Overview

Explore Oxford’s historic town center and ivy-strewn university buildings on this bike tour. Cycle through the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’ alongside a guide, and learn about the city’s history as you take in University of Oxford buildings where the likes of Oscar Wilde, J. R. R. Tolkien and several British prime ministers have studied. You’ll also visit pubs, green spaces and other locations steeped in history. This bike tour allows you to cover more ground than you would on a walking tour, as well as access pedestrianized areas inaccessible to tour buses.
  • Bike tour of Oxford, led by a guide
  • Explore the famous university city on two wheels
  • Pedal to some of the university’s most famous college buildings
  • See pubs, parks and other sites linked with some of the most famous writers and scholars of our time
  • Make use of the included full-day bike rental to explore more after the tour
Choose between a morning or afternoon tour, and then make your way to the meeting point in central Oxford to join up with your guide and group. After listening to a short safety briefing, strap on your helmet and set off to explore the honey-hued city at a leisurely pace.

Pedal along Oxford’s bike-friendly streets toward some of the 38 beautiful colleges that make up the prestigious University of Oxford, considered the oldest university in the English-speaking world. As you cycle, admire the timeworn buildings that throng the narrow roads and gain insight into the city’s past and present from your guide.

In addition to the university buildings, you’ll also visit sites like Port Meadow, said to be the inspiration behind the Alice in Wonderland stories, and the Eagle and Child pub, where the Inklings writers' group, whose members included J. R. R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, often held meetings.

After your 2-hour tour concludes, you can make use of the included full-day bike rental to continue exploring at your own pace, should you wish.
