The City
Poet Matthew Arnold once wrote of Oxford ‘that sweet city with her dreaming spires’ and now, along Oxbridge Tours' famous walking tours through this historic city our expert guides love to show each guest exactly why Arnold found it so inspiring!

Oxford of course is more than just impressive architecture - It has been home to a multitude of famous historical figures, contemporary celebrities and eccentric academics. Once home to 26 prime ministers, 30 international leaders, 47 Nobel Prize winners and over than 50 Olympic medallists; Oxford is the city of CS Lewis, JRR Tolkien, Lewis Carroll and other literary greats. The University and City have featured in several major motion pictures, including the Harry Potter series. (Read more about the best walking tours in Oxford here!)
