Walking Tour for C.S. Lewis & J.R.R. Tolkien Fans

For all fans of the most well-known writers in the Oxford literary group known as The Inklings, this is the specialist walking tour to take! (This tour is scheduled at 2.30pm on the first Saturday of every month, or can be booked as a private tour – more details below).

Now famous worldwide, the work of these seminal authors is explored in this 2-hour tour, along with the Central Oxford locations where they lived, taught and worked as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Tolkien’s death (1892-1973).

The works of C.S. Lewis have inspired many religious thinkers since and his Narnia series of books have delighted generations of children.

J.R.R. Tolkien’s books, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy, have been made into blockbuster films.
