Wat je gaat doen

At a leisurely pace with small groups of no more than ten, we shall explore sites and entertaining stories associated with famous authors and poets who have studied or taught at Oxford such as Lewis Carroll, Graham Greene, Oscar Wilde, William Golding, C.S Lewis and J.R.R Tolkien, as well as writers with Oxford connections separate to the University such as Kenneth Grahame, Jane Austen, Thomas Hardy and William Shakespeare.

Please feel free to ask as many questions as you wish during our walk through Oxford’s grand literary history.

Hello, my name is Tom. I am an Oxford-based author and events organizer. I am currently working on a second edition of "Sweete Wittie Soules", a book which explores Shakespeare's connections to Oxford, I am also in the final stages of writing a book on the paranormal side of Oxford and in the first phases of a project concerning Thomas Hardy's connections to Oxford.

I love taking visitors around this beautiful city of which I am very proud to call my home.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Whilst walking leisurely in the hallowed footsteps of literary giants we shall come across some of Oxford’s classic landmarks, ancient colleges, beautiful meadows and some of the oldest pubs in England.

Though college opening times vary throughout the year, I shall endeavour to visit one of Oxford’s splendid colleges during the tour.

Our family was in Oxford for only one full day (which really doesn’t do the city justice), and we chose this literary tour as a way of seeing the city, the colleges, and learning more about the many writers who came out the university. Tom did not disappoint, and we appreciated the time he took with us, that he answered all of our questions, and that he catered the discussion to our interests.

As a bookish person who runs a very long standing book club I was compelled to go on this tour ! Tom is a wonderful guide : knowledgeable ,friendly ,courteous and entertaining . He walked us through the literary heart and soul of Oxford . The tour was peppered with Tom’s wealth of stories regarding the literary figures of Oxford . Tolkien , CS Lewis and many others . Afterwards I felt almost like I had stepped out of Narnia ! I got a wonderful feel for the people, places and inspirations of many of my favourite authors ! A relaxed and enjoyable tour . An absolute delight -I can’t recommend it highly enough .

Tom's tour was one of our favorite activities on our trip. From the beginning, he took great care to get our experience scheduled, moving a previous engagement to accommodate us. He was friendly, welcoming, and an absolute expert in balancing stories and anecdotes about legendary writers with more general information about Oxford.

Tom was an amazing guide. He share good story related to J.R.R Tolkien, Alice and Wonderland, C.S. Louis and Narnia. Walking with Tom in Oxford was like a journey in Hogward from Harry Potter, really magical!

Tom was exceptional. Meeting with him was definitely the highlight of our trip. As a literature student, I really appreciated his knowledge of Oxford’s literary history and could tell that it is something he is passionate about. He went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and give us an experience we would not have been able to have otherwise. As we got to know each other, he began to cater to our specific interests in literature, which helped make walking around Oxford with him feel like spending time with a friend. His in-depth knowledge of the area’s historical significance to the literary world made our time with him rich with both information and fun. If you’re looking for a way to enrich your visit to Oxford, I highly recommend booking a tour with Tom. It made our trip. -JC

Meer tips

Some of Oxford's cobblestoned streets can be a bit uneven and it is always a good idea to keep a look out for cyclists when crossing the roads in Oxford.

I highly recommended checking the weather reports and wearing suitable clothing.
