Why Oxfordshire?

Oxfordshire is famous for the setting of Inspector Morse and Lewis, making it an must visit for so many to visit. There are many walking tours and guides to help visitors discover the magnificent treasures and secrets of Oxfordshire. 


Museums & Castles

With Oxfordshire boasting 40 Museums there are plenty of exhibitions and artefacts to see. Popular Museums in Oxfordshire include, Ashmolean Museum, which is the University's museum of art and archaeology and is the world's oldest university museum, the Museum of Natural History, Pitt Rivers Museum, Museum of History of Science and not forgetting the Museum of Oxford, which gives you an insight into Oxford's fascinating history.

If you're hoping to see some castles when visiting Oxfordshire, you won't be disappointed! Oxford Castle Quarter was once home to the Norman Oxford Castle, then the infamous Oxford Prison. Some parts of the buildings remain and they have shaped the development of the Quarter, including St George's Tower and the Castle Mound. A must visit is Oxford Castle - Unlocked.


Gardens

Oxford’s Botanic Garden, was the first in Britain and is arguable one of the most famous in Oxfordshire. Along with Blenheim Palace is a true masterpiece of 18th Century Baroque architecture surrounded by stunning award-wining formal gardens, a blanket of lawns and the great Lake. There are many more alike Gardens, rivalling these but these two are our favourite.


Walking 


If you've come to Oxfordshire to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life then there's no better way to explore the county than on foot. Most of the charming, picturesque villages and market towns are connected by public footpaths so you can walk through this beautiful area at your own pace and really 'see' Oxfordshire. Discover the stunning Oxfordshire Cotswolds where extraordinary houses and idyllic villages lie, or perhaps head to the sweeping vistas Vale of the White Horse!

In Oxford there are plenty of walking tours on offer. From tours of the University's colleges to ghost tours there's so much to see and learn. Some of the day tours go into the oldest colleges including New College, founded in 1379, and seen in the Harry Potter films and television productions of Inspector Morse and Lewis, giving you a tour to remember!
