What better way to discover our beautiful city than on foot?

The Official Guided Walking Tours are a fascinating and entertaining way to explore and learn about this unique city, its history, University, famous people and odd traditions.


Oxford Official Guided Walking Tours cover a wide range of topics from an introduction to the city and its University to Inspector Morse, Harry Potter, J.R.R. Tolkien and more.


Private Tours can be tailor-made for individuals or groups and give you the flexibility that you need when visiting our city. You tour can start and finish at any place that suits you within the city centre. You can chose the topics, date and time for your tour. Please click below on Private Tours for more information and how to book.


The Public Tours programme, for any member of the public, includes a selection of themed tours covering a wide range of subjects and run on specific dates. They are offered alongside our regular tours: the University and City Tour, the most popular tour scheduled every day; the Inspector Morse Tour and the Family Tour. All tours depart from the Oxford Visitor Information Centre.
