3-Day Stratford-upon-Avon, the Cotswolds & Oxford Small-Group Tour from London

The thick-walled castles inspired Shakespeare's battle-torn tales. The narrow cobbled lanes kindled his love stories’ twists and turns. And the deep, green valleys encouraged him to write about monsters, myths, and magic.

On this adventure, we take you through the landscapes that sparked his imagination and his inspirational hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon.

But this tour isn’t just about the famous playwright.

You find yourself a little tipsy as you sample a local beer in a small brewery. You feel princely as you walk through the ancient hallways of Blenheim Palace. And you become snap-happy as you wander over the trickling rivers and peaceful hills of the Cotswolds.

Learn about Shakespeare’s inspirations and discover England’s most famous landmarks on this three-day small group tour from London.
