KATE BILLIMORE

I'm a qualified Oxford Green Badge Guide and enjoy leading general public and private tours around the city, as well as offering specialist tours in Science, Film Sites, Benefactors, the Downton Abbey Era, Basic English and Harry Potter. I also lead tours around the village of Bampton, the location used for filming the village scenes in TV’s Downton Abbey.

A Linguistics graduate and musician, when I'm not leading walking tours, I’m to be found playing viola in various orchestras and conducting a number of local choirs.

SANDRA BINGHAM

I am an experienced and qualified Green Badge Tour Guide and I really enjoy showing people round glorious Oxford and sharing its colourful history and traditions with visitors of all ages.


I especially love Inspectors Morse, Lewis and of course Endeavour tours where we will discover the locations of murder, mystery and intrigue. Or join me for a tour to see the locations of films with Oxford as backdrop such as Harry Potter, or hear about famous writers such as Lewis Carroll or C.S Lewis.

 

Do check my website for more details. I hope you will leave Oxford with many good memories and will want to come back again

LEIGH GUYATT

I have always been interested in the tourism industry and on top of my teaching qualifications I couldn’t resist studying for a Tourism Management degree on arrival in Oxford. My love of Oxford and exploring led me to the Guild of Tour Guides training programme which I completed in 1986. I’ve been guiding on and off ever since and still discover something new every tour which I love sharing with my clients.


I am a Morse, Lewis and Endeavour fan and really enjoy taking these specialist tours. I can also offer Alice and Harry Potter when grisly murders become too much for me.
