This was really good fun. Although we knew Oxford fairly well, this took us to some places and made us look at familiar places with new eyes. However the final clue defeated us. We asked people in the venue to help but no-one could identify the final clue which was a huge disappointment

We did this on a Saturday during a visit to Oxford It was great fun and the clues were very interesting you need to read exactly what it says Took about 3 hours to complete there are visits to pubs for refreshments at pubs which were very historic We would recommend this to anyone visiting Oxford who want to see sites off the beaten track

We had already done the London one which we enjoyed. Good day out for everyone as we included a pub lunch. Would recommend

Don’t know Oxford very well so this was a great way to see it. We used the park and ride which took the stress off. LOVE the beautiful buildings. We had a delicious meal at the first pub. The photo is of the door that inspired C S Lewis’s wardrobe door to Narnia.
