Our guide to Oxford Hop on/Hop off Bus Tour

If you're looking to jump straight into the heritage of Oxford then hop on the Red Line, starting at the Railway Station. This will take you to Park End Street where you can hop off, take a stroll and take in the view of the Castle Mill Stream, a hidden treasure of Oxford. Fancy a bit of shopping during your trip? Hop off at the fabulous Westgate Shopping Centre for a great shopping experience!

The Red Line takes you straight past some of the old-style colleges, some of which date back to the early 14th century. You'll be able to see Brasenose College, The Queen's College and the Trinity College gates very clearly from up high on our open top buses. This tour will also take you straight to the old Sheldonian Theatre, where you can appreciate its stunning English-style architecture.

Why not fully immerse yourself in the English lifestyle and go for afternoon tea after a long day of travelling? We'll take you straight to the famous Browns restaurant. Go ahead and start deciding on your personal itinerary around Oxford.
