Join us for an Oxford On Screen Walking Tour

Oxford naturally lends itself as a stunning backdrop for the movie and TV screen and reflects why VisitBritain latest promotion campaign is called “Starring Great Britain”.

The city has been the host of over 40 movies and 7 TV series, and is synonymous with 102 episodes of Inspector Morse, Lewis and Endeavour.  The city and its historical university naturally lend itself as the inspiration and backdrop for many stories on screen.

Our expert and passionate guides will show you around the most famous landmarks that have been immortalised on screen, from the Radcliffe Camera in Emerald Fennel’s Saltburn, to the Bodleian Library in Harry Potter, and share the titbits and anecdotes that filming in Oxford can bring.

Tread in Inspector Morse’s footsteps around the pubs of Oxford, follow Lyra (His Dark Materials) around the colleges, and eat with the vampires (A Discovery of Witches) in the historic Covered Market.

Suitable for all ages, whether you are a “set-jetting” cinephile or just intrigued by filming locations, join up with those who enjoy spotting the landmarks regularly seen on film and TV.
