Know More about this tour

Start your day meeting your professional guide at the prearranged meeting point in Victoria Coach Station to begin your tour. Hop aboard your first-class, luxury coach and relax as you travel northwest, away from the hustle and bustle of England’s capital.

Your first stop of the tour is Oxford. Known as the ‘City of Dreaming Spires,’ Oxford is home to the oldest university in the English-speaking world. On arrival, step out of your coach and enjoy a walking tour of the city center with your guide.

Plug into your state-of-the-art headset and listen to your guide talking clearly as you pass by the elegant, timeworn buildings and courtyard that have inspired generation of scholars, including Bill Clinton and his daughter Chelsea, Hugh Grant and Kate Beckinsale. See the Bodleian Library and Christ Church College, where Harry Potter scenes were filmed and where Albert Einstein studied.

Next, enjoy a brief stop for refreshments (own expense) before hopping back inside your coach and traveling through the rolling hills of the Cotswolds, an area steeped in gentle English beauty, history and heritage. Look out the window to admire the thatched-roof cottages and charming inns. On arrival in Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of the famous playwright William Shakespeare, visit Shakespeare's Tudor-era home, with its typical parlor, bedrooms, kitchen and buttery. After, enjoy some free time for lunch (own expense) at one of the many charming eateries.

Then it's a short journey to medieval Warwick Castle, whose magnificent towers and ramparts remain mostly intact. Travel back through 1,000 years of history as you cross the footbridge to a bygone world of banquets, battles and ceremony. Climb the winding staircase to the Princess Tower, or, if you're feeling brave, visit the spine-chilling dungeons where prisoners were tortured. You might wish to take a stroll through the castle's lovingly tended gardens, where archery, falconry and jousting take place in the summer months.

Your day trip then concludes back at Victoria Coach Station in the evening.

    David our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining! Loved that we were able to see so much in one day. Would love to go back and revisit Warwick.

    Good tour. Our blue badge tour guide was very knowledgeable and did a great job. Only issue was we really did not have enough time at any of the venues. Could have used another hour at both Oxford and at Stratford but what we did see was excellent. Our guide helped highlight the history and he was superb.

    Highly recommended. Wished they allowed more time for Cotswolds and Oxford and less time in Warwick castle but I still recommend this tour.

    A very nice tour. The weather was not great for the first half, but that's not the fault of the tour company. I recommend this one!

    Our tour guide made this stand out more than anything - he was wonderful! This is a highlights trip as he stated - so you don't get much time in any one place. But seeing all this in one day was fun! Oxford was enough time, Statford-Upon-Avon and Warwick Castle could easily be day trips in an of themselves - again this tour allows you to see a lot if you don't have time to do separate trips which is wonderful.
