  • Personnel was very helpful and polite and they helped us a lot with our holiday in Oxford. Thank you!  more »
  • in my experience this is easily the worst tourist information centre I've been to. They have almost no booklets of attractions or places to visit, things to do. The city map they offer is not great, b...  more »

  • Lady behind the counter was very helpful. Helped us find parking and walked us through exactly how to get there and took extra time to ensure we understood exactly what we needed to do. She appeared to be somewhat busy but took the extra time to help us out.
  • Lots of information and things to buy. They also offer walking tours, we went on the Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland tour. Very informative and a good way to explore some of the colleges.
  • Nice shop and friendly staff purchased a basic guide book and it was a great purchase managed my way round Oxford with ease and found the gems mentioned in the book. Edited 26-2-19 after my most recent visit I would have to say how disappointed I was with a booked tour guide booked in on the 2 hour city and uni tour and found it to be a waste of money. I was told when booking my trip I would be shown the divinity school and this didn't happen I was also expecting facts about film locations which was mentioned in the pamphlet and also mentions of authors in particular pointing out the door that inspired NARNIA instead there was a lot of time filling about the hierarchy of the universities and fee's and politics and at one point the tour guide forgot her facts and had to use Google on her phone to help with information. I felt with my leaflet I previously purchased from the tourist information shop and Google would have set me up to go about my own tour. The area covered on the tour was pretty much close to where we set out from. Save the cash buy the basic tour guide book and use your phone this is what I did with my Sunday and found places not talked about on the tour and got tons more out of it.
  • Friendly & knowledgeable staff. Had a fantastic walking tour with Joanna this afternoon. Thank you
  • An actual visitor information which isn't part of a library or in another council building. Well stocked. Knowledgeable staff.
