Town & Gown Walking Tours are designed to entertain and inform both local people and visitors to the city.
Ideal for both locals and visitors – tours reveal the eccentric characters & tales associated with Oxford down the centuries, and celebrate the city's rich history.
As featured on BBC1's South Today.
Acquaint yourself with the city's history, from Danish raiding parties (1007) to exams-are-over parties (2007). Learn about Oxford's plagues, riots and eccentricities, and how all of Britain's great universities (plus Cambridge) originated from Oxford's pioneering model. Hear about Oxford's eccentrics, scientists, novelists, Prime Ministers, pioneers, actors, inventors, poets, TV stars, criminals and politicians (there is some inevitable cross-over within the last two categories). Enjoy some fascinating facts that we've mined about Oxford
