Mad Hatter's Oxford Walking Tour

Join Oxford's most eccentric costumed guide, the Mad Hatter, for a zany look at all-things 'Alice'.

Visit inside Christchurch, Oxford's most popular tourist attraction. Your guide will unveil a zany look at all-things 'Alice' plus tell you all about the making of Harry Potter at Christchurch. In addition, when possible, we also visit inside the Divinity school of the Bodleian library.

Where possible, we will prebook tickets into the college, thus beating the often extreme queues. Christchurch is claimed to be the inspiration for Hogwarts Dining Hall! Christchurch entrance fee worth up to £9 entrance ticket is included in this ticket. Christchurch was the home of Lewis Carroll & 'Alice' and discover how real-life events inspired the story development of Oxford's most famous story.
