This offers a short optional walking tour, showing some of the hidden treasures of Oxford…
The walking tour will be available on our ‘Live’ guided departures from the railway station. At stop 8 – High Street you will be given the option to leave the bus with the guide to take a walk through to Broad Street – stop 13, where you will be able to reboard when you choose. This mini walk will highlight some of the buildings and sites not seen from the bus, the Radcliffe Camera, The Old Schools Quad, The Bridge of Sighs, The Christopher Wren sun dial, and more. Ask for departure times from stop 8.
If you choose not to take the walk, the bus will continue on our normal route and a recorded commentary will be available in the Guides absence.
