Oxford - We leave London and travel through the Chiltern Hills to Oxford - the 'City of Dreaming Spires', its origins go back 1000 years and its streets are dominated 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 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 where mellowed buildings, many half timbered, line broad streets. We visit the must-see Shakespeare’s birthplace which gives a fascinating insight into life as it was when Shakespeare was a child.
Warwick Castle - With its magnificent mediaeval towers and ramparts, Warwick Castle offers visitors over 1000 years of English history. The chilling dungeon contrasts with the elegant splendour of the State Rooms, baronial Great Hall and the Victorian 'Royal Weekend Party 1898'. Visitors can experience the sights and sounds of mediaeval life in the 'Kingmaker' exhibition. All set in 60 acres of English grounds and gardens.
