Our Oxford tours shows a city of dreaming spires and oozing learning. Take time to explore some of the colleges of Oxford University and learn about their history. Walk in the footsteps of Harry Potter or Lyra (The Golden Compass). See where J.R.R.Tolkein and C.S.Lewis lived and studied. There is something here for everyone.
‘That sweet city with her dreaming spires’ – Oxford is dominated by its historic university buildings, bustling with students, inextricably linked with the great men and women who were educated here. You can visit Christ Church, Oxford’s largest College founded by Henry VIII, which incorporates the Cathedral, or one of the other Colleges.
Nearby is Blenheim, home of the Dukes of Marlborough. This splendid palace was given to the first Duke by a grateful nation after a resounding victory at Blenheim in 1704. Designed by Vanburgh under the watchful eye of the first duchess, friend of Queen Anne, it is set in imposing grounds. Birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, he is buried at nearby Bladon.
