Harry Potter Oxford Insights Tour
NOTICE: This tour starts at 12.45 and not at 12.30 but the airbnb scheduling system has no option to state 12.45! The Divinity school film site is closed on some dates but on any such dates, we simply swap it for entry to New college film site with extra £5 entry to pay. This tour goes into great detail about the making of Harry Potter in Oxford, including film site/s visits. It also highlights JK Rowling's ideas plus it mentions Oxford history plus Oxford's many other famous literary connections. Covid Closures Revised Itinerary: Currently, only the Divinity school film site at the Bodleian library is open. Its £3 per person entry fee is included in your ticket. There is a larger film site called New college but it's not open every day & so it's not included in the tour- unless you request your guide to take you there but that will then mean an additional £10 per person paid in cash only to extend the tour to include New college too. The tours run in English. However, together with my bilingual colleagues, we can also offer private group tours only in foreign languages with adequate advance notice. If -after you book- we learn of closures affecting the tour, I will email you but please can you also share your phone number and email address after booking, so that I can update you of any such notices.

We will start with a whirlwind overview of Oxford as the central player in 1,000 years of British history, and giving guests an understanding of how the sprawling institution operates before embarking on the tour. Navigating down the windy alleyways we will get an insiders take on the little known viewing angles that bring across the drama of the world famous architecture in this city.

We will enter one of the oldest Colleges at Oxford, renowned for its beautiful gardens, before heading into one of the most famous Library's in the world - responsible for over 13 million books. Capping this off we will cover a Harry Potter film site, along with why the most powerful religious figure England has ever seen, was burnt alive in the centre of Oxford, on what is now such a nondescript part of road you could easily miss it.

If this changes on the day we will of course incorporate them - if we are not able to offer any access, we will offer up the option of a full refund.

You will: • Learn essential street photography skills • Learn how to visualise a scene, and how it may look as a photograph • Know the difference between a bad and an outstanding picture • Build pictures and story using light, composition and moment • Learn how to shoot candidly • Tell the story with your pictures • Discover the rules of composition • Evaluate you images- what did and didn’t work After the workshop you will fill more confident shooting people in public spaces. I will give you open and honest feedback, and advice on your next steps. The group is limited to four delegates, so you're guaranteed to get my full attention. If you want to book a date but it is not on the calendar, contact me and I will see to arrange it. Level of Experience: Any Other things to note This workshop is open to anyone; no experience required. Having fun comes first. The route is mostly flat.

Magdalen has a deer park & buildings dating back to 1400. Exeter dating to 1314, features lots in Inspector Morse tv show. It has an exquisite chapel. We look at what inspired CS Lewis's conversion & we also introduce the lives of both men plus their friendship with each other & other members of the Inklings writers group who famously met at the Eagle and Child pub to discuss their writing.
