OXFORD, THE ISIS & IFFLEY
We begin our day in the centre of Oxford at 10.30am for morning coffee (included) at a Morse pub.
Our gentle walking tour through the heart of the university city includes the beautiful courtyard of the Bodleian Library and one of the Oxford Colleges for a trip down memory lane or an introduction to the life of an Oxford student through the ages. We break for free time for lunch on The High or return to the pub for a fish & chips group lunch.
In the afternoon we cruise from Folly Bridge along a tranquil stretch of river past Christ Church Meadow and the university boat houses. Iffley lock and the village are incredibly pretty. Sitting atop gentle Rose Hill is one of the most beautiful churches in England. It's certainly one of our finest examples of Romanesque architecture: unusually little altered over the centuries.

You can't get to Iffley by coach and you can only reach the Isis farmhouse on foot or by river.
This characterful pub on the towpath has a large garden to watch the world go by over a cup of tea or a G&T before taking the boat back to Folly Bridge to head for home at 5.45pm.
The Jam Buster version starts at midday and heads home at 6.30pm.
