Tour Description
Unearth the stories of those who are often left out of traditional narratives of Oxford: Women, people of colour, and LGBTQIA+ individuals.

This guided journey around Oxford will go back in time to highlight the many ways women have historically experienced the urban space and family life, uncover how masculinities have shaped and been shaped by the university, and discuss queer experiences in the city.
