Great tour, great tour guide and driver. We had plenty of time at each location and didn't feel rushed. It was a fantastic day all up.
Shakespearean fans rejoice! This is the tour for you!
We started at Warwick Castle were we were allowed around two hours on the premises to see the interior of the castle. It is now owned by the same company that manages Madame Toussaud's wax museums, so the exhibits benefited from their experience giving the tour a more lively idea of how people lived back then, than just looking around at some clothes, artifacts or paintings without much context. Be sure too look around the whole grounds to see the dungeon, the arching range, the trebuchet still in use for shows!, and there is a walk around the castle walls, which unfortunatelly we did not have enough time to see.
Afterwards, we came to the pièce de résistance on Stratford upon Avon, and as you can imagine, the economy of the town revolves around the Bard, so you can even see Shakespearean door knockers on the houses. First you are lead by your guide to Shakespeare's birthplace, where you should stay about half an hour there's not that much to see, and take a look at the store they have several Shakespeare themed souvenirs. Afterwards, I'd recommend going stright to Trinity Church where the actual Shakespeare remains lie, it's about 10-15 minute walk form the birthplace, depending on your pace. Be aware that this church is still an operating church, as we found about when we arrived, since there was a funeral going on, and we were not allowed, understandably, inside the church to take pictures.
Afterwards we moved onwards to the Cotswolds, which is a very rural typical british zone, it's not very interesting really other that the ocassional thatched roof house, trademark of the zone.
Finally we arrived at Oxford, the university itself is intertwined with the city so it's a very interesting mixture of normal living and college life, the tour guide will take you to see the outside of several buildings, and afterwards will leave you with some free time to walk aroud the town. Try and go to the free science museum. Its collection consists of several insturments used for measuring which are nothing out of the ordinary, but they also happen to have Albert Einstein's blackboard, so be sure to check it out.
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Full-sized bus tour and gray way to see so many sights in one day. Warwick Castle was an unexpected pleasure.
Excellent trip. Well paced - neither rushed nor too slow. Cotswolds drive-through went too fast.
This was a wonderful tour, with a very informative guide Leslie. We loved every moment of this trip! There's just enough time in each area to see and do all the highlights. A must for any Shakespeare fans!
