COVID-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

This tour promises to show you many of the sights visited by Inspectors Morse, Lewis, and Endeavour on the hit TV show, which has been filmed in approximately 100 locations in Oxford. You will be shown several of these sites. You will also go inside the Divinity School at the Bodleian library if it is open. 

This tour is obviously aimed at fans of Inspector Morse, Lewis, Endeavour but if your 'better half' is not a big fan, don't worry as you will be introduced to some general insights about the university of Oxford and the history and traditions of each college you visit.

You will thus gain an insight into Oxford city and university heritage too. You will look in depth at John Dexter's characters and in particular reveal insights into his vision for his characters.
