Description

The Cotswolds
Covering an area of 800 square miles and running through five counties (Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire, and Worcestershire), the Cotswolds is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) famous for its honey-coloured stone and rolling hills. As you drive through, you will see quintessential English countryside as well as picturesque chocolate box villages and lively market towns dotting the landscape as far as the eye can see. 

Warwick Castle
Get to grips with everything medieval at the fabulously interactive Warwick Castle! Built by William the Conqueror, the fortress dates back to 1068 and still gives a thoroughly authentic medieval experience in the 21st century. Feel the weight of a sword and become a knight, see the State Dining Room, decked out for a Victorian dinner party, or venture inside Warwick Castle Dungeons to learn about the gruesome 300-year-old local history. There are a host of attractions, live shows and entertainment for all the family and friends. 

Stratford-Upon-Avon & Shakespeare’s Birthplace
Set on the banks of the River Avon, Stratford-Upon-Avon is a beautiful market town in the Warwickshire countryside. Steeped in culture and history, it is known for being the birthplace and home of renowned English poet, playwright and actor, William Shakespeare. Walk through the house he grew up in and uncover tales of the Shakespeare family life as well as original objects including cooking pots, an oak cradle, boarded chest and more. 

Walking Tour of Oxford
Oxford is famous for being home to the oldest university in the English-speaking world – countless bright young things have wandered the town’s cobbled streets over the years! During this guided walking tour, you will see the stunning Bodleian Library and furtively discover unspoilt narrow alleyways, ancient squares and towering spires. See the 13th century University Church of St Mary the Virgin. Soak in spectacular sights of the unique baroque design and architecture as you explore the centre of the University of Oxford.

After visiting Oxford, you will leave the university city and return to London.

Estimated arrival time back to London is around 7.00pm.
