This was a birthday trip to see the Bodleian library. I had always wanted to see it as it has been used for many films. I was fascinated buy it architecture and history of the library. If you are ever visiting Oxford I highly recommend...More
Very informative tour. On the 30 min version your only shown a limited amount of the library and might be left wanting to see a little more. Lots of history and some interesting stories, but over quite quickly.
You can only see the Divinity School/hall by paying a fee; you can either join a small tour for a small fee, OR, if the Divinity School is all you'd like to see (or have time for), then you can enter by paying £1.
Worth getting a 1-pound entry ticket if you either can't afford the full trip or are simply running out of time in Oxford.
The library is absolutely stunning and if you are a fan of Harry Potter, you will definitely recognize the hall :) :)
We took the 1-hour tour on a Sunday (when Duke Humphrey's Library is fully accessible) and much enjoyed both seeing the building and hearing about its history from our knowledgeable guide. There's less atmosphere in the Divinity School but much to notice when it's pointed...More
We pre-booked directly with the Bodlian a 30 minute tour at the end of the day. It only cost around £6 per person which I thought was very reasonable. We were shown around this stunning architectural and historical treasure and informed of the colourful history...More
Hi, I'll be reaching Oxford around 1130 and planning to leave at 1730 (heading to Salisbury for a night). Will it be enough time to visit Christ Church College and Bodleian library? And with lunch in between? Can I still add other place? Thank You.

I will pick one day out of this, Day 9, tour Anfield, tour the Lake district and drive to Edinburgh. I cant think what to say without being though rude. It will nice when it is over is the best I can come up with.But hours looking at tarmac through a wet windscreen is not my idea of a holiday.

Lunch for a large group near Bodleian (7 Replies)
Hi- This April I will be bringing a group of 35 high school students, teachers and parents to tour Bodleian Library- I am certain that after looking at all those beautiful books they will have worked up an appetite! Any suggestions for a suitable, not too expensive place, to get this group a bite of lunch? Thanks!

I suggest that you take them to the covered market where there are a number of cafes and sandwich places and let them choose where they want to eat. That way they will be (a) under-cover (b) able to choose what they want (c) not be likely to swamp one single establishment and (d) have an easy rendezvous point. If the parents want a sit-down restaurant there is a nice Pizza Express in Golden Cross which is attached to the Covered Market by a small passage or, if they want something fancier...More
