See some of Oxford’s best-known landmarks – and some hidden gems – and hear about the people and events that made the city and the university world famous. This is a tour for all ages but especially designed for families, with a spotting list for younger children.

Tours leave from outside St Mary’s University Church (High St, Oxford OX1 4BJ, map below). Our travels take us past many of Oxford’s colleges, including the three oldest, as well as an option to take in the beautiful Christ Church meadow with stunning views of the adjoining college.
