Oxford University Tour With Alumni
We will start with a whirlwind overview of Oxford as the central player in 1,000 years of British history, and giving guests an understanding of how the sprawling institution operates before embarking on the tour. Navigating down the windy alleyways we will get an insiders take on the little known viewing angles that bring across the drama of the world famous architecture in this city. With striking spires and imposing buildings, we will cover how these influenced Tolkien, C S Lewis, along with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. We will enter one of the oldest Colleges at Oxford, renowned for its beautiful gardens, before heading into one of the most famous Library's in the world - responsible for over 13 million books. Capping this off we will cover a Harry Potter film site, along with why the most powerful religious figure England has ever seen, was burnt alive in the centre of Oxford, on what is now such a nondescript part of road you could easily miss it. Please note: Colleges and the Library can shut without notice and currently they are available as of August 2021. If this changes on the day we will of course incorporate them - if we are not able to offer any access, we will offer up the option of a full refund.

We will see some of Oxford's best-known landmarks and hear about the people and events that made the city and the university world-famous - as well as some of the scrapes I got into when visiting them! Other things to note During off season I'm happy to adapt timing of tours, please do enquire! Travel around Oxford can get a bit congested so please don't hesitate to text or call me if you have any problems and I will do my best to adapt when possible. There are cobbled streets on the tour.

For those looking beyond Harry Potter, Oxford has also produced numerous famous graduates, along with other notable academics. Oxford University focused information will be provided throughout the tour, though the extent of it will be tailored to each groups requirements. Suitable for Potterheads of all ages!
Pub and City Tour
Oxford Is an amazing city and a chat over a drink in a couple of the oldest pubs in town makes getting to know it all that much more enjoyable. We will meet in the late afternoon and I will show you the iconic sites and tell you about the history, the personalities and events that influenced the world. With as many pubs as colleges in the city centre, there is ample choice of where to sit and absorb the centuries of information. Try a local brew, drink where medieval stables used to be, contemplate the Saxon city wall, watch the quirkiness of ancient establishments, sit where famous literature personalities sat. All within a short walking distance from one another, you will see historical monuments, world-famous buildings and sites where world-shaping events took place. Listen to the legends, the facts and the fantasies hidden around every corner of this magical place while relaxing by the fire or in the garden of pubs that are hidden gems.

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.

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?
