Description
Day 1
Start your enchanting Thinkers and Writers tour when boarding the train from London’s Paddington Station to Oxford (approx. 1 hour). Oxford is one of the most quintessentially British cities with its quaint cobbled streets, timeless architecture and boundless beauty all rolled into one. You’ll get to explore it all as you venture from each famous landmark, soaking in the culture of this iconic city as you go.

Tour one of the University of Oxford’s famous colleges – Christ Church College. As one of Oxford University’s biggest colleges, it is a real sight to behold. Many famous Writers have frequented here including Lewis Carroll who wrote the best-loved childhood classic of Alice in Wonderland.

After exploring Christ Church, why not visit the exquisite Ashmolean Museum and come up close to the Egyptian mummies – unforgettable!

Keep your walking shoes on as you learn more about this famous UK city by visiting Balliol College, one of the oldest academic institutions in the English-speaking world! Found by Sir John de Balliol in the 13h century, it provides a fascinating insight into the history of the University.

Soak in sights of the glorious New College which was originally built in 1379 as a miniature version of Her Majesty, the Queen’s favourite royal residence – Windsor Castle. You’ll also get the chance to visit the Corpus Christi College and meet the two tortoises named after the founders – Fox and Oldham!

Day 2
One of the best ways to get to know a new city is to embark on a hop-on hop-off bus tour through its best-loved locations so why not spend your second day on an open top bus tour? Soak in exceptional sights of Oxford’s most iconic landmarks and get your selfie sticks at the ready as you capture the Kodak moment. Hop-on and off at your own leisure as you can choose to stay on the bus and learn more about this rich English city or hop-off to discover by foot.

Day 3
With your Thinkers and Writers tour of Oxford over, it’s time to head back to London. You’ll board the 11.55am train back to London Paddington where you’ll arrive at 1.05 with bucket loads of happy memories!
