Where you'll be

Whilst walking leisurely in the hallowed footsteps of literary giants we shall come across some of Oxford’s classic landmarks, ancient colleges, beautiful meadows and some of the oldest pubs in England. Though college opening times vary throughout the year, I shall endeavour to visit one of Oxford’s splendid colleges during the tour.
