What You Can Expect

Lunch in the Cotswolds from London

Enjoy lunch in the heart of the Cotswolds

Depart central London by comfortable, air-conditioned coach and venture into the countryside on your journey to England’s oh-so-pretty region of the Cotswolds.

As you travel, listen to your guide share interesting information about the region’s history and attractions, from its stone-built towns to its idyllic villages and lush, rolling fields.

Have your camera at the ready as your coach enters the undulating Cotswold hills, and stop first in the lovely town of Burford, famous for its wide main street and houses built from differently hued local stone. Enjoy a short stop to visit the tea houses and shops ranged along the street, and then continue to the picture-postcard village of Bibury. 
Stroll around the almost impossibly quaint 17th-century weavers’ cottages at the heart of the village, and then travel to an old Cotswolds hotel to enjoy a 2-course lunch from a menu that includes classic English dishes such as bread-and-butter pudding for dessert. As you eat, soak up the medieval atmosphere of the oak-beamed restaurant, and admire the stone fireplace that bears what are thought to be witches’ marks.

Duly refreshed, journey onward to the village of Bourton-on-the-Water and enjoy around an hour of free time here to explore. Then, make your last stop at Stow-on-the-Wold, a small market town that’s one of the Cotswolds’ most charming spots. Get another spell of free time to delve into this picturesque place, perhaps discovering its charming tea and gift shops, and snapping photos of its limestone townhouses.
Finally, take your leave of the Cotswolds and return to Victoria in central London where your tour finishes in the early evening.

It was a wonderful day outing to the countryside. Very superb driver. How does he fit the bus into these tight road so expertly?
The choices of towns were just enough and just long enough to enjoy without tiring of them. The very informative tour guide walked those of us who wished to go, to the back of a church where we saw an amazing door that inspired Tolkien to include in his Lord of the Rings trilogy. Loved that. Beautiful ancient churches, quaint shops.
I want to live there!
Loved the day! Thank you!

I recently visited London with a friend and we booked a one-day tour with Premium Tours called Lunch in The Costwolds. It was by far the highlight of our vacation in England. Our guide was Denise who was very passionate about her role as her guide to The Costwolds and landmarks along the way. Everyone had simply the best time and were all so glad we took this trip out to see such a remarkable part of the English countryside. The highlight of the trip was lunch at The Swan where we were treated to fresh trout from the local trout farm! Unforgettable in every way, and I highly recommend this tour and Denise as the tour guide.

Super interesting comments of Lucy and very helpful!

My eight-year-old daughter and I were so glad we took the opportunity to leave London for a day and explore the English countryside! Both our tour guide and bus driver were knowledgable of the area and entertained us with stories about Bibury, Burford and Stow-on-the-Wold as we traveled to the different villages. We had plenty of time to explore each place shop, eat, take pictures and visit spots they recommended - ie. the Swan Hotel, trout pond, oldest pub, the door at St. Edward's church that inspired The Hobbit, etc. Well-worth the money and time!
