Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at 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 Englands capital.

Your first stop is the 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.

Next, head to Stratford-upon-Avon, the 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 make your way to 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 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.

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

  • Tour says this Visit Bodleian Library and the famous Christ Church College, which was featured in several Harry Potter movies.

    And I booked it hoping to visit the college but when we got there, it was too late. Do note not to join this tour if you're looking to go to visit the college as the tour will not be able to get there in time.

    Other than that, everything was ok.

  • Great - relaxing and enjoyable day.

  • Excellent trip ... Tour guide was very nice person , explained about each place in detail ...helped us in each leg of the journey ...very pleasant trip indeed

  • A good way to see a lot of places in one day.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Well organized trip. Disappointing weather. Only got to spend about 1.5 hours at each place but that is to be expected on a tour like this. Rob, the tour guide and Mike, the driver were great and very knowledgeable. Shakespeares's house is a bit disappointing, not too much to see unless you are a real Bard fan.

  • The trip was nice and our guide was super! It was a pity that we could not stop at Cotswolds as it is the key for me to join the tour.

  • Great tour! They take care of all the thinking and driving so you can relax and enjoy the sites.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Interesting tour. However tour guide could give more time for people who would like to take photographs instead of just walking quickly through the tour.
