‘Under dreaming spires’ is a lyric from a well-known 1960’s pop song – which is a perfect description of one of the world’s most famous university cities. Oxford is steeped in history with its beautiful honey-coloured colleges set in cobblestone streets – and spires that soar skywards! Enjoy the company of a Private Driver Guide who is an enthusiastic Oxford historian to provide you with both a panoramic sightseeing and walking tour experience under the dreamy spires of Oxford.

Among the many highlights in this quintessentially English city are – the Bridge of Sighs on the 13th century Hertford College + New College (founded in 1379) + Christ Church (with Hogwart’s Dining Hall in the Harry Potter movies) + the unigue Radcliffe Camera building + we also visit the University Library and Sheldonian Theatre for further examples of exquisite architecture. Our special excursion will also provide you with a greater understanding of how the college-system which is unique to both Oxford and Cambridge. Learn about the infamous ‘Town and Gown Wars’ + the burning at the stake of 3 16th-century Oxford martyrs including the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Oxford is a movie-makers favourite and so you can expect to tread in the footprints of those actors and actresses of Harry Potter, Bridshead Revisited, Inspector Morse. Numerous literary connections are featured on this trip – as the city is famous as being a place for readers, writers and thinkers! Oxford has inspired many works of fiction from the likes of JRR Tolkein, CS Lewis, Lewis Carroll, and JK Rowling. There are sumptuous venues for luncheon – including an idyllic setting alongside the River Isis. For those who are fairly active then a climb up a 74′ bell tower would be a spectacular way of viewing those dreamy spires!
