Visit Oxfordshire are delighted to assist in suggesting or arranging itineraries for tour operators and travel writers visiting Oxford and Oxfordshire. We work with VisitBritain, VisitEngland and Tourism South East who vet and refer journalists to Visit Oxfordshire. We are also approached by journalists direct.
To facilitate arrangements journalists are asked to provide as much information as possible on their requirements and brief. This information is passed to the Partners who are invited to host a visit.
Visit Oxfordshire also deal with general press enquiries - often several in one day.
