The City of Oxford tours from London

A wide range of tours from London every day of the year

Oxford skyline Evans tours

Magnificent: Oxford skyline

The city of Oxford is about 60 miles (95 kms) from Central London, a good 90 minutes non-stop from London in a tour bus.

The famous university city of Oxford is a large city, but the central area where all the colleges and attractions are, are in a compact area right in the centre of the city.

Much of this part of Oxford is either pedestrianised or has narrow lanes and alleys where vehicles, let alone tour buses do not venture.


Because of this a visit to Oxford on a tour bus inevitably involves a walking tour. This normally means a visit inside a college, the most popular being Christ Church.


Oxford tours from London

There are many day tours from London that spend time in Oxford, but none that spend all day here. A typical tour bus visit will last 90-120 minutes and involve a walking tour of the city with focus on the university colleges. A few may enter and visit Christ Church.

If Oxford is a city you want to explore in-depth, best just to take the train from London's Paddington Station or the Oxford Tube bus service that starts at London Victoria.

Below are summaries of the most popular itineraries for tours that visit Oxford from London, none combine Oxford with Blenheim Palace just outside Oxford.
