In the later Victorian period rapid increases in population, rises in real wages, and the advent of the mass media fuelled a growing demand for manufactured goods, in Oxford as elsewhere. Join local historian Liz Woolley on a walk around the city centre to find out how activities like brewing, clothing manufacture, and bookbinding developed here, and to look at buildings which remind us of Oxford’s perhaps surprising industrial and commercial heritage.

Circular walk of 90 minutes starting from the Museum of Oxford.

Tickets cost £10 per person and are available from the MOX Gift Shop or buy online (booking fee applies).

Suitable for 16+
