What makes this tour special


Begin your day at London Paddington Station. Escape smoky London and zip across the rolling English countryside to sleepy Oxford. Steeped in history, outstandingly beautiful and famed for its ancient University (founded in 1096).  An institution which has produced some of the greatest minds throughout time. From Oscar Wilde, Edwin Hubble, to Stephen Hawking. 

Meet your friendly guide - a former President of The Oxford Union, a prestigious student position held by numerous former British Prime Ministers. Accompany your guide through the beautiful cobbled streets and squares of the City Centre. Explore the local market, churches,  hidden gardens, quaint shops and ancient pubs. And gain unparalleled knowledge and access to the University and its array of beautiful colleges. Hear of the University's ancient beginnings, strange traditions and invaluable contributions to academia and humanity. This is a very unique opportunity to see Oxford from a less travelled perspective. And a sure highlight to your trip!
