Au programme

Starting at the Eagle and child pub I'll begin with the first story of the day about two old friends, C S Lewis and J R R Tolkien. We'll then move onto Broad Street where we'll visit Trinity College, The Museum of the History of Science featuring a very famous blackboard. Next, The Sheldonian Theatre and the Duke Humphries Library. Then onto the Bridge of Sighs and into the very old New College. Time for the next pub, The Turf Tavern, where you'll learn something about Bill Clinton. Now onto the Bodleian Library and a visit inside Divinity School which has featured in films like Harry Potter and Mary Queen of Scots. Back out through the library, then a short walk to Carfax Tower which will give us a view of the entire city. Back down the winding steps and a walk down St Aldates to the magnificent Christchurch College. Then onto the oldest of Oxford's colleges, Merton College before coming to rest at the oldest pub in Oxford, the Bear adorned with over 4000 ties. Along the way you'll hear stories of riots, executions, a tortoise race, Henry VIII, Albert Einstein, Lewis Carroll and the real life Alice. Bloody Mary, Boris Johnson, The Oxford Martyrs, The founder of the Metropolitan Police, Christopher Wren and other famous Oxford alumni. As an actor and writer I can promise you an entertaining and informative tour, delivered in a suitably dramatic style. You won't be bored

I am a local actor, writer and teacher with a comprehensive knowledge of Oxford's culture and history. I can tell you first-hand how exciting and intriguing a city Oxford is, having worked and played here for over ten years. I will even tell you a little about the nearby town in which I live - Abingdon, which is the oldest town in Britain, having been inhabited since the iron age. My aim is to give you an unforgettable experience of Oxford and its historical sites, employing my acting skills to introduce you to many of its historical characters, some of whom attended the University and some of whom changed history. This will be a tour you won't easily forget.
