Oxford is a magical city. Magnificent buildings, glimpses through doorways, the majesty of colleges spanning 800 years. Let me be your guide to the history of the city and its university, exploring it through the eyes of an astonishing cast of characters who have wandered the very paths and pavements before you.
Along the way, we’ll also frequent the haunts of beloved fictional characters, from Lyra Belacqua to Harry Potter, from Inspector Morse to Lewis and Endeavour. And then there are those – like Alice Liddell, inspiration for Alice in Wonderland – who transcend the real to inhabit the richer realms of fiction.
As an accredited member of the Oxford Guild of Guides (and possessor of their much coveted Green Badge), I will be happy to tailor your tour to your wishes as far as possible.
I also do two specialist tours that have been approved by the Oxford Guild of Guides:
Phillip Pullman - Lyra's Oxford – this includes all the books that make up His Dark Materials and The Book of Dust. We can't travel to Svalbard and Bolvanger, but we can glimpse the characters as they move around the city and its buildings.
