Discover the beautiful city of Oxford with a City Sightseeing hop-on hop-off bus tour. An easy and convenient way to travel between sights, your ticket offers unlimited travel for 24 or 48 hours. See iconic University of Oxford buildings such as Christ Church College and Bodleian Library, both of which were featured in several Harry Potter films, as well as heritage sights like Oxford Castle. Enjoy entertaining audio commentary, panoramic views and the freedom to hop on and off at any of the 20 well-placed city stops. Entrance fees not included.

Hop aboard your City Sightseeing open-air bus from any of the 20 routed stops that are conveniently situated around the city. Take a seat inside or on the open-air top deck, then sit back and relax as you ride through Oxford, home to the oldest university in the English-speaking world.

With your 24- or 48-hour ticket, choose to stay on the bus for the entire loop, or hop on and off at any of the stops to explore the city’s sights. See the Itinerary for a list of stops. As you travel, plug into the informative audio commentary and admire the timeworn, honey-colored buildings.

Perhaps hop off at the New Road stop to visit Oxford Castle. Learn how the medieval Norman castle was mostly destroyed during the English Civil War, with the remaining buildings then being transformed in to a prison.

After, maybe stop at Christ Church College, one of the largest colleges in the University of Oxford. Admire its grand façade then, if it’s open to the public at your time of visiting, head inside to discover its fascinating history. Learn about the many distinguished people who have studied here — including Albert Einstein and Lewis Carroll — and see the Great Hall, which has been featured in several of the Harry Potter movies.

Next, perhaps visit Sheldonian Theatre, which was designed by Sir Christopher Wren in the 17th century. This historical venue serves as the university’s official ceremonial hall, but it is open to the public when not in use. Choose to visit independently or join in with a guided tour, then head inside to explore the main theater. Gaze up at the majestic ceiling that was painted during the reign of King Charles II. Then, explore the attic before taking in 360-degree panoramic views of Oxford from the Cupola.

The full loop lasts around one hour, and buses arrive at each stop every 15, 20 or 30 minutes, depending on the season.

You may also visit the Divinity school of the Bodleian library (which is also a Harry Potter film site). The tours may cost marginally more than competitors, because the group sizes are considerably smaller. The average is 1-4 persons only.

This walking tour departing outside Oxford Visitor Information Centre will introduce you to English history in Oxford, religious strife during the Reformation and Civil War, foundations of the university, town & gown student riots, literary heritage including inspirations for Oxford writers' creations, such as 'Alice in Wonderland'. You will also learn about eccentric traditions, urban legends and Oxford's relationship with 'the other place'!

There are lots of amazing sights to see, walking through Oxford city centre, including many of the colleges plus other university or city sites like the Bodleian Library and Christchurch (both Harry Potter film locations!). Depending on your interests and which colleges may be open to see inside of, as the average group size is less under 5 persons, you can request your guide to try to tailor tour itinerary according to your interests.

Generally, the tour always visits inside one or two of the university's historic college buildings or inside the Divinity School but you will see many more colleges on the route too. October to March, usually you will see inside New College (founded 1379, with the medieval city walls intact). During the high summer season, the tour usually visits inside Exeter College (1314, where J.R.R Tolkien studied) or St Johns College (1555, where Tony Blair studied). Every tour varies, so please send your requests to the local provider and your guide will do their best to cater for them.

Most of our guides are Oxford students or graduates or actors, so they can introduce what student life is like credibly & with humour.
