UPCOMING PUBLIC EVENTS

Most of my WALKS are for pre-booked tours (starting at £60 inclusive for up to 20/24 people). However, if you as an individual, or as part of a small group, would like to come on a Christ Church Meadow ‘Alice in Waterland’ walk, do please still feel free to get in touch at oxfordtowpathpress@gmail.com, as it may be that you can join others in a similar situation or join a pre-booked larger group. Or, for £30 for up to five people (lasting 90 minutes or so), you can suit yourself as to start time time and exact route.

Botanic Garden Stroll: a  historical wander through a botanical wonder.

Oxford’s Botanic Garden is the oldest in Britain and amongst the oldest in Europe. This gentle 75-minute walk with Oxford local historian, guide, and author Mark Davies will concentrate on some of the more colourful individuals who have been associated with the 400-year-old Physick Garden and some of the notable events which have been held there. Hear about the Garden’s first superintendent, Jacob Bobart, ‘the German Prince of Plants’, and his remarkable descendants; learn about some of Britain’s earliest hot-air balloon launches made by  Oxford’s very own first English aeronaut, the pastry cook James Sadler; and discover the Garden’s  associations with Lewis Carroll and other celebrated writers. Price £15, including a drink. Book here
