Lump in the throat that comes from Alma mater nostalgia? Surge of love-hate emotions tied up with classrooms and profs? Pretty much a given…on the cobbled streets of the oldest university of the English speaking world, with your enthusiastic historian-guide. Cover the obligatory stops, including Bridge of Sighs at Hertford College, New College, University Library, Sheldonian Theatre, Christ Church Radcliffe Camera building. Get your head around the unique college-system of Oxford and Cambridge and the infamous ‘Town and Gown Wars’. Shiver at stories of Oxford martyrs burning at the stake. Explore movie locations - Harry Potter, Bridshead Revisited, Inspector Morse. Literature buffs can celebrate, because Oxford has inspired many works of fiction from JRR Tolkein, CS Lewis, Lewis Carroll, and JK Rowling. Lunch with a dreamy view of the River Isis to stir up more brainpower. If you’re up for it, climb up a 74′ bell tower for a drone-view of those dreamy spires. A day well spent.

Medieval Oxford Walking Tour

Medieval Oxford Walking Tour

Why is being ‘medieval’ sometimes seen as an insult? Why are we fascinated with the idea of 'horrible histories'? Modern media has fostered the stereotype that people in the Middle Ages were uniquely backwards, superstitious, violent, dirty, and barbaric. Join us on Uncomfortable Oxford's newest tour about medieval Oxford which will cover histories of prejudice and bloodshed, while debunking the myths of 'medieval' times. The tour will explore long-lasting connections between the past and the present, and discuss how some of the issues and debates are relevant to this day. This tour is run by students from the University of Oxford and lasts for about 1.5hrs. We will walk no more than two miles, but please be aware that cobble stones and uneven pavement may restrict the accessibility of this event.
