What you can expect

See some of the most beautiful spots in the UK on this excellent tour of Shakespeare’s home town Stratford-upon-Avon and an official Area of Outstanding Beauty, the Cotswolds. An expert guide leads the way, regaling you with stories and interesting facts about the rich history of these beautiful places.

The home town of legendary playwright William Shakespeare is the first stop on this day trip. Filled with history, there are plenty of houses and cottages that still stand in the traditional half-timbered style. Explore the town at your own pace, soaking up the unique atmosphere of this special place.

The Cotswolds
Visit what is often agreed to be one of the most beautiful areas in the whole of the UK. Quaint villages and breathtaking scenery, the Cotswolds looks like it jumped off the pages of a storybook. The tour makes photo stops at three stunning Cotswolds villages: Bourton-on-the-Water, also known as ‘Little Venice’ due to its low bridges and stone banks, Burford which features an ornate medieval bridge and Bibury, a town once described by William Morris as ‘the most beautiful village in England’.

Anne Hathaway’s Cottage
Have the special experience of visiting Shakespeare’s famous bride Anne Hathaway’s cottage and gardens. An unassuming, quaint thatched farmhouse, this amazing piece of history features many original items of family furniture, including the Hathaway bed. Surrounded by stunning gardens, see where Shakespeare courted his future bride – simply unmissable!

After a wonderful day of sightseeing, arrive back to London at the approximate time of 6.30pm.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, we have removed lunch packs on all of our tours for the foreseeable future.
