Sample Itinerary


We Come to You
Your private guide will meet you at your hotel, apartment, or agreed central London location.

Take a Magical Train Journey
Sit back as the train takes you through some of England’s most picturesque landscapes. Your guide will spend the 45 minute journey getting to know your group and tailoring the day to your interests. (London public transport to London Paddington Rail Station is at your own cost.)

Climb one of the Dreaming Spires
Get a view from the top of one of Oxford’s famous towers, and revel in the beauty of the city around you, and the lush countryside beyond.

Admire Oxford University Colleges
You’ll be dazzled by the stunning architecture of Oxford’s colleges, some of which are nearly a thousand years old. Stroll through historic squares, under the famous Bridge of Sighs, and round the iconic Radcliffe Camera.

A Lunch You’ll Love
London Tailored Tours loves food. We’re happy to recommend nearby places to eat, whether it’s a local pub, a tea shop, or even a picnic by the river. We’ll happily make a reservation for you. (Food at your own cost.)

Ancient Treasures on Display
See a first edition of Shakespeare in the Bodleian Library, dinosaur skeletons in the Oxford Museum of Natural History, or Roman spear tips in the Museum of Oxford. 

Magic and Wonder at Every Turn
Follow Alice’s white rabbit to Wonderland, sing dwarf songs from The Lord of the Rings, or spot Harry Potter locations in Britain’s most literary city.

Visit A Rustic Riverside Pub
Drink in the pub where Walter Raleigh planned his expeditions.

Drop-off back at your London hotel
Board the train back to London with your guide, a great chance to get personalized recommendations for the rest of your trip. Say your goodbyes to the guide at the hotel at around 4 pm, giving you enough time to relax before an evening in London.
