On this excursion from London, experience the magic of Oxford, known as the “City of Dreaming Spires”. Then discover another literary great in Stratford-upon-Avon and its most famous resident—Shakespeare. Enjoy a taste of medieval Britain at Warwick Castle and Christchurch College
Your tour begins on arrival in Oxford, where you head out on an introductory walking tour of the stunning centre with its Gothic churches, chapels and ivy-clad college buildings. Take some free time to wander the cobbled streets and learn more about the city’s culture.
Drive through the countryside to reach the historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon, which has many lovingly preserved buildings dating back to Shakespeare’s time—including the house where “The Bard” was born. During a guided tour of his birthplace, gain insight into Elizabethan England, as well as Shakespeare’s formative years.
Finally, get a medieval experience as you cross the drawbridge into the splendid Warwick Castle. Visit Christchurch College, once considered the most aristocratic, and stop by the Tussaud's Studio, which brings to life tales of treachery, torture, passion and power at one of Britain's finest castles.
