The city of dreaming spires holds a rich history and culture. It’s the home of the University of Oxford, the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, and it’s also the location where many scenes from the Harry Potter movies were filmed.
The walking tour covered the main attractions and what to see in Oxford including The Bodleian Library, The Sheldonian Theatre, The Radcliffe Camera, and The Medieval Divinity School.
Seeing the splendour of Radcliffe Square and the Camera will stop you in your tracks. You’ll also get a bird’s-eye view of All Souls, Brasenose, Queen’s and New colleges.
