One of the best-known universities in the world and also one of the most beautiful, Oxford is a charming place to spend a tranquil day.

The University of Oxford is made up of 38 separate colleges - an architectural combination that forms a magical and fascinating city filled with students on bicycles riding down narrow streets, peaceful meadows backing up to the river where traditional 'punts' (iconic flat-bottomed, square-bowed boats) glide by, and an assortment of artisan shops.

Enjoy a fully guided stroll through the city streets as your expert local guide tours you through the most beautiful colleges, hidden courtyards and quadrangles, libraries, and Oxford's 'Bridge of Sighs' - a distinctive landmark and highly-coveted photo opp.

Your guide will take you into the awe-inspiring Christ Church College, where you'll see the Great Hall which served as the model for Hogwarts Hall in the famous Harry Potter films. Stand amongst the long wooden tables that seem to stretch to infinity and admire the portraits lining the timber-paneled walls. Imagine yourself surrounded by young magicians eager to begin their lessons in witchcraft and wizardry. The 16th century staircase leading up to the Great Hall was also used in the films, as were the cloisters first built 1000 years ago.

After your guided visit, enjoy plenty of free time to explore the rest of the city at your leisure. Your guide will recommend places for lunch or perhaps a traditional English cream tea before returning to London by train early enough to enjoy an evening back in the capital. Your guide will once again escort you roundtrip on the rails, to ensure that your journey is relaxing and comfortable.
