Warwick Castle, Oxford, Cotswolds and Stratford-upon-Avon Custom Day Trip

Warwick Castle

Pop in your state-of-the-art Vox headphones as your tour starts and listen to your guide talking clearly about each site.

Warwick Castle
This morning's first stop is medieval Warwick Castle. Over 1,000 years old, marvel at its amazing towers. For those that dare, there's a visit to the dungeons where prisoners were tortured. Alternatively, stroll the castle's tended gardens. At Warwick choose to either:
  1. Enjoy a free guided walking tour of Warwick's town center where you can view well preserved famous old buildings.
  2. Tour the inside of Warwick Castle and learn more about the banquets, battles and ceremonies that took place here (cost Adult £25.80, Child £19.80, Seniors/Students £21.60).
Past the Warwickshire hills, you'll travel to William Shakespeare's birthplace; Stratford-upon-Avon. Here, you'll have the option to:
  1. Explore Stratford-upon-Avon, a market town located on the edge of the Forest of Arden and home to the world's greatest playwright.
  2. Visit William Shakespeare's Tudor-style half timbered home, carefully furnished to recreate the interiors of his childhood (cost Adult £15.90, Child £9.50, Seniors/Students £14.90).
The colleges in Oxford date back to the 13th century and among its famous students were Bill Clinton and C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and Lewis Carroll.
  1. Explore the cobbled streets of Oxford and see Bodleian Library and the picture-perfect college courtyards, for which Oxford is famous.
The Cotswolds
Admire the English countryside with its rolling hills. Thatched roof cottages and crooked houses of the Cotswold's are steeped in both history and heritage.

Entrance fees are not included, but can be purchased from your guide on tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

This is a great excursion but again, Viator should include the entrance fee to the castle. You definitely want to go inside and climb the towers.

excellent tour guide

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Friendly and knowledgeable tour guide, highly recommended! The bus driver was very nice and friendly too. The guide gave us some really interesting facts about the places we visited, but the format of the tour also allows you to explore things on your own. Highly recommend you stick with the guide for the visit to Oxford as she took us to some really nice places, and had some great information that I wouldn't have seen on my own. Best seats in the bus are usually up front, so get there early if you can :
