Welcome to Oxford Water Walks


A Towpath Walk in Oxford Stories of Oxford Castle The Abingdon Waterturnpike Murder


The only available guided walks along the River Thames, its backwaters, and the Oxford Canal, revealing the main features, events, and characters which have shaped these historic waterways and, as a consequence, the city of Oxford. Seen from the unique viewpoint of modern-day canalboat resident, walks are tailored to meet the interests and stamina of your group, embracing both historical and literary themes.


Entertaining, informative, and insightful talks on Oxford’s WATERWAYS, CASTLE PRISON, HISTORICAL CRIMINALS, and LITERATURE, showing how very much more there is to Oxford than its University.

“Thank you for a wonderful second talk this year. Once again you will have gathered from our response how much we enjoyed seeing you again and how interested we were in what you had to tell us.”
