Oxford Bike Tour Including Full-Day Bike Hire
"Why do so many people use bikes in Oxford? This is because they know it is the best way to travel around Oxford. Oxford University has 38 colleges spread all over the town and getting to see some of the best parts is too much even for your experienced gu that you simply couldn't on foot. Plus it’s a lot of fun. You also get to use the bike for the whole day! If you decide to take the afternoon tour your bike will be arranged for you to collect in the morning. Oxford is a small pedestrianised city. So travelling around it on a bus which physically can’t get into the central parts doesn’t make much sense. On this tour you will visit and hear about sights & figures such as Magdalen College (Oscar Wilde) Port Meadow (for the definitive guide to Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland)
From GBP25.00
