Pass by The Cotswolds on this full-day tour from London

Depart from your central London hotel or Victoria Coach Station, and then travel by luxury coach to the famous city of Oxford, known as the ‘City of Dreaming Spires.’ 

On arrival, plug into your provided headset to help you hear your guide’s commentary, and set off on foot to explore time city. See the ivy-strewn, honey-hued university buildings that have inspired generation upon generation of scholars, including the likes of Kate Beckinsale and Bill Clinton. Visit Bodleian Library and the famous Christ Church College, which was featured in several Harry Potter movies.

After a break for food (own expense), continue through the beautiful Cotswolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and drink in views of thatched-roof villages as you travel to Stratford-upon-Avon. Here, visit William Shakespeare’s Tudor-ear home and make the most of free time to explore independently or have lunch (own expense).

Your final stop of the day is at Warwick Castle, which dates back to the Middle Ages. See its magnificent ramparts and towers; climb the staircase to the Princess Tower; or head down into the dungeons where prisoners were tortured.

It was a great tour! The guide was very knowledgeable and did his best to keep all the passengers comfortable. We did not spend much time in Oxford which was sad, however, in Stratford, we were given some free time.

We booked this tour last minute while in London and are very glad we did so! Our guide Reece showed his knowledge of history as well as his expertise in all things Shakespeare. He was very well organized and communicated extremely well throughout the day. This tour packs a lot in one day and should be viewed as a taste of each place rather than a full exploration of each location.
