Select Date and Travellers

Discover the beautiful Oxford on an unlimited hop-on hop-off bus tour for 24 or 48 hours! At your own pace, see all of the history and architectural beauty this city has to offer, hopping on and off the double-decker bus whenever you please. From the open-top deck you'll experience panoramic views of Christ Church College, Brasenose College, The Plain, the Sheldonian Theatre, Trinity College and even The Eagle and Child pub where J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis would meet up for a beverage! The on-board audio tour commentary will be sure to keep you fascinated, providing intriguing facts on the way round.
  • Discover Oxford, the “City of Dreaming Spires”, at your own pace
  • Enjoy 20 stops, including Oxford Castle, University Park, and the station
  • Soak up 360-degree views from the top deck as you listen to audio commentary
  • Choose between 24- or 48-hour tickets to suit your schedule
What to Expect
Hop on the bus at a stop that suits you—perhaps at Oxford Railway Station—choose between cozy indoor seating or the open-air top deck, don your headset, if required, and explore away.
Depending on whether you’ve purchased 24-hour or 48-hour tickets, you’ll be able to hop on and off at any one of 20 stops, listed under itinerary below, for one or two days. Buses travel at 15–30–minute intervals, depending on the season, so you’ll never have a long wait for pickup.
Stops include Oxford Castle, the Sheldonian Theatre, and University Park, not to mention Christ Church College, a key filming location in the Harry Potter series. Soak up the onboard commentary and historic views as you savor this elegant city, hopping on and off when and where you want.

The company requires you to produce a PRINTED copy of the voucher. A copy on your mobile or tablet is specifically excluded. Coming from overseas I had no access to a printer. If you are from out of town, use the other bus company.

I would say 24hr is acceptable if you are able to use it over the two days, we only required it day one but we made good use of it
