Go beyond the dreaming spires of Oxford and explore the university city from a different perspective. Follow in the footsteps of the TV series "Inspector Morse" and its spin-off shows "Lewis" and "Endeavour."

Enter the fictional world of the author Colin Dexter and his famous detectives as you visit sites where scenes were filmed in the old city center. Start at the stone monument of the Martyrs' Memorial outside Balliol College, and continue to venues such as the luxury Randolph Hotel and the traditional White Horse pub.

Venture down Broad Street and get historical information about the streets and other places familiar to fans of Morse and his fellow detectives. Go to one of the colleges used in the show and get behind-the-scenes information about how the characters were developed.

Walk in the footsteps of Morse, Lewis and Hathaway

I can highly recommend this walk. The World of Morse, Lewis and Endeavour TV shows were brought to life. You stand where the stars stood in the beautiful Oxford filming locations. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very passionate about all the shows and Oxford colleges. She shared many secrets from her chats with the stars and writer Colin Dexter. The 2 hours flies by you will be sad when it is over but you are left with an experience you want all your friends to share. I’d like to do the walk again and can’t wait to go back.

It was on the warmest day of the year in July. The guide was very very good. We had all the information we wanted and so much more.of interest. She stood us in the shade as much as possible. This was important so we could concentrate fully. I cannot believe how much of the subject was covered. All in an informative and light way combined somehow. We visited so many places after meeting at The Cross. The tour ended after 2hrs + at The Bodlian.
