The Oxford English Dictionary Tour- NEW!

The development of the Oxford English Dictionary is one of the greatest research activities undertaken in the city. This tour covers the early attempts at providing a comprehensive dictionary of English words including the slang dictionary of Oxford’s Richard Head and the publication of Oxford educated Samuel Johnson’s magnificent work, eclipsed only by the full Oxford English Dictionary. Compiled mainly by Sir James Murray, it was published in its entirety seventy years after its inception!

The price for a private guided walking tour in English is £140 and in a foreign language is £150.

Each guide can take up to 19 people for up to 2 hours. (You can book more than one guide for larger groups).

(College entrances are not included, but can be paid for on the day.)
