Spires, Shires and Shakespeare - Oxford, the Cotswolds and Stratford Upon Avon Tour - what to expect

Stratford Upon Avon

Garden of Shakespeare's Birthplace

Garden: Shakespeare's Birthplace

Your day begins with a visit to Stratford Upon Avon, a charming market town set in the heart of rural England. Your first stop is Shakespeare's Birthplace Museum where Shakespeare and his brothers and sisters were born and brought up.

 

This house is furnished in period style, with rare artefacts on display and costumed guides, as well as up to date exhibitions.

 

Following the museum you will visit the Holy Trinity church where Shakespeare was both baptised and buried.


A panoramic tour of the town gives you a good overview of Stratford with some free time before you continue for a photo stop at Anne Hathaway's cottage. This is a beautiful timber-framed thatched farmhouse that was Shakespeare's wife's childhood home.

It is in Stow-on-the-Wold, a beautiful and impressive market town in the Cotswolds where you stop for lunch. You will see the attractive Market Square, a bygone of the town's former importance for its annual wool fairs.

Oxford

Bridge of Sighs Oxford

Oxford: Radcliffe Camera

From the Cotswolds your journey to Oxford takes just thirty minutes. Your visit begins with a guided walking tour amongst the cloisters and quadrangles of Britain's oldest University, founded in 1167 when King Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris.


Our guided walking tour will take you into the heart of this land of hallowed academia, to the Bodleian Library, to the Radcliffe Camera, Sheldonian Theatre, Harry Potter film locations and University buildings.


Entry is included to the Divinity School, built in 1488 for the teaching of theology. This splendid room is the University's earliest purpose built teaching room, and its first examination hall.


After the guided tour there will be some free time to enjoy the city, before you depart Oxford and drive back to London.

The small group tour difference

International Friends Small Group Tour Bus

Small Group Tour Bus

On this tour you will be travelling with no more than 16 other people - guaranteed!

Our purpose-built minibuses have large windows, good air circulation and clear PA systems so that your professional guide can escort you comfortably through our wonderful countryside.


The small group size means your guide can offer a more personalised guiding service. So don't hang back, ask your questions and you'll be helping the guide tune their commentaries to the interest of the group on board that day, every group is different!

 

Another advantage of a small bus is we can go places the big tours cannot and wherever possible we'll head off down a country lane to to show some hidden gem.
