St Clement's is a district in Oxford, England, on the east bank of the River Cherwell. Its main road, St Clement's Street (often shortened to just "St Clement's"), links The Plain (a roundabout) near Magdalen Bridge with London Place at the foot of Headington Hill at the junction with Marston Road to the north.
The road continues east as Headington Road and is designated the A420. At the point where St Clement's reaches South Park, there is a junction with Morrell Avenue to the southwest. There are several restaurants in the street.
The artist William Turner lived here with his wife Elizabeth Ilott after their marriage in 1824.
