Overview

The city of Oxford is well known for its beautiful architecture and historical buildings and churches. A traditional city located in central southern England; Oxford is famously known for its prestigious university – the highest-ranking university in the world. Make the most of your trip to Oxford with our Oxford open-top bus tour as we take you around the city, allowing you to hop on and off at any of our 20 stops.

Admire the lovely views from the top of our City Sightseeing Oxford bus tour as we begin at Oxford Railway station and take you to Pacey’s Bridge over the Castle Mill Stream. Heading towards the Westgate Shopping Centre, you can hop off and explore the variety of shops and restaurants!

Hop back on as we head towards Christ Church – one of the city’s many colleges! Explore the area as you visit the Museum of Oxford where you can learn about the history of the city. Don’t forget to go see the famous Carfax Tower located just 3 minutes (by walk) away from Christ Church! The Carfax Tower is a must-see landmark as it is the tallest tower in central Oxford at 74 feet heights. Climb the 99 steps to the top of the tower for stunning views over the Oxford skyline! Once you’re done, you have the option to hop back on our Oxford sightseeing bus at either Christ Church or Brasenose College (both located a few minutes away from Carfax Tower).

End the tour by hopping off at the final stop, the Randolph Hotel, where you’ll be able to visit the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology. As Britain’s first public museum, this popular museum holds world famous collections ranging from contemporary art to Egyptian mummies!

Choose between our 24 or 48-hour ticket depending on how much of the city you want to explore.
