What Can I Expect

No visit to Oxford would be complete without an Inspector Morse tour! You don't need to be a super sleuth to find a walking tour around Oxford that includes all the best bits and lots of Morse locations too... it's right here on this very page!

The city of Dreaming Spires is a bit of hotbed when it comes to mysterious murders in the fictional world of Inspector Morse. Colin Dexter's enigmatic Detective Chief Inspector Morse is partial to a pint or two of real ale, loves classical music and indulges regularly in crossword puzzles - and all this in between solving those continuous heinous crimes in and around Oxford.

From the very first Morse, 'The Dead of Jericho' in 1987 to 'The Remorseful Day' in 1999, Oxford has been the prime location for filming Inspector Morse, which is what makes these Oxford walking tours so popular. Not only will you see and visit many familiar places as seen on the Inspector Morse TV series, but also popular spin-off shows Lewis and Endeavour.

And of course, these are all fascinating historical buildings in their own right. As you walk around Oxford with your guide, you'll soon realise there are fine examples from every architectural period since Saxon times still standing proud in Oxford. From the Ashmolean museum and the Venice-esque Bridge of Sighs, to the Sheldonian Theatre and the Bodeliam Library (which has featured in many a TV show and film) there is so much to see in Oxford.

These two hour tours see your strolling around beautiful Oxford taking in all the most iconic sights from the Morse shows as you go. Ask any Inspector Morse fan what their highlight of this tour is and nearly all say the same thing; the pubs! One of the most famous (as it has featured in Morse, Endeavour and Lewis) has to be the White Horse, where Morse loved to muse over his latest case over a fine ale. Then there's the delightful five star Randolph Hotel in the heart of Oxford, which even has a Morse bar as a tribute to the man himself!

We think joining an Inspector Morse tour is the best way to see Oxford. You'll learn about all about the city as a seat of academia, see inside some amazing buildings and colleges that make up Oxford University, as well as seeking out the filming locations on Morse's patch.
