Travel to Oxford and the Cotswolds, visit Shakespeare's birthplace and experience medieval life at Warwick Castle.
Start the day with a luxury coach trip to Oxford, home of the oldest university in the English-speaking world. Your guide will show you all the highlights of this university city on a walking tour, including a visit to the beautiful University Church of St Mary the Virgin. Explore the cobblestoned alleyways, the lovely college courtyards and the towering architectural spires before you board the coach for your next stop.
Cotswolds and Stratford-upon-Avon
Head on to the Cotswolds and Stratford-upon-Avon. Keep your eyes open on your drive as you pass through stunning countryside, quaint villages and bustling market towns. In Stratford-upon-Avon, the half-timbered house that is Shakespeare's birthplace (entrance included) is a must-see, along with the rest of the pretty streets which are perfect for a stroll.
Travel back to medieval times at Warwick Castle where upon arrival you'll be greeted by a special medieval host who will offer an introduction to this impressive embattlement.
Visit the Great Hall and you'll find yourself immersed in battle preparations. Feel the huge weight of a medieval sword and try out some of the armour. Elsewhere in the State Rooms, get stuck in to Victorian party preparations and learn about the ways of life inside these stunning castle walls.
