Escape the hustle and bustle of London on this fully escorted, guided day trip to Oxford by train. Journey through the English countryside to this quintessential, picturesque city. Be enchanted by incredible Oxford University halls that were used to create the magical locations in the Harry Potter films.

Meet your guide in central London and board a train for a short 60-minute journey through the charming English countryside. Enjoy a fully guided tour through the city streets as your local guide takes you through the most stunning sites from the historic colleges, to hidden courtyards and quadrangles to libraries. Snap some pictures of the Oxford’s “Bridge of Sighs” and hear about its similarities to its famous namesake in Venice.

Follow your guide into the awe-inspiring Christ Church College and appreciate the Great Hall, which served as the model for Hogwarts Hall in the famous Harry Potter films. As you stand among the long wooden tables that seem to stretch to infinity, imagine yourself surrounded by young eager magicians to begin their lessons in witchcraft and wizardry.

Enjoy plenty of free time walking around the rest of the city at your leisure and grab some lunch, or perhaps adventure yourself into sampling a traditional English cream tea. Meet your guide to catch the train back to London, early enough to enjoy an evening in the capital.
