Enter the fictional world of the author Colin Dexter and his famous detectives as you visit sites where scenes were filmed in the old city center. Start at the stone monument of the Martyrs' Memorial outside Balliol College, and continue to venues such as the luxury Randolph Hotel and the traditional White Horse pub.

    Our guide Leigh was very informed on her subjects and tied in relevant information from episodes of Morse,Lewis and Endeavour. A very pleasant lady with a good sense of humour,happy to answer questions asked including ones about the colleges. Timing was spot in,not too long but enough to give a good overview for fans of the show(s).

    Elizabeth, our guide, was outstanding. She made the tour special. She knew the colleges, their history, their facilities and their gardens in depth as well as the Morse, Lewis and Endeavour episodes and where scenes were filmed. She tied all together in an informative, engaging and entertaining way. By giving each of us audio headsets for the tour she was able to keep all of us alert and engaged with facts and stories. I’ve already suggested this tour to friends and strongly recommended they ask for a tour being guided by Elizabeth.
