Oxford, the Cotswolds and Stratford-upon-Avon Day Trip from Oxford including Shakespeare's Birthplace

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Greet your knowledgeable guide at a central Oxford location and climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan destined for Stratford-upon-Avon. Get acquainted with the rich history of Shakespeare’s birthplace as you travel, and then embark on a panoramic coach tour of the town on arrival. See the Holy Trinity Church, site of the playwright’s baptism, and then disembark at Shakespeare’s Birthplace, a former cottage transformed into a museum. 

    Enrich your literary knowledge further with a stop at the thatched cottage of Anne Hathaway, the wife of Shakespeare. Capture photographs outside of the quaint house and then travel onwards to the Cotswolds, a beautiful region famed for its charming villages and stunning scenery. Weave your way down narrow country lanes and enjoy whistle-stop tours of Burford and Upper and Lower Slaughter before revitalizing with lunch (at your own expense) in the traditional market town Stow-on-the-Wold. 

    Return to your coach refreshed and relax during the journey back to Oxford. On arrival, embark on a comprehensive walking tour of the historical city and see notable buildings belonging to the prestigious Oxford University. Listen to anecdotes surrounding famous figures who attended the university and see sites used to film the famous Harry Potter movies. 

    Bid your guide farewell near Oxford train station and continue exploring independently if you wish.

    This is definitely more expensive than some of the alternative tours. But what we got was a small tour with only 5 guests in an 8-seat minivan. We were able to get to many parts of the Cotswolds that large buses can’t reach. Our tour...More

    I really wanted to see Oxford, and just sort of took the Cotswolds and Stratford along with the package. As it turned out, we saw a lot, without a lot of terrifying driving. Although I enjoy watching the comedies, I don't consider myself a Shakespeare...More
