What to expect

If you love classic British literature, film and history, then this tour is the one for you. Why not take a trip down the rabbit hole and follow in the footsteps of Lewis Carroll through the narrow streets of Oxford, learning about his fantastical characters such as the Mad Hatter and Alice? Or perhaps Harry Potter is your thing, in which case you'll visit famous filming locations from the infamous wizarding franchise. Your guide will lead you through the streets, regaling you with the fascinating history of the buildings you pass, and what has led to Oxford becoming such an esteemed university city.

Not only will you be surrounded by gorgeous architecture, but you'll also pass beautiful Christ Church Meadows on the borders of the rivers Cherwell and Isis where longhorn cattle graze and you can see the dreamy spires of Merton College and Corpus Christi. From the Great Hall at Christ Church College, you'll head to the Bodleian Library, also the Hogwarts library and then on to the Divinity School which is used for several sets in the Harry Potter films. This tour will keep you captivated and leave you full of magical knowledge.
