Full description
If you find yourself in London on Christmas day, why not spend your day touring Oxford, the Cotswolds and Stratford-Upon-Avon and enjoying a traditional Christmas lunch.

Your tour will begin at 08:45 at the Golden Tours Visitors Centre. Here you will board your luxury coach and meet your professional guide. Your guide will provide commentary about the sites you visit throughout the entire tour.

Your first sop will be in Oxford. Renowned for over 900 years as a centre of academic excellence, follow in the footsteps of its famous students. Bill Clinton, Lewis Carroll and C.S. Lewis. Explore the university town of Oxford at a leisurely pace and take in the Bodleian Library and college courtyards. You will also be guided through the unspoilt narrow alleys and historic town squares.

Your second stop will be in the Cotswolds. Bursting with history and heritage, the Cotwsolds are a charming blend of breathtaking natural history, bustling market towns and sleepy villages.

Your final stop will be in Stratford-Upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. It is a market town with a difference. Here you will visit the birthplace of Shakespeare, arguably the world’s greatest writer. You will also have the pleasure of visiting Anne Hathaway’s cottage. Anne Hathaway was the wife of Shakespeare.

In Stratford-Upon-Avon, you will be treated to a traditional Christmas lunch. This attractive market town is quite possibly the perfect setting in which to tuck into a festive meal with all of the trimmings.
