Additional Information

  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • These tours MUST START ON TIME as we pre purchase entry tickets for fixed entry times at Christchurch. If you arrive after the tour has started, you will unfortunately therefore lose your booking. 

    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.

    IMPORTANT NOTICE IN CASE OF UNFORESEEN PARTIAL OF FULL CLOSURES:
     

    We do publish known Christchurch closures on this website page & we will advise of any closures at the time of booking or before the tour but occasionally some closures are last minute. In this event, our policy is either the guide can substitute entry for Christchurch to another college such as eg New college (also a Hogwarts film site). Alternatively, you may opt to reschedule your tour onto another date or to instead join one of our other tours running the same date such as the Oxford cycle tour of food tour (which cost approximately same).

    REFUNDS POLICY:
    If you opt to book a foreign language tour, this may be possible if you give us adequate advance notice of at least 24 hours. If we cannot offer a tour in a foreign language, then you will be refunded or invited to join the tour in English with any cost difference refunded.  

    NOTICE:
    While very rare, all three film sites are private institutions of the university and if they so choose to, they may close their doors without any notice. If for reasons beyond our control, we cannot enter either New college or Christchurch film site on your tour, then we will offer you either a full refund upon request or the opportunity to reschedule onto the next given date that you are available.

    SPECIAL OFFER FOR OXFORD UNIVERSITY STAFF & STUDENT ID CARD HOLDERS:

    We can offer you one free guest ticket for your guest, when you book, on condition that you advise us of this request directly when you make the booking and you must bring and show your ID card to the guide.
