Having just returned from a too-short break in Oxford, I was excited to hear that Experience Oxfordshire have launched a fab new Purely Pubs Tour of the City – gives me a good reason to return this summer!
The new tour is a modern twist on a conventional walking tour and a great way to explore the city of Oxford. Ideal for anyone interested in not only the rich heritage of the City of Dreaming Spires but also that of the traditional inns and taverns across the city with the bonus of being able to enjoy a good ole fashioned pint at the end.
The tour is led by an expert and qualified Blue or Green Badge Guide and is the opportunity to discover fascinating alley ways and cobbled streets while taking in several of Oxford’s most famous pubs.
“On our new pubs tour, you can immerse yourself in the atmosphere of an early evening in Oxford and learn about local drinking traditions – from medieval to modern times.
You can raise a glass to some of those most celebrated Oxford figures – including literary greats such as Shakespeare, JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis, right through to the famous TV Detective, Inspector Morse, often heard offering his sidekick a ‘Pint, Lewis?’. It is an exciting new tour for us” says Annie Macdonald, Tours Desk Team Leader for Experience Oxfordshire.
The tour runs on alternate Wednesday evenings at 7pm – from now until the end of September. This tour can also be booked for Private Tour Groups on request, at a time to suit.
