There are 38 colleges at Oxford University, but the tour will be focused on Exeter College, which continues to welcome students of the fine arts nowadays.

    I really enjoyed Alasdair's tour of Oxford focused on the Pre Raphaelite Brotherhood. Although the tour is in its pilot phase and the surge in Omicron meant that Exeter College was closed, Alasdair found other interesting places to visit that made the tour truly memorable. His enthusiasm and knowledge for all things Oxford are very impressive! Anyone with a passion for or curiosity about art, history or literature should definitely take this tour.
