  • We absolutely LOVED this tour. Worth every penny as history, architectural and tv/movie buffs. We will do again the next time we are in Oxford. Highly recommend!

  • Went today for a small embroidery exhibition. Stunning work. Beautiful historic surrounding
  • Old bodleian library in Oxford is stunning. You needs an entry ticket of 9 pounds by person abd kids below 11 yo are not admitted. It is still being used and you have a guide with you that will explain some curiosities. This place also was use for some Harry Potter scenes. A must visit if in Oxford.
