Discover Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford & Warwick Castle on our day tour from London. This is an amazing way to experience the incredible history, heritage and culture of England in one action-packed day trip! We’ll explore the birthplace of William Shakespeare, walk the streets of a world-famous university town, and visit the most impressive medieval fortress in Europe! Plus we’ll even have time to enjoy some good old-fashioned English cooking with a traditional pub lunch!
Having picked you up from Central London early in the morning, our first stop is Stratford-upon-Avon…
1. “To be, or not to be: that is the question!”
Welcome to Stratford-upon-Avon, or better known as “Shakespeare’s hometown”! This is the place where the world’s greatest playwright was born and raised, right in the heart of the English Countryside and next to the flowing waters of the pretty River Avon.
We’ll visit the old schoolroom where William Shakespeare studied as a child. This is one of the most important buildings in England, and we’ll enjoy an exclusive private guided tour of this inspiring site just before it opens to the public! Take part in a Tudor lesson, write with a quill and ink, witness the rare medieval wall paintings and much more!!
Following our visit to Shakespeare’s schoolroom, we’ll head to a good old-fashioned inn to enjoy a traditional English pub lunch! After all, it was William Shakespeare who once wrote “Appetite, a universal wolf”, and we couldn’t agree more 🙂
2. Warwick Castle
Having satisfied our appetite and taste for all things Shakespeare, we’ll hop onboard our luxury coach and head to Warwick Castle. This awesome place is almost 1,000 years old and has played a major role in shaping the history of Great Britain.
Warwick Castle is home to the world’s most powerful catapult, one of the biggest and most deadly military machines of all time. You’ll get to explore the ramparts and towers, stroll around the beautiful gardens, and learn about all the famous battles that took place on this site! Warwick Castle is so awesome that Tripadvisor reviewers have consistently described it as “amazing”, “wonderful”, and “a great day out!”
From Warwick Castle, we’ll take a drive into “ye olde England”, along the windy roads, past the pretty villages and through the lovely green rolling hills. Our final stop of the day is Oxford…
Bodleian Library in Oxford
Oxford is the second oldest university town in the world and, once upon a time, was even the capital of England! This place has published more writers per square mile than anywhere else in the world, is home of the Real Alice in Wonderland and is instantly recognizable from its prominent role in the Harry Potter movies.
We’ll enjoy a walking tour of Oxford’s city centre, walking along the old cobbled streets, soaking up the incredible history, and passing many of the famous university buildings. Alternatively, if you fancy chilling out for a bit, you’ll have the chance to take tea* in the shop where the real-life Alice (the inspiration for Alice in Wonderland) bought her sweets!
*Tea is not included in the tour price 🙁
This concludes our Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford & Warwick Castle tour. From here it’ back to London, and we’ll arrive back at Victoria Station around 7 pm.
