Overview
See the best of south England in just one day on this this day trip from London. In a small group of no more than 16 people, enjoy seamless transportation between Shakespeare's birthplace of Stratford-upon-Avon, the charming Cotswolds, and the university city of Oxford. Benefit from deeper insight into your destinations on guided walking tours and get a look inside Oxford University, one of the best in the world.
What to Expect
Board your air-conditioned mini-coach in central London and settle in for the journey out of the city and into the English countryside.

Your first stop is the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, best-known as the birthplace of William Shakespeare. Embark upon a guided walking tour that takes in such important sites as Shakespeare's final resting place and offers insight into life during his time.

Back on the bus, continue onward to the Cotswolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which lures visitors to its rolling hills and charming postcard-worthy villages. Stop off in a few different spots to take a leisurely stroll and soak up the atmosphere.

Your next stop is the famed university city of Oxford where a guided walking tour enlightens you about its rich history while taking you to some of its best architecture, boutiques, and pubs. Then you can take advantage of your free time to explore further.

Afterward, get back on the mini-coach and relax on the journey back to London, where your tour concludes with a drop-off back at the departure point.
