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 England’s 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.

  • Trip was quite good but unfortunately it rained. Although this is not the tour guides fault he failed misearbly to take into consideration the fact that some had no rain coats. They were left very wet and cold, standing trying to listen to facts on the Bodlien library whilst soaking wet was very unpleasant .We were fortunate we had rain coats. T h e guide was not interested in their dilemma just wanting to continue with his well rehearsed spiel.
    It was disappointing that the guide appeared to have his own agenda at Stratford and left some older members behind. They eventualy caught up but only because of lines of people wating.
    There was then a rush through the Cotswolds to reach Warwick Castle thus missing an important part of the journey .
    The guide had no plan to cover for the rain and was more interested in trying to impress with his knowledge of the English language..If he told us once he told us 20 times he was a Pedant and loved language. I didnt pay to hear this.
    On the day this was not a good investment.

  • It was a wonderful day trip.The guide was very knowledgeable.I would recommend this trip as a must see when in London.

  • We had a wonderful day exploring all these beautiful castles!!!

  • This was simply awesome !!!!!

  • We had a wonderful day exploring all these beautiful castles!!!

  • Really great trip. Guide very informative during walk around Oxford.

  • Fabulous day. Our tour guide was so knowable. She was able to show us so many sights and allowed us the free time we wanted.

  • Wonderful day trip from London. Our tour guide was amazing...just enough time to see all 3 sites. Well worth the time.

  • This was not an enjoyable tour especially the Warwick Castle which is more dedicated for children than history.

  • Excellent service, the guide was great, too. This was a perfect, restful day trip outside of London to see iconic scenery and the city of Oxford. I only signed up for this tour for the scenery, Oxford and the castle, so the Shakespeare's sights/sites weren't my cup of tea.
    We had precise times at each stop and as always, I wish we could have had more time at each place, but that's how a three-stop tour is.
