Itinerary
Day One
We'll leave the local area this morning, and head towards Warwickshire, arriving at your hotel in good time for you to rest and relax before dinner.

Day Two


Oxford, home to one of the world's greatest and most historic universities, has been a centre of scholarship for over 800 years. Visit the Great Hall in Christ Church - the inspiration for Hogwarts' Hall in the Harry Potter films or Magdalen College - its landmark tower dominating the High Street. Discover the treasures of the Ashmolean Museum, browse the covered market, take a stroll along the river or simply relax over a meal in the iconic Grand Cafe.
Day Three

Today we head into the gently rolling hills and ancient woodlands of the Cotswolds. Browse the shops in delightful Moreton-in-Marsh. Wander along one of the longest high streets in England, lined with a delightful mix of Tudor, Stuart and Georgian buildings, in Broadway. And stroll the streets of Bourton-on-the Water, with its attractive low bridges across the River Windrush.

Day Four


This morning we'll visit the Royal Crown Derby Porcelain Company. In the company of a friendly guide you'll learn how this fine bone china is made, and watch craftsmen hand-paint each piece. 

Our next stop will be Lichfield. Visit its magnificent, three-spired cathedral, browse the interesting shops that line the city's narrow medieval alleyways, and perhaps find out about the life and work of Lichfield's famous son Samuel Johnson.
Day Five

We head for home, today, arriving back in the local area by early to mid evening
Further Information

Coach seating arrangements

Your seats on the main coach will be allocated for you in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible. Your Tour Manager or driver will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)

Joining your holiday

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.

Meal arrangements

Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.

Triple rooms

The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
