‘Once upon a time’ is how all good stories begin, and has Oxford got some stories for you!

As we explore the winding streets of the city of dreaming spires, you will be introduced to tales of fun & of fantasy, stories of magic and of mayhem, and the unexpected and extraordinary journeys of children just like you. A whole world of adventure awaits with some of your favourite characters and perhaps you’ll meet some new ones too.

‘Once upon a time’ can take you anywhere.

Family walking tours are offered during school holidays. For more information, contact the Tours team.

5 stars! This is an excellent tour for children who like books, introducing them to some of Oxford's most well known historic buildings from a perspective that they can relate to.
