Oxford's Dreamy Spires Day Excursion.


"Over Bridge of Sighs, to rest my eyes in Shades of Green, under Dreaming Spires", the opening line to a well known song.
What better way to enjoy a Day Excursion from London than in the idyllic setting of England's most stunning and classical setting - taken in a traditional London Black Cab.
Oxford is known worldwide for its University and place in history - and my Tour will allow you to become immersed in the special City that has been a home to royalty and scholars for over 800 years.
We shall get up close and personal with some beautiful architecture, magnificent quadrangles, handsome interiors and even enjoy watching some traditional punting in rowing boats on the River Thames (or Isis as the locals call it).
Fans of Harry Potter or Inspector Morse can request a customised experience - although Christ Church's impressive Hogwart's Hall is worth a visit regardless.
With your permission we can also climb some steps to take in that iconic Oxford Spires vista - among those dreamy spires!

Itinerary

We leave London at 9am in my traditional London Black Cab - for transfer to Oxford, where we should arrive around 10:15am.
Our walking tour in the 'City of Spires' will commence with an introduction to the Ashmolean Museum, before exploring several emotive Memorials fundamental to the City's heritage - before breaking for the best coffee west of London.
Your Oxford experience will continue on foot discovering Oxford's magnificent splendour, and highlights include: the Colleges of the University, the Radcliffe Camera, Christ's Church Hall and Cathedral, Sheldonian Theartre and Oxford Castle - the afternoon punctuated with a traditional English pub lunch down by the river's edge.
Our day together will include stories of celebrities past and present, tales of the 'town and gown wars', and revelations of royalist romps - and enhance your visit and leave lasting memories.
You can relax back in my Black Cab as I return you to your Hotel after a pretty full day in a very special location.
