Uncomfortable Oxford - Walking Tour

Uncomfortable Oxford Tours

Select Option


Learn about the 'uncomfortable' side of Oxford!

Our tours are run by students from the university, with the goal of creating more discussions about difficult histories. As historians, we have researched and designed content which encourages engagement with topics which are often uncomfortable to discuss. Participants learn about Oxford's approaches to global debates like: repatriation, reparations, decolonisation, class and gender barriers, and wealth disparity.

Uncomfortable Oxford Tours are an intellectually engaging alternative to the general tours of the city. Join us!
