Driving through the picturesque region of the Cotswolds and its tiny villages, you will stop at Bourton-on-the-Water, the "Venice of the Cotswolds", Stratford-upon-Avon and tour the university town of Oxford.
What to Expect
Oxford is an ancient university city with hundreds of students cycling around. This is the world's oldest English-speaking university with nine centuries of learning during which some 40 colleges have been founded and in which students learn, live and eat. Visit (entrance included) one of the oldest colleges (normally Brasenose College, Balliol College, Trinity College or New College). On the guided walk, you will also see the Sheldonian Theatre, the Radcliffe Camera, the Bodleian Library, and the gothic University Church of St Mary's. You will also pass by buildings featured in films such as Harry Potter.
Then, make your way to the enchanting market town of Stratford-upon-Avon. It conserves a rich arquitectural heritage especially of the Elizabethan era, with dramatic black and white timber buildings from the 16th and 17th centuries. Pass the same original house where William Shakespeare was born. During your free time, you can either choose to enter this house or visit Shakespeare's tomb. Hear the stories of Shakespeare, see the places where he and his family lived and worked and feel the atmosphere which is essentially English, essentially Shakespearean.
Drive through the Cotswolds, a landscape of smooth hills and scattered villages. En route, pass through Woodstock and Blenheim Palace, the home of the Dukes of Marlborough, where the country's most famous Prime Minister in history, Winston Churchill, was born.
