Tour description provided by Viator

Our Inspector Morse's Oxford tours are smaller, more personalised than our competitor's. We average only 2-4 persons on a tour.  This tour departs daily at 12.30.  This tour can also alternatively be booked for private group tours at other start times. You will see inside university colleges & one of Morse's favourite pubs/bars on this tour of Morse, Lewis and Endeavour filming locations on this Oxford walking tour lasting up to 2 hours, as you explore the making of this famous character and the TV series. Gain insights into not just the detective but also what life is like to study and work at Oxford university, as you visit inside colleges and see some of the most famous Oxford sights.
Any fans of the Morse TV show will know that there are four important ingredients to understanding Inspector Morse: He is fond of music, striking women, pubs and of course Oxford. On this tour, your guide will inspire you in Morse's Oxford, introducing not just film sites and anecdotes from Morse, Lewis and Endeavour but also describing the intriguing and not always agreeable relationship between Oxford city and university.Locations you will see may vary from tour to tour as the colleges of Oxford University are private institutions and as Morse knows, they like to have the final word on what's accessible from one day to the next but usually the tour would visit inside Exeter College and one other college or inside the Divinity School at the Bodleian Library, which is one of the most stunning architectural features of Oxford University.Our marginally higher ticket price reflects the special quality of typically having smaller groups than our competitors- average numbers are 2-4 persons only. This ensures the experience is more intimate and your guide is able to cater for your specific interests too. Any entrance fees to colleges of Oxford University venues are included in the ticket price.
