    Details

    This event is cultural, where we will visit Oxford city, so there is no need for hiker clothing!

    The PRICE INCLUDES the entrance to the Hall and the Cathedral of Christ Church College, where we will also visit the famous Harry Potter dining room.

    Oxford well deserves a route through its historic streets, so we will focus on visiting the highlights of this beautiful city. We have concerted the entrance to the buildings described, the drinks and food are not included.

    University Church of St. Mary the Virgin. This church of the eleventh century was the center from which Oxford was consolidated. From the outside, the ornate baroque needle attracts attention, as well as the decorative gargoyles and grotesque figures that adorn the façade. It is especially striking the porch of the south entrance, which has spiral columns on which rests a pediment with curved details.

    Christ Church College. One of the most important and large colleges of the University of Oxford. It is known for giving life to the famous Harry Potter dining room, also noted for having been the site of the novel "Alice in Wonderland." Its author, Lewis Carroll, lived and studied at this college.

    Museum of the history of Science. The Museum of the History of Science houses a collection of scientific instruments used from medieval times up to the 19th century. One of the most emblematic objects of the museum is the slate that Albert Einstein used in one of his lectures, during his visit to the University of Oxford in 1931.

    Ashmolean Museum. It is an art and archeology museum of the University of Oxford, founded in 1683. Our world-famous collections range from Egyptian mummies to contemporary art, telling human stories through cultures and time.

    Hertford Bridge. Known as the Bridge of Sighs for its similarity to the famous Bridge of Sighs in Venice.

    Cornmarket street. It is a commercial street where musicians and street artists usually gather. In addition there is the covered market. Located in a wonderful 17th century building, it maintains that unique authenticity with varied and surprising stops.

    Turf Tarven. Pub dating from 1381, famous for having witnessed the "drunkenness" and "fun" of great renown and public figures, including Bill Clinton, Stephen Hawking, Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair.

    The Bear. Famous for its large collection of ties, which decorates ceilings and walls. These pieces of ties belonged to students of the University who frequented this pub and who, in exchange for half a pint for free, were allowed to cut their ties by their owner.

    The Grand Café. It has been serving coffee since 1650 and is, officially, the oldest coffee shop in England.
