MANY SCHEDULED WALKS & TALKS HAVE, OF COURSE, BEEN POSTPONED ON ACCOUNT OF COVID-19 BUT LOOK OUT FOR SOME “LYRA’S WALKS” (arranged via Experience Oxfordshire) in  2021 – inspired by the popularity of the BBC TV adaptations of Oxford author Philip Pullman’s “His Dark Materials”. Also “Belle Sauvage” Thames cruises to Godstow with Oxford River Cruises.

In normal times, 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 arrange a walk, do please still feel free to get in touch at oxfordtowpathpress@gmail.com. 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.

Not sure? Please have a look at my (sadly unmaintained!) ‘Customer Comments’ page.
