About Oxford University Walking Tour With University Alumni Guide

Let a guide bring one of the world’s oldest universities to life on an Oxford University walking tour.

Unlike other tours, your guide is a university student with first-hand knowledge of the prestigious campus. Receive information crucial to understanding the institution’s history while exploring in a small group for a personalised experience.

Greet your guide and small group at a central Oxford meeting point at the tour time you selected at checkout. Embark on a walking tour of one of the world’s oldest universities, visiting colleges such as Trinity, All Souls, Hertford, and Merton.

Learn about famous alumni and the history’s striking past from your guide as you stroll the campus. Catch sight of Oxford landmarks such as Radcliffe Camera and the Church of St. Mary. Your guide leads you to the Bodleian Library, where you can marvel at the ancient books.

Other highlights during this Oxford tour include the pub where J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis spent much of their time, as well as filming locations of some of the Harry Potter films.
