LIVE THE HISTORY
In just an hour walk through pivotal moments of human history: from petty and outlandish rivalries to architectural masterpieces with confusing names. See the lamp-post which inspired Narnia and the architecture which has inspired His Dark Materials. Visit the meadows where Lewis Caroll first recounted the story of Alice in Wonderland. Marvel at some of the world’s greatest examples of Gothic and Baroque architecture. Inspiring, baffling, and downright outrageous: Oxford is a city full of stories waiting to be told.
THE STUDENT’S STORY
Oxford is nothing without its students, and it’s the students who make our walking tours so special. All our tour guides are either graduates of or current students at the University of Oxford who combine their personal experiences of the city with their deep passion for its history, architecture, and stories to provide a one-of-a-kind tour. Combining a deep passion for the city’s history and architecture with the knowledge you hear all about what the students really get up to – from BOPS to secret societies and which all-night library permits outside snacks. Which college is the poshest one, and which is the oldest? Which one has traditions designed only to mock the traditions of other colleges? As well as hearing it all from the horse’s mouth, you get to see inside colleges, with highlights including the beautiful Jesus college gardens. This is the real Oxford, experienced as a student, through busy streets and college grounds.
Our classic 90-minute Oxford tour covers some of the following highlights: Balliol College, Trinity College, The Sheldonian Theatre, Hertford College The Bodleian Library, The Radcliffe Camera, All Souls, Jesus College, Oriel College, Merton College, Exeter College, and Christchurch Meadows, sites of literary inspiration, and more…
This is a shared walking tour conducted in English. All colleges entered on our classic tour route are included in your ticket price, however, college availability does vary from day to day. If there are specific colleges you wish to visit please book a private bespoke Oxford walking tour.
