Description

Oxford
Oxford’s celebrated education history is world-famous – a number of significant people from C.S. Lewis to Bill Clinton have studied at Oxford University. Home to the oldest university in the English speaking world, Oxford is a bustling town full of ancient squares and cobbled streets. See the historic Bodleian Library with its ornate entrance and swooping door – it’s been a haven for hard working students for hundreds of years!

Cotswolds

After Oxford, we’ll drive through the gorgeous, rolling hills that make up the Cotswolds. A blend of bustling towns and sleepy villages sweep across the landscape – you’ll see the best of the English countryside as we pass through!

Stratford-Upon-Avon

This market town was home to the brilliant playwright and poet William Shakespeare – it doesn’t need any other introduction! See the half-timbered house where the Bard grew up and explore Stratford-Upon-Avon – a thriving town packed full of history and culture.

Shakespeare's 450th  Birthday

2014 is the perfect year to explore the history of Shakespeare as the country celebrates The Bard’s 450th birthday this April! William Shakespeare’s hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon has been celebrating the famous playwright’s birthday for more than 100 years and the festivities include a vibrant mix of pageantry and performance.

Residents of the town mingle with visitors to watch the grand Birthday Procession as it parades through the historic spine of Stratford and ends with the laying of flowers on Shakespeare’s grave at Holy Trinity Church. Spectators can then join in with the community parade and walk through the town alongside costumed players, musicians and creative groups. There will also be a programme of special events and activities to enjoy at the Shakespeare family homes, plus free entertainment in the streets and parks of Stratford!
