    You travel to Warwick Castle, one of England’s best preserved medieval castles.

    Stop At: Stow-on-the-Wold Market Square, Stow-on-the-Wold England
    Our first stop of the day is in Stow on the Wold, the highest of the Cotswolds Towns. The large market square is testament to the huge markets and fairs that were once held in this hill top market town. Cosy cottages, tiny tea shops, and green gardens: this is your quintessential English village.
    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Broadway Tower, Middle Hill, Broadway WR12 7LB England
    Eighteenth-century hilltop folly located atop Broadway Hill, the second-highest point in the Cotswolds.
    The literature claims that you can see 16 counties from the top of the tower – on a clear day, definitely as far east as the Chilterns and as far west as the Brecon Beacons.
    The tower has connections with William Morris (the nineteenth-century artist who described Bibury as ‘the most beautiful village in England’ – he liked the tower so much that it led him to establish the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings) and was also used by the Royal Observer Corps during the Cold War;
