Stratford-Upon-Avon and the Cotswold in One Day from London
US$86.45
Overview
Combine shopping with Shakespeare on a full-day tour of Stratford-upon-Avon, the Cotswolds, and Bicester Village from London. Beginning with free time in Stratford-upon-Avon—medieval town and birthplace of William Shakespeare—you’ll continue to Bourton, known as the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’ due to its canals and cafes. Spend more free time browsing more than 130 high-end boutiques in Bicester Village shopping outlet.
What to Expect

At 8:30 a.m., our small-group tour takes you away from the big city of London and into the medieval town of Stratford-Upon-Avon, Shakespeare's birthplace. Take your journey on a luxury air conditioned mini-bus, USB and Wi-Fi ready.  Next travel through the 12th to the 21st century as your walk through this market town. You’ll be able to wander quaint side streets, independent shops and the open parklands along the River Avon. If Shakespeare is your thing, you can visit his childhood home (additional cost) which offers a tantalizing glimpse into his early life.

You will continue your day in the tranquil village of Bourton on the water, aptly named the “Venice of the Cotswolds”. Here you can enjoy a riverside stroll and cross the bridges that cross the River Windrush. There are lovely café’s here where you can enjoy lunch (own expense), or you are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy on the riverbank.

Tour returns to London at approximately 7:00pm

Please note that from November 01 2018 this tour will no longer visit Stratford-Upon -Avon and will visit Oxford instead.
