Oxford is small enough that you are better off walking. Then you have to pay to enter Bodelian and you have to pay to enter the castle. Just save your money for entry fees.

If you have the chance don't hesitate to take a tour! We had the most enjoyable tour! Our guide (I believe his name was Richard) was a font of information and had a great sense of humour. The best way to see Oxford!

Only had a day to spend in Oxford so thought we would see everything albeit briefly from the open top bus tour. It was a good decision as Greg who was the guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave us lots of interesting information about the places and buildings of interest in Oxford. There is the opportunity to get on and off the bus too if you wish. Would definitely recommend it especially if Greg is on board!

This was so fantastic! We have never done a sight seeing tour bus before and we had a cold but very sunny day. It was amazing, great commentary through headphones provided and really flexible. Definitely returning with the kids!

Very friendly people, and Greg, the tour narrator, couldn't have been better. Good quick overview of the city, which is very beautiful and historic.
