Additional information
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • Important: Minimum age is 18 years and, if you look like you are aged under 30, you must carry valid photo ID to prove you are aged over 18. This must be a photo driving license, a passport, a proof of age drinking UK ID card, or a military ID card. The date of birth must be visible in English. Without this proof of age, pubs can oblige you to leave their premises
  • Please note: although we have public liability insurance, any damage to property or accidents to persons, as result of your being intoxicated, are not covered by any PLI. This tour encourages sensible drinking. It is not just a pub crawl; while it visits an average of three pubs in three hours or more, it also introduces Oxford city and university sightseeing spots
  • Entrance to colleges is NOT generally included on this tour, as the colleges close at 5pm. However, you will see many of the historic colleges and city sights during the tour
  • PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME:
  • INFO FOR DRIVERS AND PARKING:
  • If you are driving, then please allow extra 30-60 minutes over whatever time you think it will take you to get here. Oxford is NOT car friendly and it is congested roads and hard to find parking spaces....unless you park at the sign posted 'park and rides' on edge of town on any major road into the city and hop on their buses into city centre. The park and ride buses leave every 15 or every 30 minutes and take anything from 10 min to 30 min (depending on traffic) to reach city centre. So if you are going to drive, then please assume you should be aiming to park your car about one hour before your tour starts.
  • PUBLIC TRANSPORT:
  • We actually recommend instead using the much faster and reliable train services but again please aim to arrive about an hour or earlier before your tour starts as trains can be delayed and the train and coach station are about 15 minutes walk from our meeting point. There is also the coach service from London called the Oxford Tube which leaves every half hour or more but it can take much longer than its advertised 105 minute journey time. It drops you off either at High street Oxford or Gloucester Green coach station. It's quicker to ask to get off on High street near Carfax tower, then it's a 10 minutes walk to Broad street.

We had a great pub tour with Alisdair! It was a perfect mix of city history and sites and stops at some of the historic pubs around town. Alisdair is very knowledgable and has great stories to tell. It was a great introduction to Oxford!

I had arranged this tour for my family from the US. Having no expectations, we came away from this fun and informative tour with the sense of having been treated to a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Our guide happened to be the owner of the company and had to track us down at our hotel because we had not arrived at the decided location on time. He very kindly picked us up and off we went to walk in the footsteps of history...via the local pubs! Don't miss this tour if you plan to spend a night in Oxford. We met new and interesting people by sharing a table in one of the pubs and the conversation and education were entertaining and memorable. The tour (because of the season) was a private one and we felt extremely lucky to have experienced it all.

Peter was an excellent guide for my husband, friend and myself as we explored Oxford our first night in town. We had a couple of pints throughout the tour and got a mix of history including the university, literary figures, and even a touch of Harry Potter. Peter was very knowledgeable and gave a great overview of the city, including many tips and tricks for the remainder of our stay. Would happily join one of this company's tours again!

Tour organised for a group of European colleagues visiting Oxford for the first time.
Alasdair our guide was excellent in his knowledge & delivery & set exactly the right level between the sights & the pubs. The feedback from every member of our group was excellent with everyone enjoying the whole evening.

Hi Andy, Thanks for kindly leaving such a great review. I would actually have liked to tell you all lots more stories, when we were sitting in the pubs but as pubs can get quite crowded, it's not always possible to all sit together. Anyway though, I hope everyone was not too hungry by the time you started dinner afterwards. Thanks again for choosing to book our Oxford pub tour for your corporate staff activity. Sincerely, Alasdair
