This educational day trip will take you to two of the most famous university cities in the UK – Oxford and Cambridge!
Walking Tour of Oxford
Oxford is famous for being home to the oldest university in the English speaking world – countless bright young things have wandered the town’s cobbled streets over the years! During this guided walking tour you will see the stunning Bodleian Library and furtively discover unspoilt narrow alleyways, ancient squares and towering spires.
Visit the renowned Christ Church College, where you can stroll through the quaint courtyards and mingle with students. Fans of the Harry Potter film series will be able to pick out key Christ Church filming locations – the college was used for a number of well-known scenes! The college’s Great Hall appeared as the setting for Hogwarts.
Free Lunch – More Sightseeing Time
To save you time, money and the struggle of finding somewhere to eat, our tour also includes a totally tasty lunch! Avoid wasting time waiting for a meal in a restaurant and tuck into a six inch cheese and salad sub on the go, including crisps, chocolate chip cookie and a bottle of water. It means you can make the most of each stop and won’t waste valuable exploring time.
After leaving Oxford, you’ll head to the equally stunning city of Cambridge. The location of the University of Cambridge and the celebrated Cavendish Laboratory, you’ll be taken on a walking tour through the streets of the city to see the university’s oldest college, Peterhouse, which dates back to 1284! See King’s College Chapel and its gorgeous Gothic architecture, built by a succession of English kings from 1446 to 1515. This unique building features huge stained glass windows and amazing acoustics – the chapel is the home of the talented King’s College Choir. You’ll also see the Cambridge University Library during your visit.
The tour will then leave Cambridge and travel back to London for an estimated 7.00pm arrival.
