What To Expect

Depart from central London and then travel by luxury coach to 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. You can also stroll through the gardens, where falconry, jousting, and archery take place in the summer.

Next, travel to Stratford-upon-Avon. Here, visit William Shakespeare’s Tudor-era home and make the most of free time to explore independently or have lunch (own expense).

Afterward, head 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 generations 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 refreshments (own expense), continue through the beautiful Cotswolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Your tour concludes in the evening with drop-off in London.

Warwick Castle

Over a thousand years of history are waiting to be discovered at this fantastic medieval castle. Set against the River Avon within 64 acres of landscaped parkland, this beautiful castle once belonged to the most powerful man in England, The Earl of Warwick. Learn how the 'Kingmaker' was the only man who dared defy the King, and how he defeated the armies of King Edward IV in battle before taking the King himself as a prisoner. Explore the lavishly decorated State Rooms and 17th-century Great Hall; a room boasting an impressive collection of artefacts including suits of armour and medieval weapons. In the castle's 14th-century gaol, the original dungeon, see graffiti left behind by prisoners hundreds of years ago. How many names can you spot?

1 hour 30 minutesAdmission Ticket Included

Shakespeare's Birthplace

This ancient market town is perhaps most famous for being the birthplace of William Shakespeare, widely regarded to be the greatest writer in English literature and the world's greatest ever dramatist. You'll visit the 16th-century half-timbered house where Shakespeare was born in 1564 and grew up. Enjoy a fascinating insight into tales of his family life and admire rare artefacts on displays from the Shakespeare Trust's world-class collections.

lisa_s, May 2022
The guide was absolutely lovely. She explained a lot of things. Too bad that we did not have time to see the falconery show at warwick castle.
What a wonderful London day trip!!!
Andrea_D, May 2022
Deborah was an amazing tour guide- knowledgeable, intelligent, witty, organized, funny, savvy- everything you could hope for in a tour guide. The driver, Matthew, was one of the very best we have ever had. They made the trip very enjoyable!

Loved all of the places,...
Rachel_L, May 2022
Loved all of the places, but not nearly enough time in warwick (the only reason I wouldn’t recommend it) It was very rushed and we didn’t get to see much. Stratford upon Avon and oxford had plenty of time to explore. The guide was knowledgeable and showed us a great time!
Response from Host, May 2022

We agree with you that we would love to allow more time in each venue however, due to time constraints unfortunately this is not possible. Thank you again for your feedback and we hope to welcome you on another tour in the future. Best wishes, Evan Evans Team
Welcome to Narnia
Timothy_L, May 2022
Warwick Castle was amazing. Love the history. The Archer was really good and funny too. Loved seeing the Shakespeare house. Enjoyed the rolling hills of the Cotswolds and the thatched cottages. Ildi was a great tour guide and I really enjoyed Narnia in Oxford.

MICHELLE_A, May 2022
I loved the Warwick castle! Would have liked more time there. Didn’t get much out of the Oxford stop. Stratford was a good stop with cute shops.
Wonderful!
Ramona_A, May 2022
We had a wonderful experience with Evans Tours. Ihdi, our guide, was informative and managed the bilingual tour flawlessly!
The guide needs to be better
susan_e, May 2022
The stops were very nice. We enjoyed the places. Even with therain mostly things were enjoyed. The guide ,Godfred mentioned no hot items on the bus. Then why did he have a thermos of hot coffee. At Oxford our boxes were cutting out and he never checked to see if they were working properly. Very frustrating.
Response from Host, May 2022
Dear Susan, We are very sorry to hear your feedback about our tour to Warwick, Oxford and Stratford upon Avon. What you describe is not in keeping with our usual high standards of guest experience, and certainly not in line with the vast number of positive reviews we usually receive for this tour. We would like to look into the matter to understand what happened. Please email details of your booking to reservations@evanevanstours.co.uk and we will investigate. All the best, Evan Evans Team

Warwick is a must.
Judy_H, May 2022
Loved Warwick Castle! Some armor, bed chambers, portraits, tapestries, working models making arrows, horseshoes, etc. Climb up the towers and climb down into the gaol, or dungeon. Grounds were beautiful! Shakespeare birth house very interesting while good pubs around for lunch. Walking a bit in Oxford was good as well.

The visit to Warwick Castle was the most spectacular followed by the visits to Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford via Cotswold region. It is pertinent to add that the tour operator was very knowledgeable, jovial with the right calibre of sense of humour making the tour unforgettable. Time just flied.
