Private Oxford tour from London

Oxford: ‘sweet city with her dreaming spires’, medieval colleges and a skyline pierced with gothic points and pinnacles. There are many magnificent university buildings for us to see during my guided walk. Through narrow streets and ‘Broad’ we’ll see some of Oxford’s great college buildings and we’ll also visit a venerable university institution during our memorable day tour out of London.

Together we’ll explore the city’s history, stunning architecture (Bodleian Library, Sheldonian Theatre, Radcliffe Camera and more), and the people – lots of people – who were made by Oxford and helped make its name: Wren, Hawksmoor, Carroll, Tolkein; Alice and Potter!

We’ll also visit Christ Church, one of Oxford’s largest and most accessible colleges. This is a paid attraction, but worth the price of admission. Its Great Hall was inspiration for Hogwarts, and some Harry Potter scenes were filmed where we’ll walk. The 12th century, gothic splendour of Oxford’s Christ Church Cathedral is also housed within the walls of this huge college.


  • 08.30: Meet at your hotel/accommodation, drive to Oxford.
  • 10.30: Arrive Oxford.
  • 14.30: Leave Oxford.
  • 16.30: Return to London hotel.

I’m your driver and private guide and I’ll be explaining as we explore. Walking is integral to this tour. There are lots of stops for photo opps. I’ll talk as we walk and when we’re up close. Time spent viewing a location varies from one or two minutes to a few minutes.

We’re always close to coffee shops and places for bathroom breaks and our lunch location can be decided as we tour.

Having a driver/walking guide like me conducting your tour in a London taxi is super-efficient and will help to make the day enjoyable and memorable.

Tickets will be purchased on entry to Christ Church (College and Cathedral).
