TourInADay was started in recognition of how little the Internet is being used to help visitors to Oxford organise their trips. We wanted to provide a way for tourists to get all the information they could possibly need on Oxford’s attractions from a single site. The intention is to help them organise their time in Oxford and demonstrate that a day is not enough to enjoy all that Oxford has to offer. From this we have built TourInADay, which is just the beginning. The site is a work in progress that will evolve through time as users, like yourselves, let us know what is helpful, useless, essential or a complete waste of time!
We are here to help you get the most out of your visit to Oxford, TourInADay provides you with information on Oxford's tourist attractions, University colleges, restaurants, museums, pubs, and many other things. We have created an on-line Tour planner application that gives you the ability to generate your own personalised itinerary for visiting Oxford. The Tour Planner will provide you with detailed information and maps of Oxford showing all your selected attractions in an easy-to-read format to help you navigate your way through the spires and streets of the city. Our tours section also provides suggested itineraries and contact information you might find useful during your trip to the City of Dreaming Spires.
As places go, Oxford has plenty to see, and plenty of these sites and activities follow specific themes. Oxford’s own Inspector Morse has walked the cobbled stones of the back streets of the city and drunk in the many pubs such as the Eagle & Child. A host of famous authors were nurtured within the spires of the city, including greats such as JRR Tolkien and Lewis Caroll, who gained much inspiration from Oxford’s Botanical Gardens. The pub theme is strong enough to warrant a day trip on its own, although a pub crawl of all of Oxford’s pubs is not recommended – there are simply too many of them! A select few would suffice… Our site offers you a tailored itinerary of the city that satisfy your personal interest, or vice for that matter.
