Oxford University being among the oldest universities in the world is a major travel attraction here. The university's famous colleges and their elegant courtyards are a must-see, and the Bodleian Library is definitely one of the highlights. Built in the 17th century, the library is home to over 13 million printed works, and it even features in three of the Harry Potter films. It's a true treasure of the university and is definitely worth hopping off the bus to see.
Another architectural wonder of the city is the Carfax Tower. Originally part of a church, the tower was the only part of the church that remained after it was demolished at the end of the 19th century. Today, the tower offers some of the best views in the city, and we've included admission in this tour ticket. Climb to the top of the tower and you'll get a whole new perspective on the city, and you'll be able to see the beautiful spires and rooftops that give Oxford its nickname of the City of Dreaming Spires.
To complete your Oxford experience, we've included a guided walking tour called Stepping Through Oxford. This 45-minute tour is the perfect way to learn about the city's rich history and culture. You'll be guided through the city's streets, and you'll learn about the city's past and how it has shaped its present. Together, the bus, the tower, and the tour are the perfect combination for a comprehensive Oxford experience.
In summary, Oxford is a city that is full of history, culture and stunning architecture. The hop-on hop-off tour is the perfect way to see all of the city's amazing sights, including the university's famous colleges, the Bodleian Library and Carfax Tower. And, the included guided walking tour is the perfect way to learn about the city's rich history and culture. Book your tour today and discover why Oxford is truly a city like no other.
