Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This seamless tour includes entry to Warwick Castle and Shakespeare’s Birthplace, plus an Oxford walking tour.
Depart from Victoria Coach Station, 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 at Victoria Coach Station.

Our trip was outstanding! We had Anthony Matthew's as our guide and his knowledge was incredible and entertaining. His since of humor made the trip special and he made it a point to get to know all 18 people on the tour. Warwick Castle and Oxford were beautiful! Stratford upon Avon and the Shakespeare sights were nice as well. You only drive through Cotswold and do not stop so it being part of the tour name is a little misleading but overall it was a great day trip out of London!

This was a nice distraction from London. Oxford was a fun small town to see - the guide walks you around for about a 1/2 hour and then you have about a 1/2 hour of freetime. Unfortunately you couldn't see the campus, not sure if it was because the school was closed due to holidays or what so that was disappointing as we wanted to see it for our daughter. A half hour really isn't enough time to shop either, needed at least another 1/2 hour to not feel rushed. Next was Stratford-upon-Avon - truthfully this was a town to skip or at least steal the 1/2 hour from for Oxford. The tour includes admission if you want to pay in advance (don't) for Shakespeare's house, not worth it, you spend about 5 minutes in here and then are done. Then you have way too much time to wander around (the shops are stores you can see anywhere, i.e. Zara). Warwick Castle was definitely the highlight and worth seeing if you love castles.

Nice trip. Lots to see. Need more time to enjoy, may be extend a trip for another hour. Warwick castle is nice and to explore would be better if there was a n extra hour. Oxford and the Shakespeare birth place were nice highlights. Our guide David was nice and so was the driver Vin

Very nice tour. Warwick castle is beautiful, the gardens really nice and be sure to watch the launch of the medieval sling, which is great. Stratford upon Avon is a small town with lots of William Shakespeare's lore. Visiting his house was interesting. Finally, Oxford is a very beautiful town, really worth it. All in all, this was a very good tour, and I definitely recommend it.

Katia was our tour guide and she was fabulous! She was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. We had a wonderful day filled with history, stories and anecdotes. We would highly recommend this tour! We loved the variation of the trip and being able to see four different places made it so special. Thanks you Viator!
