Oxford Highlights Tour

Experience Oxfordshire and Oxford Official Walking Tours have launched a brand new walking tour which take visitors to see the city of Oxford’s highlights and iconic locations.

The tour is expected to last about an hour with the aim of allowing visitors to the city who are there on a short trip, the chance to see as much of the attractive city as possible.

The short tour visits key sights in the city centre including the University buildings found in Radcliffe Square, the Bodleian Library, Radcliffe Camera, and the Bridge of Sighs. 

The tour will be informative and entertaining, with guides on hand to answer any questions and make suggestions of other places to see and visit whilst you are in the city. 

In anticipation of a busy summer season, the first Oxford Highlights Tour will commence on the 3rd of June, and will run every Saturday and Sunday until 27th August.

All tours depart from the Oxford Visitor Information Centre, located on Broad Street.

Martin Walker, head of marketing and development at Experience Oxfordshire, commented: “The new Oxford Highlights Tour is designed to appeal to visitors with very limited time in Oxford.”

What else can you do in Oxford?

Besides the new walking tour, visitors to Oxford can take a University and City Tour, Inspector Morse, Lewis and Endeavour Tour, and a C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien Tour. 

Additional Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland tours have also been created to cater for the increase in demand coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book: The Philosopher’s Stone.  

Oxford is a historic city with plenty for groups to do, whether it be sightseeing, punting down the river, perusing the shops, or cycling.
