Oxford's Christian

Heritage

About Oxford Christian Heritage Tours:

The city of Dreaming Spires hardly needs an introduction.   Oxford is a city of big ideas, inspiring movements which

have shaped Christianity in this country and around the world.

Who will it suit?  

Most groups are mixed in age and background, and will include some who are unsure about the Bible, and the tour will be pitched accordingly.  You have to be physically able to walk between sites. 

What will you see?

On the basic tour, you will see the Bodleian Library, Radcliffe Square, the Martyrs Memorial, St Mary the Virgin church, the Eagle & Child pub and the Oxford colleges.  In addition, you will see one or more of the following:-

  1. The Divinity School

  2. Christ Church Cathedral and Dining Hall

  3. The Tyndale window

  4. The Magdalen Papyrus (the oldest  fragment of Matthew's gospel in the world)

  5. John Wesley's room

  6. The Dreaming Spires from the top of one of the city's towers

  7. The Light of the World painting by Holman Hunt

 
Format:

These walking tours typically last 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours, the longer tour being recommended with a coffee break in the middle to 'digest the first course'.  Usually available on Saturdays.  Other days may be possible on request.

 

Cost:

Group bookings only for a minimum of 10 people at £10 a head + any access fees

For groups of more than 10, the leader goes free

 

On request:

Please ask if you are interested in bespoke tours e.g. John Wesley's Oxford, or JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis, or if you want recommendations for a full day or weekend's activities to include punting, a visit to Blenheim Palace, a tour of the Bible in the Ashmolean or even a game of quidditch.
