Guided Tours

Visitors Photo:RW

Our guided tours allow visitors greater insight into the College's history, its architecture, student life, scenes associated with the world of Lewis Carroll and of course, the Harry Potter films. The tour is led by one of our experienced Christ Church custodians and lasts approximately one hour. During the months of November, December and January our guided tours will be open to groups of ten. Following the tour you will have an opportunity to explore the public areas of Christ Church in your own time. Please note there is a small additional fee if you wish to visit the Picture Gallery.

Customer comments regarding our tours:

...definitely the way to see Christ Church--even on a cold and rainy day.

Our tour guide was not only tremendously knowledgable but had a really interactive style with the group that made the tour both fun and informative.

I just had a marvellous tour ...I want to thank all of you for your polite, informative and kind assistance to me as a visitor. Our tour guide was pleasant, patient with my questions, and most knowledgable and gracious.
