Coach trip to Oxford and Stratford Upon Avon

Join us on a private coach trip for a one day tour to some of the most wonderful areas of England, where we will drive through the rolling hills and fields of the classic English countryside.

Our first stop is the city of Oxford. World famous for its university - the oldest in the English speaking world having been founded in the 11th century, Oxford is a delight to visit. Stunning architecture, fascinating history, a unique academic atmosphere and environment, Oxford has something for everyone

We will then drive through the Cotswolds. This is some of the best countryside scenery in the whole of England. Green fields and hills mixed with wonderful little towns and villages full of classic golden coloured houses and cottages. 

We'll be driving through this area with the chance to stop and see some of this fantastic scenery.

We will stop and take pics at Blenheim Palace (but not go inside)

We will then arrive at Stratford-upon-Avon. Stratford Upon Avon is steeped in the history of its most famous resident, William Shakespeare. This Warwickshire country town contains the home where Shakespeare was born, the cottage where Anne Hathaway resided before their marriage and the church where the couple is buried. It is also built around the picturesque River Avon.


So in a nutshell


The plan is to meet at 

9.00 - 9.15 outside Bayswater Station where our air conditioned coach will pick us up. We will then drive down to Oxford. We will depart at 9.30.


11.00 Approximate arrival time in Oxford and go for our walking tour. The meeting point for everyone making their own way is in the city centre, 
opposite Fudge Kitchen, 5 Broad Street, Oxford OX1 3AJ, where you will see a lovely blue 
bicycle. The tour will start at 11am.


2.00 Drive down through the stunningly beautiful Cotswolds and drive past Blenheim Palace where we can jump off and take a few pics (not go inside)


3.00 Arrive at Stratford Upon Avon -and then do our own thing and wander around the picturesque town 


6.00 - Jump back on the coach and enjoy the scenery and entertainment (we can bring our own DVD / music / naats etc


8.00 - Arrive back in London

The price of the trip is £25 per person.

    1 · February 26, 2014

    • Sajna

      Just to clarify, my mums a very social person who wants to explore the UK and loves going abroad so it would be great if she could hang out with like-minded women (most her friends can't keep up with her walking pace, let alone her adventurous side!). Any steer/help would be greatly appreciated

    Apologies I can no longer attend as it clashes with a work event that weekend :(

    February 26, 2014

  • Sajna

    Salaam all, Mum and I are not going to make it after all (partly due to the increasing intensity of my marathon training and the predicted rain over that period of time). Two spots should therefore become available. Please do organise some trips in April (after the London Marathon!) as looking forward to meeting like minded Muslim adventurers!

    February 21, 2014

    • Sajna

    Salaam all. I'm new on here. The day trip to Oxford sounds great. Unfortunately I won't be able to make it, but I hope there will be more trips coming up especially as the weather warms up which Inshallah I hope to attend. As a suggestion, perhaps a day or two day trip to Europe?? Looking forward to meeting you all. Ruby

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
