Full description
Discover one of the world’s oldest university cities on a full-day tour to Oxford from London, with fexible round-trip transfers by train.

Meet your guide at Paddington Station in the morning to catch the train to the legendary city of graceful university buildings and dreamy spires. Oxford has produced some of the world’s greatest thinkers, from Stephen Hawking to Albert Einstein - via Mr Bean - and during the day you will hear stories of many of the most famous alumni.

Discover where "Lord of the Rings" was dreamt up, and where “The Golden Compass” begins its tale. See location sites from the Harry Potter movies, and learn how the real Oxford “Gowns” (students) engage in strange, archaic traditions that date back centuries.

You will travel out to Oxford as a group, but can return to London at leisure later in the day. Once in Oxford, wander around the college greens and leafy lanes of the city center, exploring such famous sights as the Bridge of Sighs, Bodleian Library, Ashmolean Museum and Christ Church College
