Useful to book activities, but you need to know what you are after as staff is not always fully informed on what's going on - however they are all very kind

Sandra met us spot on time. We did wonder if our 9 and 11 year olds would concentrate for 2 hours, but we had no need to worry. The tour was full of wonderful facts and information, extremely interesting too. Being faced with an international group of people didn't phase Sandra who was humorous and personal even for our Harry... More

I had never been to Oxford before, and so stopped by to ask for some directions to a good eatery. The very helpful lady pointed me in the right direction without any fuss and she was spot on with her recommendation of the Vaults and Garden Cafe.

I visited to get information on bus passes and was politely directed to the Oxford Bus Company counter in Debenhams. Afterwards, I learned I could buy certain passes on board the busses. I'd like to have known that!

This is a large well stocked Visitor Centre with young friendly and customer focused staff who can answer questions and make your visit to Oxford worthwhile. Could not be any more different from the centre at Cambridge.
