Oxford has many quirky customs, people and places special (peculiar) to city life through the ages. From our patron saint to the man that transformed the city in 20th century, this gallery tour aims to highlight a few of those unique stories and customs.

Our guides will take you on their personalised highlights tour around the Museum, lasting 30-45 minutes with time for questions at the end.
