Les célèbres joyaux cachés d'Oxford
Le centre-ville d’Oxford est une concentration de tout ce que vous voulez savoir. Dans une région relativement petite, il y a des centaines d'années d'histoire que nous allons vivre en marchant quelques heures. Nous allons visiter les sites célèbres et en apprendre la culture, les raisons et l'histoire derrière ce que nous voyons. Nous entendrons parler des personnalités célèbres d'Oxford, qui ont façonné le monde et en ont appris davantage sur leur monde. Nous découvrirons également d’autres endroits cachés, ceux que les touristes (et de nombreux habitants) ne connaissent pas. Je soulignerai les lieux des films de renommée mondiale et la magnifique architecture cachée. Ceci est une visite pour de très petits groupes car je veux que vous vous sentiez à l'aise et capable de poser des questions. S'il y a une exigence particulière, il suffit de demander et je ferai de mon mieux pour vous satisfaire. La plupart du temps, ce serait votre propre visite privée. Nous nous rencontrerons devant l'hôtel Randolph, sur Beaumont Street, en face du musée Ashmolean et commencerons notre aventure à partir de là. Autres remarques Mes visites sont adaptées aux familles et les enfants de moins de 10 ans viennent gratuitement. Nous traverserons de nombreux magasins au cours de notre promenade où vous pourrez acheter des boissons et des collations si nécessaire.

Visite guidée sur le thème d'Harry Potter à Oxford
NOTICE: This tour starts at 12.45 and not at 12.30 but the airbnb scheduling system has no option to state 12.45! The Divinity school film site is closed on some dates but on any such dates, we simply swap it for entry to New college film site with extra £5 entry to pay. This tour goes into great detail about the making of Harry Potter in Oxford, including film site/s visits. It also highlights JK Rowling's ideas plus it mentions Oxford history plus Oxford's many other famous literary connections. Covid Closures Revised Itinerary: Currently, only the Divinity school film site at the Bodleian library is open. Its £3 per person entry fee is included in your ticket. There is a larger film site called New college but it's not open every day & so it's not included in the tour- unless you request your guide to take you there but that will then mean an additional £10 per person paid in cash only to extend the tour to include New college too. The tours run in English. However, together with my bilingual colleagues, we can also offer private group tours only in foreign languages with adequate advance notice. If -after you book- we learn of closures affecting the tour, I will email you but please can you also share your phone number and email address after booking, so that I can update you of any such notices.
Escape to Oxford Walking Tours
From the Martyrs' Memorial, close to the north gate of the old city, we meander through the heart of Oxford, passing a number of historic buildings and university colleges, including the 1000 year-old Saxon Tower, the oldest building in Oxford and the finest example of Saxon architecture in England, Carfax, the magnificent Town Hall, Christ Church College and its beautiful Meadow, over ‘Dead Man’s Walk’ into medieval Merton Street where we cut through Logic Lane, past University College, the first of the 39 colleges that make up the University, into the Radcliffe Square, (one of the most sought after landmarks in the UK), view the magnificent Gothic architecture of University Church of St Mary the Virgin, meeting place of the university's first governing body, the Schools Quadrangle, heart of the world-renowned Bodleian Library and seat of the 15th century Divinity School. We pass the Sheldonian Theatre, Christopher Wren’s first major architectural project and the first purpose-built public museum in the Western world into Broad Street. Our guides are well versed in the history of Oxford and the University from the founding of the city over 1000 years ago to the beginnings of the University in the 13th century, through the industrial revolution to the present day. Where possible will escort our guests into university and college buildings. Private tours available on request.
Visite de l'université d'Oxford avec d'anciens élèves
We will start with a whirlwind overview of Oxford as the central player in 1,000 years of British history, and giving guests an understanding of how the sprawling institution operates before embarking on the tour. Navigating down the windy alleyways we will get an insiders take on the little known viewing angles that bring across the drama of the world famous architecture in this city. With striking spires and imposing buildings, we will cover how these influenced Tolkien, C S Lewis, along with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. We will enter one of the oldest Colleges at Oxford, renowned for its beautiful gardens, before heading into one of the most famous Library's in the world - responsible for over 13 million books. Capping this off we will cover a Harry Potter film site, along with why the most powerful religious figure England has ever seen, was burnt alive in the centre of Oxford, on what is now such a nondescript part of road you could easily miss it. Please note: Colleges and the Library can shut without notice and currently they are available as of August 2021. If this changes on the day we will of course incorporate them - if we are not able to offer any access, we will offer up the option of a full refund.

Oxford University Walking Tour Led By University Alumni
In just an hour walk through pivotal moments of human history: from petty and outlandish rivalries to architectural masterpieces with confusing names. See the lamp-post which inspired Narnia and the architecture which has inspired His Dark Materials. Visit the meadows where C.S. Lewis first recounted the story of Alice in Wonderland. Marvel at some of the world’s greatest examples of Gothic and Baroque architecture. Inspiring, baffling, and downright outrageous: Oxford is a city full of stories waiting to be told. Oxford is nothing without its students, and it’s the students who make our walking tours so special. All our tour guides are either graduates of or current students at the University of Oxford who combine their personal experiences of the city with their deep passion for its history, architecture, and stories to provide a one-of-a-kind tour. Combining a deep passion for the city’s history and architecture with the knowledge you hear all about what the students really get up to – from BOPS to secret societies and which all-night library permits outside snacks. Which college is the poshest one, and which is the oldest? Which one has traditions designed only to mock the traditions of other colleges? As well as hearing it all from the horse’s mouth, you get to see inside colleges, with highlights including the beautiful Jesus college gardens. This is the real Oxford.

Firstly the students choose a painting from my collection (everyone paints the same ) After my initial introduction, we have a practice on an old canvas, when I show you how to use the brushes to create the painting, to get familiar with the materials. We then change to a brand new canvas (20 x 16 inches) and I teach you slowly starting with the sky, and layer by layer to build up the painting till it is finished. I will give everyone all the time needed to produce a painting that will astound yourself and your friends. I can teach anyone to paint. Even if you've only ever painted doors and skirting boards before. The Bob Ross method of painting is simple to understand and the first time you do it, you can get a fantastic result. I supply all the materials needed including plastic aprons, tea and coffees and gentle music! It's a very relaxed atmosphere of having fun while learning to paint. The time limit is not strict as some people need more time, which is no problem, as I believe that this is your day, and if that means more time, its OK with me PLEASE BE AWARE, I will take everyones temperature with my new infra red thermometer. If you have a high temperature YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO JOIN US FOR THE PAINTING SESSION.
