Travel Itinerary

1. Oxford

Firstly, you’ll be driven by a premium mini coach to the charming city of Oxford, which is the gateway to the Cotswolds. Home to the oldest university in the English-speaking world that dates back 1096, Oxford is steeped in history and tradition. As you explore the city’s medieval center that is home to 38 university colleges, you’ll soon see why Oxford is nicknamed the “City of Dreaming Spires.” After a lovely day of exploration alongside an experienced tour guide, you’ll be driven to your hotel in the Cotswolds town of Chipping Campden.

2. Cotswolds Tour: Stratford-upon-Avon

After waking up in the elegant town of Chipping Campden, your Cotswolds Tour guide will take you to Stratford-upon-Avon. The town’s most famous resident, William Shakespeare, is the most celebrated English writer and dramatist of all time. You’ll visit the childhood home and final resting place of the greatest figures in the history of literature. Prepare to be moved by stories of his life and examples of his work. After a fascinating day out, you will return to your hotel in Chipping Campden forthe evening.

3. Cotswolds Tour: Castle Combe

On your way to Bath, you’ll stop in a place nicknamed “the prettiest village in England:” Castle Combe. It seems only natural that while visiting a quintessentially English village that you enjoy a quintessentially English activity: high tea at the Old Rectory Tearoom. This institution and its scones are so highly rated that reservations are mandatory; the good news is that your Tourlane Travel Expert will take care of this when you book the tour. After indulging in a delectable meal, you’ll be driven to Bath where you’ll check into your next hotel. 

4. Bath 

Famous for and named after its Roman-built baths, Bath is one of England’s most beautiful cities and a worthy UNESCO World Heritage site since 1987. Explore its exquisite Georgian streets, cross the famous Pulteney Bridge (England’s answer to Florence’s Ponte Vecchio), and of course, visit the Thermae Bath Spa: home to England’s only public baths that are heated by natural hot springs that lie below. 

5. Longleat 

On your way back towards London, the first stop on the coach journey will be Longleat House, one of England’s most famous stately homes. Your guide will show you around this majestic building that has a staggering 130 rooms--you’ll be wooed by its classic architecture and impressive interior.

6. Avebury

The final stop on your Cotswolds tour is Avebury, a Neolithic henge monument and stone circle located in WIltshire. You’ll have the opportunity to walk freely within this impressive attraction that is steeped in mystery and remains relatively undiscovered, compared to the more famous Stonehenge circle. After this, you will return to London where the tour concludes.
