Oxford CityExplorer® £89

Packing & Postage FREE*



The Oxford CityExplorer® Mystery Tour is great for visitors to Oxford - especially couples or families on a city break or day out, tourists or any small group of up to 5 people.

Oxford is arguably the world's most famous university city - graced by superb college architecture drenched in atmosphere, history, privilege and tradition. Don't miss the inspiring views across the meadows to the city's golden spires and don't miss out on lots of things for adults or children to see and do.

The Oxford mystery tour is a self-guided sightseeing travel guide with a twist that helps you explore what Oxford has to offer.

The route you take depends on your answers to a set of clues, questions and puzzles around Oxford that can be tackled in any order.

There's no tour bus, no annoying headphones, no tour guide and no strangers to sit next to. Instead, we supply you with a map and a series of conundrums that send you on a journey of discovery of Oxford's past and present.

Your route could take you to see the Bodleian library (second largest in the UK), Mob Quad (a delightful courtyard of Merton college), punting on the River Cherwell, the Ashmolean Museum's vast collection of art and archaeology, Christ Church (Oxford's largest and most prestigious college) and more - but what you actually end up seeing is up to your clue cracking and puzzle solving abilities!

Wherever you go, it's a fun way to get your bearings, enjoy some sightseeing, discover hidden corners, pick up interesting facts along the way and start to get a flavour of the history, architecture and people of Oxford (including its students).

The Oxford CityExplorer® Mystery Tour is set up ready for you to do independently. The mystery tour's unique flexible format means that you can choose where to start and finish and how long you want to take - so that it fits with your schedule, your other activities and where you're staying.
