Oxford, Warwick Castle and Stratford-upon-Avon Day Trip from London
- Popular choice with kids
- Hotel pickup included
- Led by a local guide
- All entrance fees included
From Oxford, travel onward by coach to Stratford-upon-Avon to visit the birthplace of William Shakespeare (own expense): one of the greatest writers in the English language. Then, enjoy some free time to explore the market town that’s home to the theaters of the famous Royal Shakespeare Company. A river winds its way through the town past Holy Trinity church, where Shakespeare is buried. There are half-wooden buildings which date back to Shakespeare's time, including the cottage of Anne Hathaway, who he married in 1582. After exploring, enjoy lunch in one of the town’s many cafes or restaurants (own expense).
Continue from Stratford-upon-Avon to Warwick, home to Warwick Castle. With a history dating back over 1,000 years, the castle will take you to an era of banquets, battles and royal splendor. After entering, your guide will leave you to explore independently. Listen to an introduction to the historical site from Warwick Castle’s history team, and then explore the site at leisure. See the waxwork displays from Madame Tussauds that are showcased at the castle, and see and hear of the Earl of Warwick's preparations for battle. Then, perhaps take a look at the ghostly dungeons where prisoners were tortured.
When your stomach starts to growl, head to the conservatory or castle library to enjoy an afternoon tea. Dine on fresh fruit scones with clotted cream and jam and sip on your choice of tea or coffee; it’s the perfect way to finish your Warwick Castle visit! Then, simply meet your guide back on board your coach to travel back to central London.

This was a wonderful tour that was fully worth the money. David was a knowledgeable tour guide with amusing vignettes/comments about various landmarks and sites on route. He used his university connections to get us into view one of the colleges at Oxford (Balliol) and made sure that everyone had time to get something to eat or to use the facilities. We were lucky to have outstanding weather, which made the tour even more memorable.
