Know More about this tour

After a pickup from Victoria Coach Station, travel by coach to Stratford-upon-Avon to visit the birthplace of William Shakespeare: one of the greatest writers in the English language. Take a private tour of Shakespeare's Schoolroom before it opens to the public, and enjoy a school lesson included with your tour. Then, enjoy some free time to explore the market town that’s home to the theaters of the famous Royal Shakespeare Company. A river winds its way through the town past Holy Trinity church, where Shakespeare is buried. There are half-wooden buildings which date back to Shakespeare's time, including the cottage of Anne Hathaway, who he married in 1582. After exploring, enjoy lunch in one of the town’s many cafes or restaurants (own expense).

Continue from Stratford-upon-Avon to Warwick, home to Warwick Castle. With a history dating back over 1,000 years, the castle will take you to an era of banquets, battles and royal splendor. After entering, your guide will leave you to explore independently. Listen to an introduction to the historical site from Warwick Castle’s history team, and then explore the site at leisure. See the waxwork displays from Madame Tussauds that are showcased at the castle, and see and hear of the Earl of Warwick's preparations for battle. Then, perhaps take a look at the ghostly dungeons where prisoners were tortured.

Then travel to Oxford, a city that boasts one of the world's greatest and oldest universities as well as some of the finest architecture in Europe. See it all on a walking tour, and learn all about the colleges themselves, with their ivy-clad stone walls that protect the beautiful chapels, halls and libraries.

Then, simply meet your guide back on board your coach to travel back to central London.

    This was an amazing tour, a long day but totally worth it! The tour guide was fantastic he was so knowledgeable providing a great introduction to each site and general history along the way. I absolutely loved this tour and would highly recommend!

    I highly recommend this trip. It is well organized and our guide, Claudia, was very good. The day started at Warwick Castle which is an interesting, an very old, castle. We have just under two hours to spend there. Next was a visit to the birthplace of William Shakespeare. After an informative trip through his family home, we were given plenty of time to explore the town on our own. We arranged our own lunch there in Stratford and I enjoyed a very good lunch at a local pub. The last stop was to Christ Church, Oxford. Wonderful!!! The only negative thing of this trip is that because of the time change at this time of year, the sun went down at 4:45 so we left Oxford in the dark. Otherwise, the day was well worth it!

    This would be a great tour with any two of the destinations, but I found it too rushed with the three. Warwick Castle is beautiful, but we suffered from unfortunate timing, as the entrance to the tower was closed after the trebuchet firing until 15 minutes before our departure time. Had I known it was a choice, I would have opted for the tower over the trebuchet. Still, the latter was interesting. A few of us did run up to see the tower, but it was a hurried affair. There is much to see outside the walls as well, so don't miss it. Stratford was interesting, but I could have used more time. You have enough to see the house, but not to wander too far. Oxford was amazing, with the Hogwarts dining hall and all the different buildings, but the time was too short. Our guide provided excellent commentary, but it slowed down our pace and I would have preferred to see more, but that is just my view. I am definitely going back to Oxford on my own next time to visit more thoroughly.

    I had a great day with Irish John as our tour guide. He was a terrific wealth of knowledge. Fun and polite to all. He kept us on schedule too. Great locations I had not seen before. Loved Warwick Castle even with all the Hollywood enactments and scenes. They helped that era come alive for me.

    I found the Oxford, Warwick Castle and Stratford-upon-Avon Day Trip from London to be a very enjoyable tour. It was leisurely, enjoyable and our tour guide seemed to be prepared and knowledgeable, our driver courteous. I would have enjoyed additional free time in Stratford-upon-Avon, as I thought it to be a highlight in the days events.

    Very impressed and highly recommend! Guide was great, very interesting and fun. We learned a lot of interesting things. We had enough time at each location to see it. Loved Warwick Castle, Oxford and Stator Upon Avon. Bus very nice and comfortable too.

    This tour was very nice - however be warned that the day starts off stressfully at Victoria Coach Station. However, once you're on the tour bus, you can sit back and relax. The tour guide we had was very informative and told us about each stop before we got there. It is a whistle stop tour, so you don't get much time at each location. We quickly made our way through Warwick Castle and ran back to the bus before heading off to Stratford-upon-Avon. We we're excited about this stop, but it was a disappointment. The Shakespeare museum was so packed wall-to-wall people that it didn't feel safe. It would have been nice to go see some other sites off the beaten track, like Anne Hathaway's house. The star of the show was Oxford. We enjoyed this tour so much, we want to go back and spend more time. Make sure you do Christ Church Oxford, because that made the entire tour worthwhile. Several people on tour who didn't select the option wanted to add it at that time, but weren't able to. We also got to skip the line and we made it in before the masses, which was nice. If you're a fan of Harry Potter, you will love this place. Parts of the movie we're actually filmed here and it was just a beautiful place to visit.

    Great tour! Lucy was our guide and she did a splendid job! Because we were with the tour group, we were able to avoid the long lines to enter places. The only thing that could have improved the day, would be to spend more time at each of the sites. However, I realize it would be difficult to see all three I none day if more time were spent at each one. All in all, a fabulous, fun day!
