Tour Schedule

Oxford

We arrive in Oxford.  When we get to Oxford, you will have 2 hours to explore this ancient city.  We include an introductory walking tour which will show you the best places to explore and help you to make the most of your time in the city of the spires.  Walk among the Golden-stone colleges from the grandeur of Christ Church to the intimacy of Corpus Christi. Consider a visit to some of the colleges – Christ Church was made famous recently by the Harry Potter movies and is the most visited.  Climb to the top of the 13th Century Carfax towers for unrivalled views of the famous city skyline.  Visit a cozy real-ale pub and enjoy the atmosphere! There is something for everyone in Oxford.

Avebury and Scenic Drive

After our visit to Oxford, we continue towards Stonehenge. We travel through some of the most beautiful countryside in England. You will enjoy passing through small traditional villages and lush countryside.  Your guide will point out some of the hidden gems on the way!  On the way we make a stop at Avebury.  Here you can enjoy a magical stop.  Avebury has a less famous stone-circle where you can actually walk among the stones!  There is also a haunted pub in the middle of the Stone Circle!  A true magical stop!  We then continue to Stonehenge!  Sit back, relax and enjoy the journey.

Stonehenge

We will shortly arrive in Stonehenge. This is a great time to visit as by this time of day it is generally less crowded and the experience is much more enjoyable.

We include your admission to the world’s most famous stone circle at Stonehenge.  New from 2014 is an architecturally designed visitor centre, which offers state of the art facilities for visitors to Stonehenge.  On arrival at the site, visitors will now travel by road train over to the stones.  This allows the old parking facilities to be returned to nature and makes the visit to Stonehenge even more special for the visitor.  You will have approximately 2 hours at the site in order to have a relaxed visit to enjoy the walk around the mighty stone circle and this will also allow time to enjoy the exhibition and have refreshments.



Important Information

Travel details

Depart 10.00am from Notting Hill Station

We aim to arrive back in Central London by 20.00pm approx.  On arrival into London we can drop off our start point at Notting Hill!  As the traffic is less stressful in the evening our main drop off is near Piccadilly at Green Park Station: this is walking distance to West End attractions, offers great tube connections, and is the start point for the “see London by night” sightseeing tours.



FAQ’s

Will the tour pick-up from my hotel?

Not unless you are staying at a hotel that is a designated pick-up (you will see options for these before you pay).  This is because of Government actions to help prevent pollution, no tour operators have been allowed to make individual hotel pick-ups since 1st April 2017.

Are there toilets on the coaches?

Some coaches have toilets, some do not, but on all tours there are regular comfort stops of no longer than 2 hours apart, plus all places visited have toilets on site.

Will we have time for a full lunch stop whilst on tour?

Unless you book a tour that includes a specific lunch stop then no.  Most tours are targeted at seeing as much as possible in one day and do not have time for a full stop.  There are options to buy food and snacks at all sites visited, but these can be expensive and most people prefer to bring food and drink with them.  Supermarkets, e.g. Tesco Express offer excellent and great value, pre-prepared food that is ideal for this.  Here is a store finder link.

Will the tour return to for example London at the time stated or can it be late?

Most tours return at the expected time, but this is always subject to traffic and it is possible there could be a delay and so it is always wise to allow plenty of spare time if you are planning on booking theatre shows, trains or flights etc. after your tour.

What clothes should I wear?

It is always wise to check the weather forecast before setting out.  It is good to plan in case of rain, with perhaps a shower coat and umbrella.  There will likely be quite a bit of walking on tours and comfy shoes are a must and if any of the tour is on grass e.g. Stonehenge Inner Circle tours then waterproof shoes are sensible.  It is often colder out of London than in London particularly if windy and a jumper or fleece in summer are wise and a warm coat in winter.

If visiting London how much time will it take to see all the main sites, will we have time for more than one out of London tour if we only have a week? How long in advance should I book tours?

It is a common mistake that people think it may take six days to see London and only allow a day for out of London tours.  However there is so much to see out of London that four days to go out of London will be an amazing experience to see maybe all these locations, Dover, Canterbury, Leeds Castle, Hampton Court, Windsor, Winchester, Glastonbury, Stonehenge, Avebury, Bath, Stratford, Oxford and Warwick.

There are excellent day tours of London that see all of the main attractions in one day and then perhaps allow a further two days to see the Making of Harry Potter Warner Bros. Tour and other London attractions not included on the main tours and do not forget to book your show/theatre tickets well in advance too.

These are all very popular tours, most sell out well in advance and it is wise to book your tours, theatre and attractions several months in advance and you will find good planning in advance will optimise your holiday.

Is it better value to tour sites of London and out of London sites on our own, perhaps hiring a car?

No, fixed tours of both London and out of London are much better value than visiting sites individually and you will find going individually entrance costs alone will add up to more than the fixed tours, even before you factor in travel costs.

Do tours pick-up from any of the London airports?

Sorry no tours depart or return from any UK airports.  There are however excellent rapid express trains for example the Heathrow Express.

Can you help me find a discounted best value hotel? Plus theatre/shows and other attractions?

Yes we certainly can and here are some useful links.
