A Wide Range Of Tours From London Every Day Of The Year

Christ Church College Oxford

The city of Oxford is about 60 miles (95 kms) from Central London, a good 90 minutes non-stop from London in a tour bus.

The famous university city of Oxford is a large city, but the central area where all the colleges and attractions are, are in a compact area right in the centre of the city. Much of this part of Oxford is either pedestrianised or has narrow lanes and alleys where vehicles, let alone tour buses do not venture.

Because of this a visit to Oxford on a tour bus inevitably involves a walking tour. This normally means a visit inside a college, the most popular being Christ Church.

Oxford & Cambridge Tour

Runs between May and September every Tuesday & Saturday

If you are particularly interested in the university, why not visit both of England's famous universities, Oxford and Cambridge in one day. This is a seasonal tour that only runs in the summer months.

We begin our day travelling across the Chiltern Hills to Oxford, the 'City of Dreaming Spires', whose hushed courtyards have inspired generations of scholars including Bill Clinton and writers, Lewis Carroll who wrote 'Alice in Wonderland', C.S. Lewis who wrote 'Chronicles of Narnia' and the immortal J.R.R. Tolkein, author of 'Lord of the Rings'.

On the walking tour you'll visit Christ Church college, where Harry Potter scenes were filmed, see the Bodleian Library and the picture-perfect college courtyards for which Oxford is justifiably famous.

Cambridge is a wonderful mixture of the everyday and the extraordinary, a living city that has shaped history and today reflects the best of historic and contemporary life. It was the inspiration for Charles Darwin, Isaac Newton and many of the Monty Python gang.

We will have a guided tour of the magnificent chapel of Kings College, founded in 1441, and a fascinating walking tour of a city filled with beautiful buildings and historical quirks.

Oxford, Stratford and Warwick Castle Tour

Perhaps the most popular tour that visits Oxford is the tour that visits Warwick Castle, Stratford On Avon and Oxford. This tour also provides glimpses of the Cotswolds, one of England's most scenic regions which is very close to Oxford. The journey between Stratford and Oxford driving through this region.

Going to London for the Thanksgiving weekend

Has any one been to London in the last week of November? How is the weather like over there?
Any ideas on good day trips or overnighters from there? Any suggestion between Oxford or Cambridge?
I have been there a number of times but usually during transit for a day or two or for work in out skirts of London where I still managed to dash out to central London.
I have taken the Westminister Palace tour and a couple of Tower of London tours (the ones by the Beefeaters are the best) and have much enjoyed them. I have done Jack the Ripper night tour that was pretty good too
