This was a great tour of the university's and city's major historical buildings. Our guide, Trevor, had some great and exciting stories to tell and we were so engaged we didn't feel the time pass or get tired at all. I would recommend this your with an alumnus guide specifically for prospective students. It will make a difference and you'll find answers for some of the questions you're curious about!

Charlie was our guide, he was full of facts and got the visitors to answer come questions. The 2 hour tour was very good, we went behind the scenes to see inside a college, where they would eat, sleep and drink. We learnt about the history between colleges and individuals, past and present. We learnt how some books got written, and seeing the objects outside these writers homes which were included in their stories they wrote. Thank you Charlie for an enjoyable walking tour
