The tour lasts from one to two hours, as required.
Meet at Worcester Street Car Park (Nuffield College entrance gates) or the Martyrs Memorial (St Giles) – or anywhere else in the city by arrangement.
The end point is usually determined at the commencement of a tour, but can be arranged for a particular place or pub.
The tour covers town and gown ghosts – i.e. colleges and the streets of Oxford.
Maximum group size is normally 20, above that the atmosphere of walking the streets of Oxford by night may be lost.
The ghost stories recounted are valid experiences by the person or person originally reporting them, but we cannot attest to their veracity.
