Remember to prepare properly before heading out on any type of walk or outdoor activity. Tell people where you are going and what time you are expected back. As Wainwright says “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing”.

Harry Potter & Alice in Wonderland
The grandure, sense of wonder and magic of Oxford is what attracted the film crews of Harry Potter to the city. The grand staircase of Christ Church featured in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, while the great hall was the inspiration for the spectacular dining room at Hogwarts. At Oxford’s oldest teaching room, the Divinity School, the intricate ceiling may look more familiar to Harry Potter fans as the Hogwarts Infirmary, whilst the Bodeian Library, one of the oldest in Europe also doubled up as the library in Hogwarts.

Oxford, the birthplace of Lewis Caroll’s Alice in Wonderland. This walk will take you around the city and past Christ Church college, where we first met Alice.
