Tour Schedule

The Cotswolds Scenic Drive

The iconic chocolate-box English countryside, with quaint villages, bustling market towns and gentle hills. Enjoy a relaxing start to our tour as we drive through a landscape that oozes British charm.

Shakespeare’s Birthplace in Stratford-Upon-Avon

Home to William Shakespeare, Stratford-Upon-Avon is a typical English market town. We’ll explore it as we head to his birthplace and visit the house he grew up in. Costumed guides and resident actors at the house will even perform elements of the Bard’s work on request.

Warwick Castle

The castle dates back to 1068 and during this extended visit you’ll get a chance to enjoy an authentic medieval experience. Wield a sword and become a knight, or see the State Dining Room set out as it would have been for a Victorian formal dinner.

Free Snack Pack Lunch

Provided on board, this tasty cheese and salad sub sandwich, packet of crisps, chocolate cookie and bottle of water lets you spend more time sightseeing without having to worry about trying to find somewhere for lunch.

Oxford Walking Tour

Led by a professional guide, this tour will give you an opportunity to experience the historic City of Oxford first hand.

The University was founded in the 13th Century, and is the oldest in the English-speaking world. Famous Oxonians range from Sir Walter Raleigh through Oscar Wilde to J.R.R. Tolkein and Prof. Stephen Hawking.

See the 17th Century Bodleian Library, which holds some of the rarest treasures of research and literature in the world and contains over 11 million printed items, and take a walk though the college courtyards that dot the city.

Brasenose College Visit

Founded in 1509, Brasenose is named after the famous bronze door knocker that adorned the door to its hall. The chapel boasts fabulous architecture in both Gothic and Baroque styles.

Past students include the writer William Golding and Monty Python star Michael Palin – renowned as possibly the nicest man in Britain.

After Oxford we will return to London for approximately 7.30pm.

Free Walking Tour of London

Choose between the Beatles Walking Tour and the Royal Walking Tour.

Important Information

  • Bookings made after midnight UK time for a same day tour will not receive a free snack pack.
  • During peak periods, WiFi may not be available on some coaches.
  • The hotel pick-up service will not operate from 1st April 2017 so clients will need to make their own way to the’ Visitor Centre in Victoria.


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.
