Visit the mediaeval ramparts of Warwick Castle, stroll down the charming avenues of William Shakespeare’s home town, experience the magnificent architecture on college campuses in Oxford, and drive past idyllic cottages in the Cotswolds. This fascinating day tour reveals the best of England.

Leave London behind on board a comfortable tour bus as you drive out to the English countryside, reaching the stunning Warwick Castle on the edges of the Avon River. With nearly 1,000 years of history to explore, this impressive castle boasts multiple towers, ramparts, banquet halls, and a terrifying dungeon.

Continue along the river’s edge through the rolling hills of Warwickshire to Stratford-upon-Avon, a market town that sits on the outskirts of the Forest of Arden. If you’re a Shakespeare fan, you may choose to visit the Tudor-style birthplace of the world-famous playwright, as a half-timbered house has been carefully furnished to recreate the interiors of his childhood.

Your next stop is in the college town of Oxford, where you embark on a walking tour through the cobbled city streets to see the famous Bodleian Library and the lovely college courtyards, the perfect place to sit and relax to take it all in. Before heading back to London, your last stop for the day is in the Cotswolds, where numerous picturesque cottages with honey-coloured walls and thatched roofs line the narrow roads.

We had a great time. It was awesome seeing and learning about so much history. The tour guide was VERY knowledgeable and personable. I wish I could remember her name. It began with a C. And our driver was excellent. I think his name was Mark Anthony? The drive through the Cotswolds was so picturesque. We got to see it covered in snow - absolutely beautiful! We really enjoyed Oxford and seeing where Shakespeare was born. Straton-Upon-Avon is a pretty city on the river. I would go back there to spend more time shopping and taking in the beauty. Warwick Castle was cool too.
