Inspector Morse, Lewis, and Endeavour Walking Tour of Oxford

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!

Travel independently by train from London Paddington to Windsor & Eton Central or London Waterloo to Windsor & Eton Riverside for your morning visit (we suggest departing at around 8:45am to get the most of your day; journey to Windsor at own expense).
