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 km) 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.

Christ Church
Christ Church is a popular destination in Oxford

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.

Windsor, Stonehenge & Oxford Tour

At the beginning of your day you'll arrive in the royal city of Windsor, where (if the option is selected on booking) you will visit Windsor Castle, the official residence of The Queen and home of the British monarchy for more than 900 years.

Next you'll journey on to the mysterious World Heritage Site of Stonehenge. Travel back 5,000 years to prehistoric Britain to the most famous Neolithic monument in the world.

At the end of the day you'll head to Oxford, the City of Dreaming Spires, home to one of the oldest universities in the world. Enjoy a guided walking tour of Oxford to see the famous colleges, with their ivy-clad stone walls protecting beautiful chapels, halls and libraries.
