Full description
Take a tour of some of England’s oldest pubs, and learn about their connection to world-famous scholars and writers. Visit the city’s best-known ale houses, and off-the-beaten-track pubs. Meet your guide in the city center to start your tour. As you walk between pubs, hear how beer was blessed by Catholic popes, how it helped build the pyramids in Egypt, and how it pushed technological developments. Discover the history of the pubs you stop at, learn about local ales, and hear explanations of Oxford drinking traditions. Admire the medieval architecture and decorative interiors of the places you visit. Choose from any of the drinks available to enjoy throughout the tour, at your own expense. Your guide will leave you with a drink at the final pub on the tour route.
