View (from the outside); The Weston Library, The Bridge of Sigh's, The Bodleian Library, The Radcliffe Camera, University Church of St Mary The Virgin and many of the colleges.
During your walk, your guide will delight you with the stories and people that have shaped Oxford over the centuries and explain about student life.
We aim to take you inside a college or University building which is included in the cost and subject to availability. Since Oxford is first and foremost a working University, this may not always be possible.
End your tour at Magdalen Bridge where your private punt will be waiting to take you along the River Cherwell with a stunning view of Christ Church. 1.45 hour walking tour and 30 mins punting (with a chauffeur!).
Tour is for upto 5 people.
Harrods of London installed a novelty in 1898: the world's first true escalator (to be fair, an inclined moving belt with metal bars for traction did make its debut two years earlier on Coney Island). The oddness of a moving staircase so unnerved many shoppers that employees were stationed near it with smelling salts and cognac to help revive those overcome with fear.
