Coronavirus COVID-19 Statement

The health and well-being of our visitors and staff is of paramount importance. We are currently awaiting an update from the British Government to tell us when tour operators will be able to start operations again, and outlining the safety precautions necessary to maintain social distancing.

It is unlikely that we will be able to start operating before July at the earliest and it is with regret that we now have to cancel our tours for the month of June. We will continue to update our website and look forward to opening bookings again as soon as possible.

In the meantime, we welcome contact from anyone thinking to the future, to a time when our world returns to normal. Please do message us through the website, and if you would like to be added to our mailing list, please ask, and we will let you know as soon as we feel able to reschedule our tours.

Thank you for your understanding and support.


Oxford, often called the City of Dreaming Spires, has over 1000 years of history.

Tolkien, John Wesley and Richard Burton, to name just a few.
