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.

ELIZABETH HUDSON EVANS
I have been working as a professional Guide in Oxford for 11years. I was born and brought up in Scotland. Previously I was an actress working mostly in the theatre, including London's West End, but gave it up to bring up my five children. I love Oxford ,and now live nearby in the Cotswolds.
I love guiding and meet so many interesting people from all over the world. I particularly enjoy guiding young people. I am very happy to take prospective students and give them an insight to being a student at Oxford.

I arrived in Oxford over 40 years ago when I became a lecturer at Oxford Brookes University. On retirement I took history courses at Oxford University, qualified as a Bodleian and Green Badge Guide and became a member of the Oxford Guild of Tour Guides.
I love the fascinating history and glorious beauty of Oxford. I provide general tours where we walk in the footsteps of authors and their fictional characters, scientists, politicians, world leaders, and stars of film and TV through college quads and gardens. I also have a particular interest in architecture, science and medicine and provide tours focusing on these areas. I aim to inform and entertain and be adaptable. Tours should be fun and I love questions as we go. My experience in university education and my family links with Cambridge and Oxford helps me explain the particular nature of Oxford University to those considering studying here.

As an Oxford resident and Green Badge guide I've been welcoming people to the city of dreaming spires for the last three years. I’ve found that exploring the University at a relaxed pace allows everyone to soak up the atmosphere of the famous colleges and gardens, while learning about the traditions, and the fascinating stories of students and fellows, past and present.
Often I lead specialist tours such as the Oxford of CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien, and the history of science and medicine at the University. I take many student groups but also families, societies, and prospective Oxford students. I like tailoring a tour for the needs of my clients, and usually include a recommendation for the best taverns or restaurants for refreshment afterwards!
Now qualified as a Blue Badge guide for the Heart of England, I enjoy guiding on trips beyond Oxford to the Cotswolds, Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace and many other attractions in the region.
