About Oxford, Stratford & Cotswolds
Oxford - We journey through the Thames Valley to Oxford, ‘City of Dreaming Spires’, whose origins go back 1000 years and whose streets are framed by the stone walls of the colleges. Our tour takes us through some of the university buildings where your guide will tell you of famous past students, and the age-old traditions of college life that endure to this day.
Stratford-upon-Avon - Although famous as Shakespeare’s birthplace, Stratford is a charming market town in its own right. Mellowed buildings, many half timbered, line broad streets and we visit Shakespeare’s birthplace. We also visit Anne Hathaway’s cottage, a pretty thatched building where the author’s wife was born. This house is very much as she would have known it.
The Cotswolds - No area in Britain is more beautiful and enchanting than the Cotswolds. Our tour takes us through quiet villages each with their particular heritage. Everywhere we go you will see signs of our past, either in the great houses, small churches, the rolling landscape and fertile valleys. The Cotswolds is a complete picture of the English countryside.
