Pass By: University of Oxford, University Offices 1 Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD England

The University of Oxford is a collegiate research university in Oxford, England. There is evidence of teaching as early as 1096,[2] making it the oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world's second-oldest university in continuous operation.[2][12] It grew rapidly from 1167 when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris.[2] After disputes between students and Oxford townsfolk in 1209, some academics fled north-east to Cambridge where they established what became the University of Cambridge.[13] The two 'ancient universities' are frequently jointly called 'Oxbridge'. The history and influence of the University of Oxford has made it one of the most prestigious universities in the world.

Stop At: Warwick Castle, Castle Lane, Warwick CV34 4QU England

Journey back 1,100 years to Medieval England with a visit to magnificent Warwick Castle. Rising high above the River Avon and set within 64 acres of rolling landscaped gardens, you will have the opportunity to explore the lavishly decorated State Rooms and 17th-century Great Hall; a room boasting an impressive collection of artefacts including suits of armour and medieval weapons. Bring the history of Warwick Castle to life at the Time Tower and enter the multi-sensory Kingmaker attraction to learn more about the famous historical figures that feature throughout the incredible history of Warwick Castle. Whilst there, why not enjoy a live display of typical medieval sports such as jousting and archery?

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Shakespeare's Birthplace, Henley Street, Stratford-upon-Avon CV37 6QW England

This ancient market town is perhaps most famous for being the birthplace of William Shakespeare, widely regarded to be the greatest writer in English literature and the world's greatest ever dramatist. You'll visit the 16th-century half-timbered house where Shakespeare was born in 1564 and grew up. Enjoy a fascinating insight into tales of his family life and admire rare artefacts on displays from the Shakespeare Trust's world-class collections.

Catia and driver Mike made this experience awesome! Catia is so knowledgeable of the history surrounding the places and she shared it with us I’ve learned so much on this tour. Definitely recommend it.

Our tour guide was funny, lovely and her knowledge about history was beyond! It was very nice listening to her talk about those places.
My friend and I only wish we had more time in Oxford, we only did a quik tour of the outsides of some buildings of Oxford university.
Warwick castle is beautiful from the outside, but inside is not really authentic, it's more for kids, as they are a lot of reconstitutions.
Stratford was great we had lunch there, there is more time there to explore a bit if you're not going into Shakespeare's house!
Lovely cafes and shops! Overall a great day out of London!

Fairly good tour, fitting in a lot in one trip. Great commentary on board the bus, friendly tour guide. Warwick castle was nice, quiet on the day, more for kids but there is some stuff to amuse adults note of advice, buy the ticket to see the castle otherwise you will miss out on seeing a fairly nice castle. One complaint was that we rushed through the cotswolds without any stop for a photo, the windows of the bus were so grimy that you could barely see out of them let alone take a photo. Stratford was good skipped the Shakespeare tour and just walked around town a bit, Oxford was really short, small tour noting some famous colleges and buildings and a couple minutes to walk around. Little rushed, but over all a good tour. Thanks.

I could easily skip Oxford as a stop and spent more time at Stratford upon Avon and Warwick Castle. Good day trip. The staff were very professional and friendly.

Jul 2019

The tour was quite rushed and it doesn't actually stop through the Cotswolds like I expected. You just drive through a small section of it and don't really get to see much of it at all.
The tour guide was lovely but for the few hours that you do spend it certain cities, it's not well organised.
Normally a fan of organised day trips but this one was a bit of a letdown for me.

Great tour. Our tour guide was very good and very informative. Would recommend.

Jul 2019

I enjoyed visiting the sites at Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon. However, I am very disappointed the coach that there was no stop,
only drove through the Cotswolds (I finally found that it has mentioned very subtle on the tour itinerary). I may suggest the tour organiser should delete it as to avoid any misunderstanding. Finally the tour guide spent very long time for each site in Oxford, perhaps she needed to take care of two languages in a tour.
