SUMMARY:


Oxford is the city of Dreaming Spires, a distinguished academic excellence for over 900 years, an inspiration to its famous students including President Bill Clinton, and the authors J R R Tolkien, Lewis Carroll and C S Lewis. There is also the choice of visiting Christ Church College, where Harry Potter was filmed, the Bodleian Library and the Sheldonian Theatre. There will be some free time to discover the university town of Oxford at a leisurely pace, perhaps souvenir hunting in Oxford’s famous indoor market or enjoy a coffee in one of the many beautiful cafes.

The elegant city of Cambridge is a university town and the administrative centre of the county of Cambridge shire, England. It lies in East Anglia, athwart the River Cam, about 50 miles (80 km) north of London. Cambridge is most widely known as the home of the University of Cambridge founded in 1209, which is consistently ranked one of the top five universities in the world. Visit the renowned Cavendish Laboratory, King's College Chapel, and the Cambridge University Library. Marvel at the oldest college that still exists, Peterhouse, which dates back to 1284.

Highlights:


POTTER

Harry Potter Film Sets

Follow the footsteps of the world's favourite wizard through Oxford's most spectacular College, Christ Church. Its Great Hall inspired Hogwarts Hall to create many of the scenes in the Harry Potter feature films which were shot in various locations of the College; as you walk around the cloisters and quadrangles it is easy to see why!

PUNTING

The punting boats have become one of the most popular ways to see the famous bridges and colleges along the River Cam.

In the afternoon we head over to Cambridge where you will also be given a short walking tour highlighting all the famous historic places there are to see. You will be given time to enjoy the buzz of the local market and also to have lunch or a coffee before being invited to join the guide at a spot of punting!
