In 1987 John Thaw hit the British TV screens as the iconic Inspector Morse and Oxford has not been the same since! A total of 33 episodes were filmed over a period of thirteen years on the streets of Oxford (although a couple were not filmed in Oxford). The years 2006 – 2015 were the Lewis era, during which Lewis and Hathaway tried to make the streets of Oxford safe. We now have the prequel, Endeavour, and a new season is currently being filmed. On this 2-hour small-group walking tour, your specialist and fully qualified guides (member of The Institute of Tourist Guiding and The Oxford Guild of Tour Guides) who have witnessed the filming and met the cast will be delighted to show you some of the scenes, although they cannot promise to cover over 80 hours of filming in just two hours!
Meet your fully qualified guide at Martyrs' Memorial on St Giles, central Oxford. You will spend comprehensive two hours together exploring the Oxford of Morse, Lewis and Endeavour.Each tour is unique and will not follow a set route or script in order to ensure that the best possible experience is enjoyed by all. The tour will visit inside one college (subject to availability) and other highlights will include the heart of Oxford University, many more colleges and a few pubs where the words "pint Lewis" were often spoken (from the outside).At the end of the tour your guide will provide suggestions for further visits independently.
