Full description
Travel into Britain's past as you escape the hustle and bustle of London. Start off the day with a short walking tour of Oxford, home to one of the world’s most famous universities. The ivy-clad colleges that make up the university are seen as some of the finest architecture in Europe. There will be some free time to shop for souvenirs before heading through the Cotswolds towards Stratford. Private tour of Shakespeare’s Schoolroom and Guildhall Described as ‘one of the most atmospheric, magical and important buildings in the whole of Britain,’ Shakespeare’s Schoolroom and Guildhall opened it’s doors to the public for the first time in 2016 to mark the 400th anniversary of the writer's death. Step back in time to the 1570’s when William Shakespeare was a pupil learning to read and write, and see the room where leading theater companies came to perform - a strong influence on the young playwright. You will be invited to enjoy a private tour before the school opens to the public in the morning, including the chance to take part in a Tudor lesson, write with a quill and ink, witness the rare medieval wall paintings, and much more.  Stratford-Upon-Avon The birthplace of William Shakespeare, the greatest writer in the English language and home to the theatres of the world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company, Stratford is a charming market town set in the heart of rural England. A delightful river winds its way through the town, past the beautiful Holy Trinity Church, where Shakespeare lies buried. See some wonderful half-wooden buildings that date back to Shakespeare's time, including Shakespeare’s birthplace. Warwick Castle This is, quite simply, the greatest medieval castle in Britain. With a history that dates back over 1,000 years, Warwick Castle will take you back in time to a world of sumptuous banquets, bloody battles, and royal splendor. Enter over the footbridge and explore the castle's ramparts, towers, and gardens. Oxford and the Cotswolds Oxford, the city of dreaming spires, boasts one of the world’s greatest and oldest universities as well as some of the finest architecture in Europe. The colleges themselves, which make up the university, are amongst the architectural highlights, their ivy-clad stone walls protecting beautiful chapels, halls and libraries. Soak up the atmosphere of this remarkable town with a guided walking tour of the city or take tea in the shop where the real-life Alice (inspiration for Alice in Wonderland) bought her sweets! Your trip to Oxford promises an unforgettable experience for young and old alike. On the way to the remarkable city you will also enjoy a short drive through the scenic Cotswolds.

Great Day Trip for Tourist

I highly recommend this trip to tourist who would like to experience a different take of England - from its countryside to Shakespeares, to castles, architecture and all. The tour guide was exceptional in terms of providing information, touring us around and making us feel comfortable around the places and feeling secure. He made us feel we stepped into a world of cities we have been through. The coach was clean and the driver was nice. The places we have been through were very nice, historical and interesting. That's what made these places unique. This is something that every person would need to see and experience.

Everything in the tour was excellent. We were disappointed though, with the fact that Christchurch College in Oxford did not allow us to visit the premises where Harry Potter movies had been filmed filmed (visiting them was one of the reasons that lead me to book with you for the Saturday Tour instead of the Sunday one, when you visit Brassnose College.)

Great day !

A nice break and contrast in the middle of our 5-day trip to London. We had a great day with just enough time at each destination to give us an idea of what they can offer. We are definitivelly coming back to Oxford and Stratford/Avon for a full day or two. Our hosts Dan an Leo guided us well and drove the comfortable bus smooth and safe. As we also were very lucky with the wheather, this day became absolutelly great! Next time in London we'll for sure try some of Premium Coaches other trips!
