Historic Oxford Tour
Meet on the steps of the Ashmolean Museum to join Britain’s most dapper tour guide and “Chap Olympiad” medalist Russell Nash for a tour round our historic University City.
See buildings associated with the university and its 38 colleges and hear stories of some of the famous individuals who studied here.
From Christopher Wren, to Tolkien, to Bill Clinton, Oxford is teeming with stories of writers, martyrs and scientists as well more than a few Harry Potter locations!
Russell is one of London’s most fabulous professional tour guides who specialises in historic tours and is a “blue badge” holder – the highest national guiding qualification. As a storyteller, Russell brings the past to life and opens your eyes to the sights around you.
The tour will end in a convenient central location for the Lindy Hoppers’ picnic.
Lindy Hoppers’ Picnic
Bring some food and something to sit on and join us for a Lindy Picnic.
There will be outdoor games, music, dancing and maybe some punting
to enjoy all in a picturesque spot near the river and Magdalen College
Alas, the picnic will be cancelled if it is wet, but fear not, we will have something to keep you busy whatever the weather!
Lindy HQ and Tea Party
Join us back at “Lindy HQ” for a swinging garden party.
We will have dancing on the grass, Oxford Ice Cream from G&Ds, tea and cake, games and more dancing until the Down for the Count Swing Orchestra are ready to go!
