Highlights

Test your spell-craft & knowledge of all things Potter with our guide. This tour is a new listing on here, so it has no reviews yet but we have hundreds of 5 star reviews for our existing Harry Potter Oxford tour products already published here. Please join our tour to find out all about how Oxford inspired Hogwarts and JK Rowling's influences and loads of insights about the actors, the producers and of course about Oxford too.

This tour includes entry to arguably one of the most appealing and one of the oldest and likely most haunted colleges called New college. At New college, you can marvel at the gorgeous medieval dining hall, chapel, cloisters, quadrangle and the medieval wall of the city. In the cloisters and garden is where several scenes were filmed in the Goblet of Fire,

The tour includes £8 entry fee to New college + £2.50 entry to Divinity school, as & when Divinity school is open.

Additional Information

  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking, unless booked within 4 hours of travel. In this case confirmation will be received as soon as possible, subject to availability
  • Wheelchair accessible
  • Please arrive 5 minutes early for your tour at our meeting point. If you arrive more than 5 minutes later than the scheduled tour, then you will likely forfeit and lose your booking as it interrupts the guide and other customers, if we are trying to find you after a guide has started and left the meeting point.
  • INFO FOR DRIVERS AND PARKING:
  • If you are driving, then please allow extra 30-60 minutes over whatever time you think it will take you to get here. Oxford is NOT car friendly and it is congested roads and hard to find parking spaces....unless you park at the sign posted 'park and rides' on edge of town on any major road into the city and hop on their buses into city centre. The park and ride buses leave every 15 or every 30 minutes and take anything from 10 min to 30 min (depending on traffic) to reach city centre. So if you are going to drive, then please assume you should be aiming to park your car about one hour before your tour starts.
  • PUBLIC TRANSPORT:
  • We actually recommend instead using the much faster and reliable train services but again please aim to arrive about an hour or earlier before your tour starts as trains can be delayed and the train and coach station are about 15 minutes walk from our meeting point. There is also the coach service from London called the Oxford Tube which leaves every half hour or more but it can take much longer than its advertised 105 minute journey time. It drops you off either at High street Oxford or Gloucester Green coach station. It's quicker to ask to get off on High street near Carfax tower, then it's a 10 minutes walk to Broad street.
  • Stroller accessible
  • Service animals allowed
  • Near public transportation
  • Infant seats available
  • Most travelers can participate
  • This is a private tour/activity. Only your group will participate
