View (from the outside); The Weston Library, The Bridge of Sigh's, The Bodleian Library, The Radcliffe Camera, University Church of St Mary The Virgin and many of the colleges.
During your walk, your guide will delight you with the stories and people that have shaped Oxford over the centuries and explain about student life.
We aim to take you inside a college or University building which is included in the cost and subject to availability. Since Oxford is first and foremost a working University, this may not always be possible.
End your tour at Magdalen Bridge where your private punt will be waiting to take you along the River Cherwell with a stunning view of Christ Church. 1.45 hour walking tour and 30 mins punting (with a chauffeur!).
Tour is for upto 5 people.
The generic British word for dessert is "pudding."
In the 19th century, the "g" was sometimes pronounced as a harder "k." Sometimes, the "n" got dropped. Sometimes that was shortened by slicing off the "pud."
In other words, small, incremental changes resulted in pudding->puddink->puddik->dick.
It's not meant to be dirty; it's just a Victorian synonym for "dessert."
Pepper a cake with currants or raisins, and you get "spots" in your pudding, hence: spotted dick.
