This tour includes luxury coach travel, a walking tour through the University City of Oxford, a scenic drive through The Cotswolds with photo stop opportunities, an orientation tour of Stratford Upon Avon (the birthplace of Shakespeare) and free time to explore and the service of a tour manager.

After our central London pickups we make our way to the birthplace of William Shakespeare, Stratford- Upon- Avon. You will be given a short orientation walking tour. Millions of Shakespeare enthusiasts flock here annually to relive his life and appreciate his work. You will also be given some free time to explore Stratford where you may enjoy discovering more about Shakespeare’s life by visiting Ann Hathaway’s cottage and gardens (entrance not included) or perhaps you may enjoy shopping in Stratford with its many choices ranging from gift shops to antique shops, boutiques to bookshops and plenty more.

We then take a scenic drive through the beautiful Cotswolds villages, an area in Southern England renowned for its beauty and unspoilt honey stone-built houses, historical towns and stately homes and gardens. The coach will stop at certain point so that you can take some wonderful pictures of the scenery and surroundings.

Our last stop of the day is to the city of Oxford, otherwise known as the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’, where you will enjoy a walking tour with your guide who will point out many points of interest such as The Sheldonian Theatre, Balliol College and the museum of History of Science. You will again be given some free time to take a look around the city. You may wish to visit some of the points pointed out to you on your walking tour or perhaps visit the oldest university in the English-speaking world, the University of Oxford (please note: some of the colleges may be shut during certain times of the year and admission fees may apply) or maybe climb the Carfax tower for magnificent views of the city.

After a full day we will begin our journey back to central London arriving at approximately 7pm (your tour manager will give you an exact time and location to meet back at the coach).

Please note: From 1st April 2018, entrance to Shakespeare's birthplace will not be included in the tour. Instead, a guided walking tour of Stratford upon Avon will be provided.
