Greet your guide and small group at a central Oxford meeting point at the tour time you selected at checkout. Embark on a walking tour of one of the world’s oldest universities, visiting colleges such as Trinity, All Souls, Hertford, and Radcliffe. Learn about famous alumni and the history’s striking past from your guide as you stroll the campus.

Catch sight of Oxford landmarks such as the Bridge of Sighs and the Church of St. Mary. Your guide leads you to the Bodleian Library, where you can marvel at the ancient books.

Other highlights during this Oxford tour include the pub where J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis spent much of their time, as well as filming locations of some of the Harry Potter films.
