About this activity
Pop in your state-of-the-art Vox headphones as your tour starts and listen to your guide talking clearly about each site. If you want to wander aside and take photos of attractions, you won’t miss any of the commentary!

Find your own inspiration in the sense of tradition and intellectual curiosity that pervades this lovely City. You will visit Christchurch College, where Harry Potter scenes were filmed and where Albert Einstein studied. On your walking tour of Oxford you will see the Bodleian library and the picture-perfect College courtyards for which Oxford is justifiably famous.

Through scenic countryside to Cambridge, bridging centuries of scholarly rivalry between these two venerable institutions! Cambridge's stately Gothic style College buildings rise spectacularly from the greenery along the River Cam where students and visitors enjoy punting along the River.

You will visit the magnificent perpendicular chapel of King's College, founded in 1441, which is the finest and grandest example of late medieval Gothic architecture in England, and a fitting tribute to the great minds that have studied here. During your walking tour of the city filled with beautiful buildings and historical quirks, you'll visit the so-called "Bridge of Sighs", named after its look-a-like in Venice and several other Colleges that make up the University, each with their own stories to tell.

Evans and Evans tour took us to both Cambridge and Oxford as a long day trip. It does take 2 hours on the bus to get from London to Cambridge and then another 2 hours from Cambridge to Oxford and then 2 hours home again. YOu can do the math and realise that time in each town only gives you a flavour of the amazing history of these places. All the main sites were covered and good tips about where to get souvenirs were given. If you have time I would pick one university town to do a more thorough visit, but as the highlights were so amazing eg Christchurch College Oxford, I thought the trip well worth it

Really Good

This was a fantastic tour. Our guide and bus driver were great. You visit Cambridge first and you are taken to the key sites and given plenty of information. You also have some time to wander around yourself a bit longer would have been better but not really possible if you are trying to visit both places in one day. You can view the rivers but no time for a boat trip. Oxford is the second place and it is just as amazing. We got to go in the great hall which isn't open every day so that was fantastic. Students were on holiday so crowds were low. Really loved this and would highly recommend this a day trip from London.

This is an excellent tour for an impactful day trip out of London - a bit of a drive but even the drive was wonderful! Our guide was very well informed and knowledgeable in all aspects of each city's history. We loved seeing so many sights that we've only seen on TV in alot of British shows we get on PBS!
