Introducing a fresh, updated edition of a Pitkin best seller. This great city has almost 40 colleges, each a part of the other, tightly interwoven. You’ll discover cobbled streets, looking much as they did hundreds of years ago, old wooden doors that open to offer enticing glimpses of mown lawns, neat quadrangles and ancient staircases leading into the heart of the colleges. Gaze skywards and see great bell towers, carved figures and slim spires piercing the clouds. The ancient beauty is enlivened by all the charms of a modern city – theatres, galleries, bookshops, cafés, pubs and restaurants. Today’s tourists can enjoy these 21st-century comforts while exploring the buildings and discovering the treasures of one of the greatest university cities in the world.

The future of adventure travel isn't in finding the last undiscovered place- it's in finding new ways to dive, heart and soul into the ancient beauty of civilisation that has been hiding in plain sight all along. Who better to teach you the subtle arts of going native and twisting the high life out of the glorious architecture, fascinating past and hidden wonders of Western Europe's most splendid cities, than a wanderlust historian with a joke up his sleeve and an eye for a free pass? Alex Kerr is spun from the glorious fabric of Oxford, UK: a passionate traveller, professional historian and delightful literary guide to show you all the secret wonders of civilisation, with a backpacker's budget but the tastes of a billionaire. After travelling for years across the America's and Europe he found himself enchanted with the town of Siracusa, Italy on the island of Sicily. Investing a year of passion to learn and write about the town, people, food, history and culture, his last book, 'Where should I stay in Sicily?' has sold across the globe. His next sizzling work cracks open the secrets of his beloved native Oxford City, taking you gently by the hand through the ancient, cobbled streets and yellow stone colleges, with a whisper and a wink. A jape and a freebie. A love of the history of its people, and a strong sense that as you tread the cool stone roads, between the spiralling ancient beauty of the architecture that abounds, like the backdrop of a magical novel, that you too are becoming part of the footsteps of history.

A Guide to the C S Lewis Tour in Oxford

For anyone who is interested in the life of this celebrated author. Ronald K. Brind has combined his own life-long interest with extensive research to produce a comprehensive guide of the Oxford area, taking in all the sites of significance in the story of C. S. Lewis. The guide can be used in isolation or as a companion publication to the C. S. Lewis Tours run by this author. Clive Staples Lewis was a prolific writer in many fields; some of his most notable titles, such as The Screwtape Letters, Mere Christianity and The Problem of Pain discuss religion and his own passionate commitment after a period of uncertainty. He is perhaps best known among children for the books in his Chronicles of Narnia series. Yet, during his time at the Kilns, the Oxford home he moved to in 1930 and he lived until his death in 1963, the magnitude of his contribution to literature was scarcely recognised. He and his older brother Warnie were simply known as the Professor and the Major, respectively. This account of C. S. Lewis life is both detailed and intensely personal. Ronald K. Brind was a boyhood friend of one of Lewis step-sons, Dougie, and was a regular visitor to the Lewis household. Indeed, this makes the feeling of the author all the more acute that the lifetime surroundings of this great literary figure should be valued and afforded more respect and attention than is currently the case. I have provided this information throughout this form and I will not type it all out again. If this is a problem please get back to me.
