London is a buzzing metropolis with activities and entertainment, while outside the capital, rolling hills and beautiful countryside scenery await. Here are a few ways to escape London  on a day trip and see sides of the region many visitors miss.
 
Oxford — 60 miles (96 km) from London
Oxford, called “the City of Dreaming Spires” by Matthew Arnold, is home to one of the world’s oldest universities, and it attracts visitors from across the world keen to explore its historic streets and admire its beautiful architecture. Visit the Bodleian Library and Christ Church College, and take in nearby attractions such as Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick Castle.

The Cotswolds — about 100 miles (160 km) from London
From small villages, such as Snowshill, to historic market towns, such as Tewkesbury, and the rural landscapes in between, the Cotswolds are one of the prettiest stretches of countryside in England. Admire sweeping views over the hills and pastures, and visit nearby sites such as UNESCO–listed Bath and Stratford-upon-Avon.
 
Stratford-upon-Avon — 100 miles (160 km) from London
Birthplace of renowned 16th-century poet William Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon is home to magnificent Tudor architecture, beautiful countryside scenery, and centuries of colorful history. Stroll along the streets and discover top attractions including Anne Hathaway’s cottage and the Church of the Holy Trinity, and explore nearby sites of interest such as Oxford and Warwick Castle.

Stonehenge — 103 miles (165 km) from London
Stonehenge, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has been beguiling scientists and visitors alike for centuries, and the origins of the mystical site remain a mystery. Stroll around the Stone Circle and marvel at the historic structures, and combine your tour with a visit to Bath and Windsor Castle.
 
Bath — 116 miles (186 km) from London
The UNESCO World Heritage–listed city of Bath boasts beautiful Georgian architecture, historic squares, and panoramic views over the River Avon. Explore the 18th-century cobbled streets, admire the beautiful Royal Crescent and the Roman Baths, and learn of famous ex-residents such as author Jane Austen.
 
Paris — 285 miles (458 km) from London
Paris lies within easy reach of London—and perhaps the easiest way to visit is by train. Roll through the English countryside and under the Channel, and emerge into a land of fine wines, traditional culture, and delicious cuisine. In Paris, explore with a hop-on hop-off bus tour, take to the waves on a Seine River cruise, and discover top attractions such as the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral.
