Morse, Lewis & Endeavour Tour of Oxford • Private

Visit the pubs and streets familiar to the famous Oxford detectives.


1 hour 45 minutes


"On this guided Morse Tour of Oxford the old city is the backdrop to the on-screen escapades enjoyed by audiences across the globe since the 1980s. Your guide will share fascinating historical information about the colleges, pubs, streets, houses and other places familiar to Morse and his fellow detectives, as well as interesting anecdotes on how the show and characters were developed.

To many, Oxford has long been associated with its famous University. However, for fans of Inspector Morse, Lewis and Endeavour it is the murder capital of the world, where homicide, corruption and vice run rife.

The City of Oxford has been the setting not only for the Inspector Morse books and TV series, but also its spin-offs – Lewis and Endeavour. On the Inspector Morse Tour of Oxford with Lewis and Endeavour Sites, you will be able to take a closer investigation into the world of author Colin Dexter’s famous detective creation.

Although the tour route varies slightly each week depending on which colleges are open, you will get to see locations familiar to Morse, Lewis and Hathaway. Many scenes have been filmed in the heart of the old city where the tour starts, including places like The Randolph Hotel, the White Horse pub and Broad Street to name but a few of the most popular locations.

You will get to visit the actual locations from the series, including a visit to one of the colleges* used in the show, hear fascinating historical information about the old city of Oxford and go behind the scenes of Inspector Morse."
