Did you know that Oxford's local population is one of the most cosmopolitan and international in the UK? Oxford is an outward looking European city which embraces the cultures and the cuisine of its local residents. One of the best aspects of traveling abroad is trying the local food but eating out in major tourist destinations can be a hit or miss experience, so it pays to find out where the locals like to eat and that's partly the mission behind this walking tour that combines the best of travel: food and sightseeing.You will be introduced to the best sightseeing spots and learn all about Oxford city and the history of its famous university but you will also sample savory and sweet foods from some of Oxford's best food stalls and of course, local food speciality shops. Your guided tour includes 4 to 5 food or drink portions at local market stalls or food and drink shops, including a visit to Oxford cheese company's shop which sells 'Oxford Blue' & other local cheese specialities.
