Explore Shakespeare’s Stratford and wander through some of the most charming villages and rural scenery of the Cotswolds on a guided one-day tour from London.

Visit Stratford-upon-Avon

Start the day with a luxury coach ride to the medieval market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of legendary playwright William Shakespeare. Visit the quaint, half-timbered house where he was born, accompanied by a guide who will share insights and stories about Elizabethan life.

Next, you’ll get a chance to explore Anne Hathaway’s cottage and gardens, where the Bard courted his bride. The thatched farmhouse still features original furniture and plenty of interesting period items.

Explore the Cotswolds

Hop back on the coach and make your way to the stunning Cotswolds. This designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty features idyllic villages amid rolling hills.

Enjoy the best of the Cotswolds scenery with photo stops at three stunning spots, including Bourton-on-the-Water and Bibury.

After a day exploring the gorgeous British countryside, head back to London in time for dinner.
