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.
Oxford's famous and hidden gems
Oxford’s city centre is a concentration of all you want to know. Within a relatively small area there are hundreds of years of history which we will be experiencing by walking for a couple of hours. We will tour the famous sights and learn about the culture, reasons and history behind what we see. We will hear about the famous Oxford personalities, who shaped the world and learn about their world. We will also discover more hidden places, the ones tourists (and many locals) don’t know about. I will point out the locations of world famous films and the stunning hidden architecture. This is a tour for very small groups as I want you to feel comfortable and able to ask questions. If there is any particular requirement, just ask and I will do my utter best to accommodate you. Most of the times, it would be your own private tour. We will meet outside the Randolph Hotel, on Beaumont Street, opposite the Ashmolean Museum and start our adventure from there. Other things to note My tours are suitable for families and children under 2 come for free. We will be passing many shops during our walk where you can buy drinks and snacks if needed. This tour is wheelchair and child friendly. As the group size is very small you will almost certainly enjoy a fully private tour.
Escape to Oxford Walking Tours
From the Martyrs' Memorial, we meander through the heart of Oxford, passing a number of historic buildings and university colleges, including the 1000 year-old Saxon Tower, the oldest building in Oxford and the finest example of Saxon architecture in England, Carfax, the magnificent Town Hall, Christ Church College and its beautiful Meadow, over ‘Dead Man’s Walk’ into medieval Merton Street where we cut through Logic Lane, past University College, the first of the 39 colleges that make up the University, into the Radcliffe Square, (one of the most sought after landmarks in the UK), view the magnificent Gothic architecture of University Church of St Mary the Virgin, meeting place of the university's first governing body, the Schools Quadrangle, heart of the world-renowned Bodleian Library and seat of the 15th century Divinity School. We pass the Sheldonian Theatre, Christopher Wren’s first major architectural project, the first purpose-built public museum in the Western world and into Broad Street. Our guides are well versed in the history of Oxford and the University from the founding of the city over 1000 years ago to the beginnings of the University in the 13th century, through the industrial revolution to the present day. Where possible we will escort our guests into university and college buildings. Private tours available on request - minimum four (4) persons.
Oxford University Walking Tour Led By University Alumni
In just an hour walk through pivotal moments of human history: from petty and outlandish rivalries to architectural masterpieces with confusing names. See the lamp-post which inspired Narnia and the architecture which has inspired His Dark Materials. Visit the meadows where C.S. Lewis first recounted the story of Alice in Wonderland. 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. Oxford is nothing without its students, and it’s the students who make our walking tours so special. 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? As well as hearing it all from the horse’s mouth, you get to see inside colleges, with highlights including the beautiful Jesus college gardens. This is the real Oxford.

The Oxford Inklings tour-Lewis & Tolkien
Tolkien once described the Inklings club as “An undetermined and unelected circle of friends who gather around C S lewis, our habit was to read aloud compositions of various kinds ....and lengths !" One cannot underestimate how the loud encouragement this circle of friends gave one another helped produce some of the most important and popular books of the 20th century. Not only Fantasy classics such as The Chronicles Of Narnia and The Lord Of The Rings but also important religious works such as Lewis’s “Mere Christianity” a book which has sold over two hundred million copies. At a relaxed pace, we will explore many sites and stories associated with this eclectic group, concentrating not only on C.S. Lewis and J.R.R Tolkien but also some of the other Inklings such as Owen Barfield and a man who was a great influence on Lewis, Charles Williams. Whilst taking in Oxford's stunning architecture we shall wander the grounds of a beautiful medieval College associated with the Inklings and visit The University Church of Saint Marys {Where Lewis gave talks} and The Divinity School {The oldest surviving building for University use including lectures and oral exams} - any entrance fees are included in the price We shall also walk by many of their regular haunts such as The Eagle And Child pub & Eastgate Hotel. I shall also regale great stories of which I have collected over many years Other things to note Comfortable foot wear is highly recommended, roads in Oxford are uneven in places.
Oxford's History through its beautiful stained-glass
Oxford’s intimate scale allows a rare proximity to this art. Religious origins, wealth , and the University's Independence make it hard to think of anywhere else to see such a variety of periods and techniques en situ and within easy reach. When unrest swept through Oxford, architectural elements were sheltered from marauders and zealots. Imagine scholars befuddling and persuading Henry VIII’s Edward VI’s and later Cromwell’s men with theological riddles, providential threats and the odd bribe, thus rescuing stained glass from destruction. Inside New College (1379), we’ll see its cloister (of Harry Potter fame), chapel and hall. The chapel is a feast of mediaeval craftsmanship with an impressive mediaeval composition and a great west window by 18th-century Royal Academician Sir Joshua Reynolds. Modifications to another 18th-century stained glass tell a tale of Victorian prudery. In Wadham, a college built in the protestant era, we see work by Netherlandish Van Linge brothers. Radcliffe square is the heart of the University. Here I’ll introduce important buildings before taking you into the University church of St Mary’s. Stained glass here demonstrates origins of the Oxford movement and the gothic revival. Currents which originated in Oxford and revived the art of stained glass across the world. Includes stop for refreshments

Covid Closures Revised Itinerary: Currently, only the Divinity school film site at the Bodleian library is open. Its £3 per person entry fee is included in your ticket.
