Oxford Local Food & Drinks + Sightseeing Tour

Enjoy sampling 4 or 5 of Oxford's best food market stalls on the Oxford Tapas food tasting tour. The guide will also introduce Oxford sightseeing spots.

Did you know that Oxford's local population is one of the most cosmopolitan and international in the UK? Oxford is an outward looking European city which embraces the cultures and the cuisine of its local residents.

One of the best aspects of traveling abroad is trying the local food but eating out in major tourist destinations can be a hit or miss experience, so it pays to find out where the locals like to eat and that's partly the mission behind this new tour. You will be introduced to the best sightseeing spots learning all about Oxford city and its university history but you will also sample savory and sweet foods from some of Oxford's best food stalls and of course, local food speciality shops.

  • Enjoy a guided sightseeing & food tasting Oxford tour. Sample 4 or more of Oxford's best food or drinks market stalls. Experience a taste of Oxford's local food specialties like Oxford Blue cheese!
  • Learn about the history of the city and Oxford University
  • Enter into a University college or Bodleian Library
