CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien Tour 2017

Mon 2 Jan 2017 to Sat 30 Dec 2017

This specialist tour runs every month on a Saturday

For all fans of the most famous writers in the Oxford literary group known as the Inklings, this is the specialist tour to take. Your expert guide will take you to see the pub where the Inklings met regularly, as well as to visit a college associated with them. You will learn about all the places in Oxford where Tolkien and Lewis lived and worked. You may even catch a glimpse into how even today, Oxford is like a doorway not only into the past, but also into the imaginary worlds created by these writers.
