What You Can Expect

Oxford, Cotswolds, Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick Castle Day Trip from London

Pass by The Cotswolds on this full-day tour from London

Depart from your central London hotel or Victoria Coach Station, and then travel by luxury coach to the famous city of Oxford, known as the ‘City of Dreaming Spires.’ 

On arrival, plug into your provided headset to help you hear your guide’s commentary, and set off on foot to explore time city. See the ivy-strewn, honey-hued university buildings that have inspired generation upon generation of scholars, including the likes of Kate Beckinsale and Bill Clinton. Visit Bodleian Library and the famous Christ Church College, which was featured in several Harry Potter movies.

After a break for food (own expense), continue through the beautiful Cotswolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and drink in views of thatched-roof villages as you travel to Stratford-upon-Avon. Here, visit William Shakespeare’s Tudor-ear home and make the most of free time to explore independently or have lunch (own expense).

Your final stop of the day is at Warwick Castle, which dates back to the Middle Ages. See its magnificent ramparts and towers; climb the staircase to the Princess Tower; or head down into the dungeons where prisoners were tortured. You can also stroll through the gardens, where falconry, jousting and archery take place in the summer.

Your tour concludes in the evening with a drop-off at Victoria Coach Station.

Good tour. Saw all as promised. Times were a little tight but that is to be expected on such a full day.

What a lovely trip this was, and worth every cent. The country-side was glorious, with carpets of yellow rapeseed canola in bloom, herds of sheep grazing in the green pastures, and the busy little villages with ancient buildings still in use! Our driver, Marco, was an excellent driver, and our tour guide, Monica, was outstanding in every way! Each place we stopped was steeped in history, and I'd take the same tour in a heart-beat!

Wonderful tour. Everything went very smoothly. Picked up on time and stayed on schedule throughout the day. Tony was very informative and handled the group well. Our bus driver was an expert. Oxford is amazing - the Cotswalds are beautiful you drive through only and loved Stratford-on-Avon and learning more about Shakespeare. Full day experience at a good price. We did this tour before our cruise out of South Hampton. Thank you Viator.

Great tour guide--very informative. Very comfortable bus. Each stop was great! Wished there had been a little more free time at each spot, but there was a lot of ground to cover. Highly recommend for a taste at each unique area!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

An excellent tour with lots of history and beauty, but it is a lot to see in one day. We would have liked more time at all three stops Oxford, Stratford on Avon, and Warwick Castle however that would have been a multi-day or much longer one day trip. Still very good even is a little rushed.
