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.
