What to expect

Whether you're a fan of classic literature, film and history or you prefer something with a magical twist, this tour is sure to have something for you! You'll follow in the footsteps of Lewis Carroll as you wind your way through the streets of Oxford, learning more about his beloved characters. Or you could enter the wizarding world of Harry Potter and visit the famous filming locations as you hear all about their history.

On this private tour, your guide will lead you through the streets, regaling you with the fascinating history of the buildings you pass and telling you how Oxford has grown to be the university hub it is today. Not only will you be surrounded by gorgeous architecture, but you'll also pass beautiful Christ Church Meadows on the borders of the rivers Cherwell and Isis and admire the local nature.

At Christ Church, you'll see the impressive staircase where Harry Potter first met Draco Malfoy, the cloisters featured as part of Hogwarts throughout the series, and the Dining Hall that inspired the Great Hall. Christ Church is also Oxford's cathedral, so you'll visit that when it's open. Then you'll head to the Divinity School film site, where they filmed multiple scenes. The Divinity School is the only part of the Bodleian Library, which permits entry to walking tours so you can step into the Hogwarts library and feel quite at home.

This tour will keep you spellbound and leave you full of magical knowledge.

The tour includes almost £20 in entry fees to Christ church college, plus as & when open, also visits inside the Divinity school film site at the Bodleian Library.

MINIMUM 2 ADULTS required to make any booking.
