All proceeds of this tour will be donated to two Oxfordshire-based charities, supporting vulnerable individuals facing homelessness and addiction in the city. The city of Oxford is commonly considered as being divided into two groups: the Town (local residents) and the Gown (students of the University). While I am currently a ‘townie’, I have been awarded a place to study at Oxford this year - and my fiancé is currently studying a DPhil. This gives me a unique perspective on both sides of the community and the city, and I will share it with you in a tour so entertaining and memorable that you will wish you lived here, or your money back! We’ll cover as much as we can in two hours. Please note that entry fees are not included, though they are not necessary for a fantastic tour. If you'd like to go into any colleges or other attractions, or if you wish to customise the tour in any other way, please feel free ping me a message me. Group size is flexible. £10 per extra person.
