Public WALKS

Museum of Oxford Wednesday afternoon 90-minute walks, starting at 2pm. These are the dates of my own walks, with other days covered by three other local historians:


24 July: ‘Balloonatics’: Oxford and the First British Men & Women to Fly (and see my talk on 22 July below)

7 August: ‘Artists in Wonderland’: the Pre-Raphaelites in Oxford

28 August: River, Meadow and Ford

25 Sept: Canal, Castle & Convicts

2 Oct: ‘Balloonatics’: Oxford and the First British Men & Women to Fly




Private Walks

Most of my WALKS are for pre-booked groups (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.
