The superb Hawkwell House Hotel in Iffley Village near Oxford is to host some of the tour operators attending the much anticipated Oxford Group Showcase on Monday 12th November.
Coordinated by the Bodleian Libraries and arranged by Steve Reed Tourism Ltd, the tour operators will stay and have dinner at the Hawkwell House on the Sunday night [11 November] after seeing attractions in Oxford that afternoon. On Monday, they’ll join with day delegates for an informative and highly enjoyable showcase.
The event commences at 10.00 on Monday 12th November in the Old School Quad at the Bodleian Libraries where the guests will be introduced to the top attractions in the city of Oxford.
City Sightseeing Oxford will be providing transport for the group including a tour of the Oxford sights.
All arranged with the aim of generating new group bookings for the heritage attractions of Oxford, the tour buyers will commence their day on the Monday with a tour of the Bodleian Libraries. This will include the famous Divinity School.
Before lunch in the Weston Library the VIPS will have a bird’s eye view of the famous Oxford spires from the top of the adjacent Sheldonian Theatre, next door to the Bodleian.
Next up will be a true hidden gem – The Museum of the History of Science. Again, next door to the Bodleian Libraries. The group of tour buyers will enjoy a tour of this unique attraction. The Museum of the History of Science houses an unrivalled collection of early scientific instruments in the world’s oldest surviving purpose-built museum building. The guests can discover objects associated with such diverse figures as George III, Einstein, and Lawrence of Arabia
And providing the finale to a great visit to Oxford will be the Oxford Castle and Prison. There, the delegates can enjoy a 360 degree panorama of Oxford, descend into the 900 year old crypt and can find out about the inmates of this well-known city landmark and tourist attraction. They’ll also be asked for their verdict on their showcase visit.
