The Cotswolds, Bath & Oxford 2-Day Tour

Highlights / General details

Day 1:

Leaving the great city of London behind us today we head west. We arrive at the pretty village of Avebury. Here we will be able to wander amidst the largest stone circle in the world and a World Heritage Site. Nearby is also the site of the Marlborough White Horse, which was cut in 1804 by a party of boys from Mr. Greasley's academy. Not far from here, set in rural Wiltshire, is Lacock village, famous for its picturesque streets, historic buildings and its more recent role as a television and film location. The Abbey, located at the heart of the village within its own woodland grounds, is a quirky country house of various architectural styles. We spend some time in afternoon in Bath, suffused with relics of its Roman past and of course it’s famous Bath. From here we continue to Cirencester, set in the heart of the Cotsworlds, which is so quintessentially English. Cirencester was the second largest town in Britain during Roman times!

Day 2:

We will discover some more of the Cotsworld scenery and villages. You will see some outstanding countryside with river valleys, water meadows and beech woods, sleepy ancient limestone villages, historic market towns and for being so ‘typically English’ where time has stood still for over 300 years. Our visits will include Bourton on the Water, also known as the ‘Venice of the Cotsworlds.

It is a picturesque village with many of the traditional features unique to this area. Next stop will be Stow-on-the-Wold, the highest town on the Cotsworld and packed with charming traditional houses. The quaint village of Woodstock cannot be missed to conclude your tour of the area, with a photo stop at Blenheim Palace. In the afternoon we visit Oxford, renowned for over 900 year as a centre of academic excellence. Discover at your own pace the college courtyards, unspoilt narrow alleys and the historic town square. Harry Potter fans might want to see Christ Church, where many scenes from the films have been shot. The grandeur of the Great Hall has formed the basis of Hogwarts Hall! Later that day we return to London arriving at approx. 7pm.
