Full description
Enjoy a walking tour visiting inside Christ Church College, to see and hear about both Harry Potter and Lewis Carroll’s legendary characters, such as Alice and the Mad Hatter. Book in advance to beat the queues at Christ Church, Oxford's most popular tourist attraction. 

Enjoy views onto Christ Church Meadows on the borders of the rivers Cherwell and Isis. See longhorn cattle graze and the dreamy spires of Merton College and Corpus Christi.

Access permitting, you will also see inside another Harry Potter film site, the Divinity school at the famous Bodleian Library, one of the oldest libraries in Europe. 

Find out all about the history behind the story of 'Alice in Wonderland' and the making of Hogwarts on this tour. Available daily at 10:30 AM, except Sundays (as Christchurch is closed on Sunday mornings).

On any dates when Christ Church may be closed, this tour will visit the inside of New College, another great Hogwarts film site, instead. If this happens you also have the option to reschedule for a different tour or a different date.

Important information
Know before you go
• If you book at the last minute the local partner can still run the tour but cannot guarantee that you will skip the line
• In high season online tickets can sell out 1 week in advance so the tour will have to queue to buy tickets on the door
• Divinity School (the second film site at the Bodleian library) can close suddenly with no advance notice so entrance to the Divinity school can never be guaranteed
• Divinity School is always closed on graduation dates, which are August 2 and 3, September 14, 27, and 28, November 1, 2, and 9, 2019, and January 18, February 29, and May 2 and 9, 2020
• There is no tour on December 25
