Know More about this tour

Any fans of the Morse TV show will know that there are four important ingredients to understanding Inspector Morse: He is fond of music, striking women, pubs and of course Oxford. On this tour, your guide will inspire you in Morse's Oxford, introducing not just film sites and anecdotes from Morse, Lewis and Endeavour but also describing the intriguing and not always agreeable relationship between Oxford city and university.

Locations you will see may vary from tour to tour as the colleges of Oxford University are private institutions and as Morse knows, they like to have the final word on what's accessible from one day to the next but usually the tour would visit inside Exeter college and one other college or inside the Divinity School at the Bodleian library, which is one of the most stunning architectural features of Oxford University.

The tour usually finishes at a pub associated with Inspector Morse.

Any entrance fees to colleges of Oxford University venues are included in the ticket price.
