What to expect

You'll start the day by travelling from Southampton to the famous city of Oxford. This beautiful university town has been home to scholars and royals for over 800 years. Your guide will lead you on a walk through the historic city center where you'll learn about Oxford's history, the University of Oxford, famous people who have graced the city, and interesting old traditions.

Next, you'll visit Christ Church and its famous cathedral. Christ Church College was used as a double for Hogwarts School in the Harry Potter movies so you may even recognize some of the buildings! After the walking tour of the city, you'll get to enjoy the classic English experience of Punting of the River Cherwell.

Punting is a truly timeless, slightly eccentric, quintessentially Oxford, idyllic pleasure. Sailing leisurely upstream or downriver, trailing your fingers in the silky water, admiring the wildlife, dropping in at the Victoria Arms Pub, or drifting downstream past the University - you'll have a wonderful time!
