The exhibition has been created in partnership with the Tales of Our City project and Oxford Pride, and co-curated by members of Oxford’s LGBTIQA+ community.

    Tour for the 08/02/2020 booking through Eventbrite

    Join the Museum of Oxford as we take you on a tour around Oxford’s magnificent Town Hall. You will visit the Medieval Cellar, the Council's Court Room and the Council Chamber, plus more*. This is a unique opportunity to see the 'other' side of Oxford's history - you've seen the Gown, why not take a look at the Town? 

    All money raised through our tours goes towards the development of the new Museum of Oxford.

    * the rooms visited on the tour are all subject to availability. The town hall is used for lots of different functions, so we can't always get everywhere we'd like to! 

    These tours are suitable for adults. Although nearly all areas of the Town Hall are fully accessible for wheel chair users, please note that there are only steps down to the Medieval Cellar. 

    We also offer tours for groups, please email [email protected] or telephone 01865 252417 with your enquiry.
