Turf Tavern – Oxford, By Tour Guide James.
In the back streets of Oxford, and hidden away, is the famous Turf Tavern.
It’s one of the most famous pubs in Oxford…indeed in England.
And it’s one of my favourite places to relax and unwind.
It is the smallest pub in Oxford. Reputedly it is the most haunted. (I could tell a terrible joke and say it’s the most haunted because its full of spirits!!!)
But it is also famous in Oxford for being the most romantic. As a student in Oxford, if you want to propose marriage to your partner you get down on one knee at the Turf Tavern. So how does it get that reputation? This beautiful and most romantic of venues is where Richard Burton proposed to Elizabeth Taylor.
So all you lovely romantics who join us on a tour, can enjoy a drink and a few quiet moments in this special place.
As I say, it’s hidden away but I know where it is!!
