After we pick you up from London, we make our way to the 'city of dreaming spires'. Your visit begins with a guided walking tour amongst the cloisters and quadrangles of Britain's oldest University, founded in 1167, when King Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris. Ivy clad medieval college buildings compete for space with Georgian shops and ancient churches around busy streets which both 'Town and Gown' call home. Our guided walking tour will take you into the heart of this land of hallowed academia, past the Bodleian Library, the Radcliffe Camera, Sheldonian Theatre, Harry Potter film locations and University buildings. Entry is included to the Divinity School, built in 1488 for the teaching of theology. This splendid room is the University's earliest purpose-built teaching room, and its first examination hall. With an elaborately vaulted ceiling and 455 carved bosses, it is a masterpiece of English Gothic architecture.
