What to Expect

Join a university-educated guide, with years of experience and local knowledge of Oxford City and colleges, and explore the dreamy spires of one of the oldest univerities in the world on a 90-minute walking tour.

Go inside some the city’s most historic colleges, such as New College, founded in 1379 and more recently seen in the Harry Potter films and television productions of Inspector Morse and Lewis.

Founded in 1314, Exeter College is another favorite on most tours, while Hertford College, with its romantic façade and Bridge of Sighs, is instantly recognizable from “Brideshead Revisited.” College opening times can sometimes restrict entrance, but all tours go to the University Library to provide a greater understanding of the collegiate system unique to Oxford and Cambridge.

Discover famous alumni who studied and taught at the university, including the infamous Dr Spooner, whose portraits hang in New College Dining Hall and whose name is given to the playful linguistic phenomenon of spoonerisms.

Very dissapointing

2.0/5 stars

Our Guide Stuart was very disappointed that he had only 5 people to guide. This reflected in his enthusiasm for the tour. He kept repeating I need a crowd. A lot of the places we were to visit were closed and I think that he should have done his homework and let us know before we started.
