Stratford, Oxford, Cotswolds and Warwick Castle from London

A Stratford, Warwick Castle and Oxford tour from London will certainly captivate you. These areas are suffused with natural beauty, charm and elegance. Immerse yourself in England’s history and scenery as you travel through rolling hills, admire picturesque villages, visit the birthplace of William Shakespeare and tour one of the most prestigious universities in the world.

Your day trip from London begins with a journey across the Chiltern Hills to Oxford, home of the oldest university in the English-speaking world. Enjoy a walking tour of this famous city. Follow in the footsteps of Oxford's famous students, from C.S. Lewis to Bill Clinton, as you stroll along the captivating college courtyards and cobbled lanes of this historic university town. Take in the famous 'dreaming spires' and see the Bodleian Library one of the oldest libraries in Europe on your travels. You'll be captivated by the unspoilt narrow alleys and ancient squares of this naturally beautiful town. Movie fans are sure to be impressed by Christ Church, instantly recognisable as one of the major locations for the Harry Potter films! Marvel at the magical grandeur of the Great Hall, used as the setting for Hogwarts.

Next, you'll travel through the rolling hills of the Cotswolds. Enjoy views of breath-taking countryside, sleepy villages, and bustling market towns as we drive through the charming scenery of one of England's most beautiful regions.

Arrive at Stratford-upon-Avon birthplace of the famous playwright William Shakespeare. Visit the picturesque half-timbered house where the legendary Bard was born with its typical parlour, bedrooms, kitchen and buttery to gain fascinating insights into his childhood.

The tour continues to Warwick Castle whose magnificent towers and ramparts remain mostly intact. You'll travel back through 1,000 years of history as you cross the footbridge to a bygone world of banquets, battles and ceremony. Climb the winding staircase to the Princess Tower, or, if you're feeling brave, visit the spine-chilling dungeons where prisoners were tortured. You might wish to take a stroll through the castle's lovingly tended gardens, where archery, falconry and jousting take place in the summer months.
