What you'll do

This is a tour for everyone, but especially designed for families, with a spotting list for younger children. I offer a unique 75 minute chronological trip through Oxford's colourful history, from the Saxon origins of the town to the present day. If children are on board I'll admit that I am a time traveller! We will see some of Oxford's best-known landmarks and hear about the people and events that made the city and the university world-famous - as well as some of the scrapes I got into when visiting them!

Peter

I am an experienced guide, having toured the streets of Oxford for seven years now. I’ve lived in Oxford for the best part of 25 years and studied at Oxford Brookes University, so I have seen plenty of recent Oxford history first-hand! I am also a trained teacher (CELTA and PGCE) and have two children of my own. I have also been a time traveller for the last 1200 years but try to keep quiet about that!

Where you'll be

Morning tours visit the beautiful Christchurch meadow, where England's first hot air balloon flight took off in 1784 (I had to buy a ticket to watch it!) Afternoon tours have a choice of Christchurch meadow or a nosey into Exeter College where JRR Tolkien and Roger Bannister studied, and we'll visit a secret (sort of) garden with an unexpected view.
