Overview

Oxford’s public bus system caters much more to locals than it does to tourists. Save time and money as you explore on a hop-on, hop-off bus with a loop of 20 stops that's perfect for independent travelers. An open-air top deck delivers 360-degree views, while audio commentary is available via headset. Choose between 24- and 48-hour tickets.

What to Expect

Hop on the bus at a stop that suits you—perhaps at Oxford Railway Station—choose between cozy indoor seating or the open-air top deck, don your headset, if required, and explore away.

Depending on whether you’ve purchased 24-hour or 48-hour tickets, you’ll be able to hop on and off at any one of 20 stops, listed under itinerary below, for one or two days. Buses travel at 15–30–minute intervals, depending on the season, so you’ll never have a long wait for pickup.

Stops include Oxford Castle, the Sheldonian Theatre, and University Park, not to mention Christ Church College, a key filming location in the Harry Potter series. Soak up the onboard commentary and historic views as you savor this elegant city, hopping on and off when and where you want.

A must for sightseers

Excellent value for money and a great way to get about in Oxford. The guide that we had giving the commentary was knowledgeable and witty without detracting from the main message. Because of our hotel location, (Banbury Road) we joined the bus practically outside our...More
