After meeting your guide and group in central Oxford, head out to explore some of the key filming locations for Inspector Morse and its spinoffs, Lewis and Endeavour.

The itinerary may vary depending on the time of year, but tours usually include Exeter College and one other college, or the Divinity School at the Bodleian Library, an architectural highlight of the city.

See the settings of famous Morse scenes, hear behind-the-scenes tales about the show, and learn about Oxford’s literary connections. If you wish, finish with a drink (own expense) at one of the fictional detective’s favorite pubs while you solve a typical Morse mystery.

Our tour went on for almost three hours, but you can beg off at any time. Just tell the guide if you need to go.
