Walk in the footsteps of some of the world’s most brilliant thinkers on this tour of the university town of Oxford, the City of Dreaming Spires. A quick and easy train ride from London puts you on the grounds of elite colleges, where you can delve into centuries of academic history with a local guide.

Board a train from London Paddington Station and enjoy a scenic journey to Oxford. Upon arrival, meander down cobbled lanes past ancient church towers as you approach the most famous of Oxford’s 38 world-renowned colleges—Christ Church. Hear about the drama between Cardinal Wolsey and King Henry VIII, the tumult as the Tudor king divorced England from the Catholic Church, and the religious and academic debates that have raged in Oxford ever since.

Walk through medieval stone cloisters, listen to the clatter of plates in the Great Hall, admire painted glass windows and vaulted ceilings in the chapel, and check out locations from beloved films like Harry Potter and The Golden Compass as you roam the atmospheric campus.

See where authors C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien swapped stories over pints, glimpse locations that inspired Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, and hear about unusual Oxford traditions. After your tour, you can grab a bite to eat or continue visiting the city on your own before catching the train back to London at your leisure.
