The standalone ticket is only available from our Oxford Railway Office. Tours will leave Stop 8 every 30 mins between 11:20 and 15:50 hrs. Due to popularity, we unfortunately cannot guarantee availability on any specific tour.  Walking tours were originally available only until the end of August, however, we have listened to our customers and have extended this offer into the autumn.  Buy your ticket and enjoy a beautiful and informative walk around Oxford soon!

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 Guide’s absence.
