Known for its beautiful, historic architecture, Oxford still retains the ability to surprise us with its with its waterways, its parks and its hidden streets and gardens.
As well as seeing the university from close up, our Official Oxford Cycle tour shows you parts of the city that most visitors do not see, and travel by bicycle allows us to slip away to visit quiet waterways and meadows with wildlife and views of the city that will remain with you long after leaving.
We begin by cycling amongst dreaming spires, the students’ colleges and university departments before escaping the hustle and bustle of the city centre into the surrounding countryside, riding alongside the River Thames in Port Meadow, and having a glimpse of the daily lives of past and present Oxonians.
The Official Oxford cycle tour has 11 carefully selected stops, tailored to reflect a broad mixture of history, culture and hidden gems.
At each stop our friendly guides will share some insight into our historic city, allowing plenty of time for interaction and photographs.
