Suitable for all ages, the walks take 1-2 hours each and are wheelchair and buggy friendly. Each 16 page booklet contains two walks, a brief history of Oxford, a detailed map with two walking routes marked on, and a series of directions and clues (Hints as to where to find the answer, and the answers can be found towards the end of the booklet).
