Welcome to Oxbridge Tours first blog entry. I am Christopher Dobbing, CEO of Oxbridge Tours and a Third Year Politics undergraduate at Pembroke College Cambridge. Firstly, I should tell you about who we are and what we do.
We offer walking tours of Oxford and Cambridge for corporate groups, schools and tourists led by current students.
Oxbridge Tours was formed over Summer 2010 to help students pay for the cost of studying in the UK. We offer walking tours of Oxford and Cambridge led by current students who have been trained in the history of the City, but who also offer a lively and entertaining insight into student life. We hope to expand the model to other University Towns in the future.
So far our feedback has been great and we're very excited about the future.We're working many of the major hotels in Cambridge. Here's a few of our favourites:
Crowne Plaza Cambridge - A grand 4* Deluxe hotel in the heart of Cambridge. We have a special promotional rate of £122 B+B on offer to our clients. Contact us through www.OxbridgeTours.com for more information.
Hotel du Vin - A gorgeous 4* hotel with an incredible restaurant attached. Perfect for Cambridge's Fitzwilliam Museum.
Doubletree Hilton - The First Doubletree in Europe. It has a wonderful riverside location where you can watch the punts go by with a drink. Perfect for those long summer days.
Royal Hotel Cambridge - A charming hotel close to the city centre. Great for large groups.
Felix Hotel - A charming stately home a few minutes drive from the Centre of Cambridge. A sublimely relaxing home-from-home with a brilliant food menu and friendly, attentive staff.
All are great hotels, depending on what you're after. In this blog I'll be talking about what's on in Oxford and Cambridge as well as advice for what to see and do while you're here.
With 1,800 years of history between them, it can be quite overwhelming knowing where to start. My advice after you arrive in any new city is to to get lost wondering the streets and find some charming little cafe to enjoy a relaxing drink. Now you can sit back and absorb some of the culture.
In my next posts I will give advice on the must-see sites of Oxford and Cambridge.
