Alternatively, you can visit Blenheim Palace, home of the Duke of Marlborough and birthplace and grave of the greatest Englishman, Winston Churchill. There is an opportunity to visit delightful villages in the Cotswolds or visit the Downton Abbey locations. Trips can include Hampton Court, built by Wolsey and stolen by Henry VIII (explore the Palace and understand the ramifications of the Royal Divorce, the confiscation of land from the Church to the spread of its wealth and its eventual impact on liberty and the growth of the British Empire).

Chauffeured Punting In Oxford

Chauffeured Punting In Oxford

star-5
Sit back, relax, and enjoy this enchanting Oxford punting trip on Oxford’s River Cherwell. Chauffeured punting is the easiest way for you to enjoy this classic Oxford University experience. The lapping of the water under the boat, the daffy ducks gliding alongside looking for treats, the water-colour views framed at each turn by arcades of trees, the play of light on the water, the wind in the willows… Your chauffeur for this captivating cruise is an expert punter. Having learnt while a student here at Jesus College, he spent many a sunny day on the river with friends instead of in the library studying. So come along, bring a drink (preferably champagne or Pimms) and bask in the spellbinding scenery of the river.

Spencer's Early Morning Tour of Oxford (Private)

Spencer's Early Morning Tour of Oxford (Private)

Are you an early bird? Do you like to explore new places early in the morning, before the mob have had their breakfast? Well, this is the tour for you. For this private tour, we'll meet at 07:30 and have the city entirely to ourselves. 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 certainly a ‘townie’, both my girlfriend and sister are studying doctorates at the University of Oxford. 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 90 minutes. If you wish to continue the tour, I’m happy to discuss extending it where possible. Please note that entry fees are not included, though they are not necessary for a fantastic tour.
