What You Can Expect
Hop off your coach and stretch your legs on a leisurely-paced stroll with your guide, admiring the city’s golden-colored buildings and ‘dreaming spires.’ Head inside one of Oxford University's oldest colleges and see the beautiful old chapels, dining room and quads.
After soaking up Oxford’s oh-so English charm, return to your coach and continue your tour north to Stratford-upon-Avon, traveling through the Cotswolds’ winding roads. From the comfort of your coach, sit back and relax, seeing the gorgeous hamlets, atmospheric churches and quintessentially English countryside for which the Cotswolds are so well known.
Stratford-upon-Avon is a handsome market town that’s famous as the birthplace of William Shakespeare. On a walking tour, admire the town’s pretty half-timbered houses that date back to Tudor times, and learn about Shakespeare’s life in the town, hearing tales of his inspirations, muses, and, of course, his world-famous plays. You’ll have free time to enjoy here after your tour, so perhaps visit Shakespeare’s Birthplace to see the rooms where he grew up, or maybe pay a visit to his tomb in Holy Trinity Church. Entrance fees to both attractions are at your own expense.
Head back south to London, and then finish your tour in the early evening, at either Harrods or Oxford Street.
