KEY SIGHTS ON THIS TOUR…

Stratford Upon Avon

Arriving at the market town of Stratford we come across the birthplace of William Shakespeare. Born in an unassuming cottage on Hanley Street in 1564 to John Shakespeare and Mary Arden. We’ll explore Shakespeare’s birthplace including the exhibition about his life and times and the cottage that has been lovingly preserved for over 400 years.

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds are akin to stepping into a landscape painting. It is one of the largest Area’s of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England, covering almost 800 square miles. The region is famed for its picture-perfect cottages, rolling English countryside & historic market towns. We’ll drive through this beautiful countryside and stop at a few of our favourite spots to explore the highlights as our journey continues.

Bourton On The Water

A charming English stone village in the heart of the Cotswolds, Bourton is often referred to  as ‘The Venice of the Cotswolds’ because of its canal network, arched bridges and buildings up against the water. The tree-lined waterways make this an idyllic setting for a stroll through the village exploring shops, bakery, cafes and a quirky motor museum.

Bouton also houses a Birdland Park and Gardens and adjacent hedge maze, popular with children. Or visit the model village, a replica of Bourton, in Bourton. Grab a bite to eat at the 17th c. Dial House.

Along the way your tour guide will give you a deep insight into this region with stories and facts. Returning to London at the end of this trip your camera will be full of photos and you will have memories that will last a lifetime.

BRILLIANT. […] Alexander was absolutely fantastic. He was a wealth of knowledge, speaking not just about Mary Queen of Scots, but the historical period more generally

You will be able to see the highlights of Edinburgh in a day and it’s excellent way of travelling especially now because of COVID-19. He was very knowledgable and had good sense of humour.
