Audio tours

The Undergraduate Admissions Office have created six walking tours to give prospective students an insight into what it is like to study here. Each is a combination of audio, which you can listen to using an mp3 device, and a PDF map. Tourists and visitors to the city are welcome to use these too. You can find out more about the audio tours here.

Walking tours

Oxford University does not run tours, although many University and college buildings are open to visitors.

Walking tours of the city, which include visits to college and University sites, are offered each day by the Oxford Guild of Guides. Tours last two hours and leave the Tourist Information Centre at 15-16 Broad Street at 11 am and 2 pm, with extra tours during high season.

Groups can also book tours directly with the Guild, and specialist tours are available on a wide range of topics, including architecture, science, literature and art. Further information can be found on the Experience Oxfordshire website.

A number of independent operators also offer guided tours of Oxford. A range of general and themed tours are available, as are tours by cycle, rickshaw and bus. For a list of tour companies, please visit Daily Information's website. 

Please note that all operators are independent of Oxford University. Details are provided here for information only.
