An independent, family-run games shop based on Oxford’s High Street since 1997, they sell traditional and vintage table-top games including chess, backgammon, mah jong and go, alongside a wide range of board games: family classics, newcomers, award-winners and hard-to-find independent, niche games. They also stock a wide range of puzzles, jigsaws and playing cards.

Hoyles of Oxford

Oxford is a gorgeous city, full of history and tradition (just like our games!), and with such a wealth of great independent businesses to choose from. It’s a real pleasure to be here, sharing our knowledge and love of games.

– Phillip and Emily Scaysbrook, Owners

Our favorite shop on the High Street, and like ourselves, the type of shop people expect to find in Oxford. Their selection of games both new and vintage guarantees you will always find something for both kids and big kids alike.
