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

I have been in the travel industry for over 20 years and have been fortunate to travel all over the world. I've been a tour guide in the Netherlands and a holiday representative in Turkey. My work has taken me to America, Canada and Australia.


I trained as a Green badge guide in Oxford and I love discovering its secrets and sharing them with the groups I guide. As well as the general tour I offer specialist tours including Inspector Morse, Film sites, Harry Potter, Gargoyles and Grotesques, Literary Oxford, Downton Abbey and Bampton, and of course Alice in Wonderland.

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.

I am an experienced and qualified walking tour guide for the City of Oxford.  I also have experience of tour managing groups visiting Oxfordshire.

I love to show visitors the beauty and history of the Oxford Colleges and the University and to communicate why I love this city and its history.  I also love to lead Morse, Lewis and Endeavour tours.  They are a fun way to explore the city as portrayed in these enjoyable TV dramas and work well for those celebrating a particular event.

As a qualified guide with many years’ experience I would like to take you on a journey. A very special tour for your family or group which is engaging, entertaining, interactive and stimulating. But don’t just take my word for it. Here are the views of my guests: ‘Magnus was magnificent in every way’….’Oxford comes alive with his stories, jokes and acting’…’there is something special around every corner’. ‘Absolutely fantastic’…’he’s a wonderful story teller’…. ‘the perfect mix of history, tales, and knowledge’. ‘He has deep insights’…’a glance behind the scenes - given in an extraordinary entertaining and informative way’. ‘He sets the right tone…light, witty and wise’.

Tours can be customised to your group and include University and City, Morse Lewis and Endeavour and Ghost tours. I look forward to seeing you.

I’m a qualified Green Badge guide for this wonderful city and I love showing visitors around the stunning architecture and bringing Oxford alive with stories of the fascinating individuals past & present, real and fictional, who have known these streets and strolled around the colleges and quads.


In addition to giving you a general introduction to the city and university I can take you on tours focusing on C S Lewis and J R R Tolkien, on the Oxford of Morse and Lewis (and Endeavour), on Harry Potter or Alice in Wonderland.  I’m also particularly interested in Oxford’s religious and scientific history.
