O que você fará

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.

Once COVID-19 closures have been lifted, 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 unavailable. If this changes on the day we will of course incorporate them!

Having attended Oxford University, this gave me a unique and personal insight into this world famous institution beyond what you can read in the guide books. I have been providing tours for over 8 years to visitors from around the world, and have made it a mission to go beyond that dry, boring, historical facts - but to bring across the vibrant, diverse and influential history of the amazing institution. I also now work with other equally passionate guides, to bring you the best Oxford has to show, in a uniquiely authentic way!

Wonderful tour with Trevor- very insightful, fun, engaging and well co-ordinated. We got to know a lot about the footsteps of JRR Tolkein and CS Lewis, it was brilliant to see where literary giants got their inspirations from. Any literature, history or HP buff will love this tour!
