- Historic heroes and crumbling castles meet with modern-day celebrity mansions on this insightful introduction to central England's most engaging people and places. Do you want to tour the back roads of the Cotswolds and Shakespeare's land but don't want to join a large coach group? Looking for a little flexibility and spontaneity in your itinerary? Do you have a few days to really get deep into the English countryside?
Virtually, all of the "must-see" icons a first time visitor to London and England wants to see. Oxford, Stratford, the Cotswolds, Avebury, Lacock, Blenheim Palace and Warwick Castle. Usually, it takes three separate day tours from London to cover all of these. If you do it this way, however, over the three days you waste at least eight (yes, eight!) hours of your precious holiday time sitting on a coach traveling the freeway and fighting London. People totally underestimate the time it takes getting to and from these sites from London.
All accommodations are chosen on the basis of style, friendliness of welcome, location, historical interest and cooking. All are three star but may include 17th century working farm houses, 17th century coaching Inns, pubs, guest houses, small family run hotels and manor houses.
With a maximum group size of 11 and a university educated guide/driver, you are sure to have a memorable and personal experience.
