Message on door saying transferred to High Street, trudged to High Street. All Visitors Centres in OXFORD closed not due to Covid but due to lack of finances. How can a place like Oxford do this .... wasted our time and energy. In future we will be going back to Cambridge 100% better in welcoming visitors. BAD BAD

Ok, so we are in the middle of a Pandemic.
I am not really sure how Tourist Info expect visitors willing to spend time and money, to contribute to Oxfords economy when the information they need to do so, is CLOSED DOWN.

LOOKING ONLINE ONLY CONFOUNDED THE SITUATION WITH OFTEN INCORRECT AND OUTDATED INFORMATION.

What on earth would we have done without Jessica? She was a veritable fount of information & without her advice et al we would have missed a lot that Oxford has to offer.

Walking tour with Sally
Feb. 2020
First off a special mention for Yuliana (hope that's how you spell it - if not, apologies to her) in the Centre for her additional volunteered information e.g. where to go for lunch/for a drink in such an unbiased way. Then on to our Walking Tour with Sally. It was great that there were only about a dozen of us, so it was easy to hear her softly spoken informative narrative. She set an alarmingly spritely pace considering she was using two crutches, outpacing the majority of us to keep to her strict time schedule, especially as we were allowed into the dining hall of Exeter College as they were preparing for lunch. I lost count of the number of colleges we saw but each has it's own character, and all so beautiful. Those couple of hours has whet our appetites for a longer stay in this beautiful city to delve deeper. Thank you Sally.

A good starting point for a visit to Oxford
Feb. 2020
For a starting place if you are unfamiliar with Oxford it is probably a good a place as any to start. There are the usual tacky gifts in the centre but there are useful guides vailable at a price of course. There is some useful information displayed.

Great tour arranged by the Visitor Centre
Jan. 2020
We took their walking tour - 2 hours of history - we visited one of the colleges and heard about a couple of others. So much history - you really need a good tour guide to appreciate it. Too much to see in a weekend. Some lovely curiosity shops nearby to catch next time too.
