Oxford is an incredibly walkable city and a guided tour is the best way to explore and experience its many hidden secrets. Many literary heroes have wandered our City of Dreaming Spires.

We can arrange a bespoke tour for you at our Oxford hotel to take a guided stroll around the city that inspired renowned authors such as J.R.R Tolkien and C.S. Lewis to write their bestselling novels. 

Visit the hallowed halls of world-famous Oxford University, where scenes from the acclaimed Harry Potter movies were filmed.


Isabella can tailor your tour to your interests.

Favourites include a visit to literary heroes’ favourite pubs, places that inspired their writing, and of course a guide to Oxford University, where some of these much-loved authors studied.

The bespoke walking tour also features a brief overview of some of the city’s key historic landmarks such as The Bodleian Library, The Ashmolean, The Radcliffe Camera and Radcliffe Square.
