Overview

Historical landmarks, areas of outstanding beauty and traditional British villages – just a few elements that make this the perfect place to explore. Based in the academic city of Oxford, there’s plenty to discover in its ancient streets and beyond. Our journey begins with a river boat tour and afternoon tea, with an expert guided tour to follow. Here we experience one of the oldest and most famous libraries in Europe with a tour of the Bodleian Library. There are also visits to the UNESCO-listed Blenheim Palace and Hidcote Gardens, one of the UK’s finest Arts and Crafts gardens. A trip to the Cotswolds wouldn’t be complete without a tour of its towns and villages with their famous  honey coloured Jurassic limestone buildings and cobbled streets of its towns and villages, and so we tour the rolling countryside, stopping at the likes of Bourton on the Water, Stow on the Wold and Chipping Camden, with time to explore.
