Overview

Visit the stunning buildings of the University, dating back 900 years up to modern day. We will learn how the University works, what makes Oxford unique and the history of the town itself.

We will visit at least one College or University building (depending on availability). I will show you some of the beautiful green spaces Oxford has to offer, as well as the varied architecture.

Oxford has a long and varied history that I look forward to sharing with you. I love telling the amusing stories and strange traditions we have here.

Hannah created a custom tour just for me which was fantastic. She’s incredibly knowledgeable about Oxford and each of the Colleges. It was wonderful to get a look at some of the buildings and hear the history. She was even able to point out things I would’ve missed trying to tour on my own like the date 1588 carved into the timber of one of the buildings. I highly recommend Hannah!

Rather than go on a physical tour, Hannah provided a tailored talk to a village society I am involved in. Many of the members are elderly and with limited mobility so, instead, Oxford came to us! We met to discuss the contents and format of the talk, and then we were provided with a very interesting and engaging presentation which was extremely enjoyable.

Oxford Ghost Tour. Had an absolutely brilliant experience with Hannah. Fascinating tales of Oxford ghosts and spooky stories. Her local knowledge is amazing, and I'm looking forward to trying one her other tours next time I am in Oxford. Thank you for a fun evening.
