BLIZT Tour of Oxford - All the Highlights in 60 minutes

Spencer’s Tours of Oxford

Select Option

Highlights

If time is of the essence, this is the tour for you! In just one hour, we'll cover the major landmarks of the city centre, including a full history of both the city and University of Oxford.

The city of Oxford is commonly considered as being divided into two groups: the Town (local residents) and the Gown (students of the University). While I am currently a ‘townie’, I have been awarded a place to study at Oxford this year - and my fiancé is currently studying a DPhil. This gives me a unique perspective on both sides of the community and the city, and I will share it with you in a tour so entertaining and memorable that you will wish you lived here, or your money back!

We’ll cover as much as we can in sixty minutes. Please note that entry fees are not included, though they are not necessary for a fantastic tour. If you'd like to go into colleges or customise the tour in any way, please feel free ping me a message me.

Group size is flexible - £5 per extra person.
