Our boutique Oxford hotel has partnered with long-time Oxford resident Isabella Underhill, to celebrate the Year of Literary Heroes by offering bespoke walking tours of hidden Oxford this spring.
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, and visit the hallowed halls of world-famous Oxford University, where scenes from the acclaimed Harry Potter movies were filmed.
Isabella Underhill, a graduate in History of Art and Italian at University College London, has an extensive knowledge and passion for the city and its University.
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.
Vanbrugh House Hotel, part of the Splendid Hospitality Group portfolio, is a boutique townhouse hotel with 22 bedrooms, each unique in design and all featuring en-suite rainfall showers.
