Stratford-upon-Avon tours from London

A wide range of tours from London daily


Shakespeare's Birthplace Stratford Upon Avon

Shakespeare's Birthplace Museum Stratford-upon-Avon

Stratford-upon-Avon is well over 2 hours by tour bus from London. People who go to Stratford, although a very nice small town in its own right go for its Shakespeare connections.


Shakespeare himself was born and died in Stratford and there are many properties in and around the town that trace aspects of his life, mostly homes where either he or his close relations lived.

 

There is the church where he is buried, a birthplace museum and a major theatre company that performs his work all year round. You would be doing well to see all of this in one day, so a day tour from London that typically spends no more than 90 minutes in the town can only show you a small part of what the town has to offer.

 

Most, but not all tours have their visit to Stratford dominated by a visit to Shakespeare's birthplace museum.

 

Oxford, Stratford and Warwick Castle Tour

Perhaps the most popular tour that visits Stratford is the tour that visits Warwick Castle, Stratford On Avon and Oxford. On your journey between Stratford and Oxford this tour also provides glimpses of the Cotswolds, one of England's most scenic regions.


In Stratford the tour goes to the birthplace of William Shakespeare, the greatest writer in the English language, and home to the theatres of the world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company.

 

There are some wonderful half-wooden buildings that date back to Shakespeare's time, including the famous cottage of Anne Hathaway, who married the great writer in 1582. You can even see the school Shakespeare attended.

 

Warwick Castle with its 1,000-year history, is probably the greatest medieval castle in Britain. You will explore the castles ramparts, towers and gardens, as well as the waxwork displays of Madame Tussauds.

 

Finally at Oxford - the city of dreaming spires - you will see one of the world’s greatest - and oldest - universities, as well as some of the finest architecture in Europe. A guided walking tour of Oxford is included in the price. You might like to take tea in the shop where the real-life Alice (inspiration for Alice in Wonderland) bought her sweets!

Small Group Oxford, Cotswolds and Stratford Tour

Stratford lies on the edge of the Cotswold region, one of England's most scenic and unspoilt landscapes.

This tour will take you to Shakespeare's Birthplace as well as to Holy Trinity church where he was both baptised and buried.

 

The small group format is especially appropriate for a tour that discovers the Cotswolds as it enables the bus to go down the lanes and backroads that the big tour bus crowds cannot. Couple that with a knowledgeable guide who knows all the hidden gems this is an excellent option.

 

A visit to Oxford is part of the tour itinerary, complete with guided walking tour amongst the cloisters and quadrangles of Britain's oldest University; and also entry into Divinity School. This is your last stop of the day before returning to London.
