Oxford Tour would be an ideal getaway from London. Today you will depart from London on a pleasant 2-hour journey to Oxford. Oxford is known worldwide for the University of Dreaming Spires and its place in history.
On the Thames some sixty miles west of London, Oxford’s ancient university city lies. Its colleges cover a lot of the city centre with their gardens and quads. It has been the home of royals and scholars for over 800 years and has become a well-established city since the ninth century, even though people have long been known to have lived in the area.
The city is a lively cosmopolitan city nowadays and although still at its old university, it also has a growing high-tech community. Many companies operate in and around the city, either in one of the scientific and commercial parks or in one of the various residential areas. Today you will explore yesterday’s and today’s popular & ancient city together.

Oxford Day Tour
Upon arrival at the city centre, you will visit College Christ Church -The School of British Prime Ministers- founded by Henry VIII, where the Chapel of the College is doubled as the Cathedral of the city. The Grand Hall of the Harry Potter was filmed in three different spots. On the walls there are portraits of alumni–Prime Ministers, churchmen and philosophers; and Alice in Wonderland writer Lewis Carroll was teaching at the university. Alternatively, we may visit New College, nestled beneath the old city wall and still housing some medieval glass, where the old mulberry tree is surrounded by the cloisters of the College. It’s time to visit Oxford Museum where you can hear and see all about beautiful Oxford. The displays in the Museum of Oxford include original artefacts, treasures gathered from Oxford colleges and period room reconstructions, from prehistoric times onwards. After the museum you will have a walking tour in the historic centre. During this tour you will also see Oxford Castle and its prisons from outside. You will also be informed about other universities dating back 700 – 800 years. Your final stop is Grand Covered Market where you can enjoy the traditional way of shopping in the heart of city. Try some regional delicious food in this market. After some personal free time, we will return London.
