Inclusions Guided walking tour River cruise or bicycle hire Entrance fee to Christchurch College Picnic lunch or afternoon tea Exclusions Gratuities (optional) Additional info
Confirmation will be received at time of booking PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME: Please arrive 5 minutes early for your tour at our meeting point. If you arrive more than 5 minutes later than the scheduled tour, then you will likely forfeit and lose your booking as it interrupts the guide and other customers, if we are trying to find you after a guide has started and left the meeting point.

INFO FOR DRIVERS AND PARKING: If you are driving, then please allow extra 30-60 minutes over whatever time you think it will take you to get here. Oxford is NOT car friendly and it is congested roads and hard to find parking spaces....unless you park at the sign posted 'park and rides' on edge of town on any major road into the city and hop on their buses into city centre.

The park and ride buses leave every 15 or every 30 minutes and take anything from 10 min to 30 min (depending on traffic) to reach city centre. So if you are going to drive, then please assume you should be aiming to park your car about one hour before your tour starts.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT: We actually recommend instead using the much faster and reliable train services but again please aim to arrive about an hour or earlier before your tour starts as trains can be delayed and the train and coach station are about 15 minutes walk from our meeting point.

There is also the coach service from London called the Oxford Tube which leaves every half hour or more but it can take much longer than its advertised 105 minute journey time. It drops you off either at High street Oxford or Gloucester Green coach station. It's quicker to ask to get off on High street near Carfax tower, then it's a 10 minutes walk to Broad street.

Please advise any specific dietary requirements at time of booking A minimum number of participants per booking is required- namely 2 adults and 1 child. Wheelchair accessible, please advise at time of booking if wheelchair assistance is required Availability for shows cannot be checked without making a booking.

Credit cards will only be charged upon confirmation of show availability If you choose cycling, your heights MUST be advised at time of booking. Please note: we do not stock bikes for young children or anyone under 140 centimeters in height Ticket info You can present either a paper or mobile ticket for this activity.
