Gulliver’s Guides is a specialist tour-guiding business, based in Oxford. Founder Tony Gulliver is a is a qualified Blue Badge driver-guide, running tours in the Heart of England and beyond – to the Cotswolds, Stratford, Bath and Stonehenge, as well as Windsor, the Wye Valley and Shropshire. He also happens to be a descendant of the Banbury Gullivers, whose tombs in St Mary’s churchyard inspired Jonathan Swift to a name for the protagonist of Gulliver’s Travels back in the early 18th century. So why not embark on your own journey of discovery!
With Gulliver’s Guides you can drop in on Shakespeare’s birthplace; visit ancient sites like Stonehenge, Avebury and Viroconium; and see landscapes that inspired authors and composers such as Tolkien and Elgar. You can explore great gardens and stately homes; enjoy pretty Cotswold villages and their arts & crafts; and discover world-famous cities such as Oxford and Bath. Admire great cathedrals like Gloucester and Salisbury, and castles like Windsor and Warwick. You can even journey to the cradle of the Industrial Revolution; go walking in the hills and perhaps visit a film location or two.
Gulliver’s Guides can collect you from the airport (Heathrow or Gatwick) and take you to Oxford or anywhere in the region. The journey can take in Windsor Castle and the Thames meadow at Runnymede where King John signed the Magna Carta. The route back to Oxford then takes us through the Chiltern Hills to Henley and Wallingford, the heart of Midsomer Murders country.
