This fascinating holiday showcases fine scenery and some of our most beloved historical treasures. Enjoy a day in Shakespeare-land where you could perhaps explore the five dedicated houses dotted around the picturesque market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, visit the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, admire the Tudor architecture or take a cruise on the river. Look forward to spending a day at breathtaking Warwick Castle, a spectacular fortress with towers, turrets and a dark dungeon room. Finally, we discover the beauty of the Cotswolds including Broadway, a chocolate box village often referred to as the “Jewel of the Cotswolds”.
Admire the half-timbered Tudor architecture, take a river cruise, stroll along the banks of the Avon or perhaps visit the Shakespeare related attractions like the Royal Shakespeare and Swan Theatres, the Holy Trinity Church where the playwright was buried and Anne Hathaway’s Cottage.
We enjoy a day in ancient Worcester where the skyline is dominated by the tower of the beautiful cathedral that houses royal tombs, medieval cloisters and an ancient crypt. Perhaps visit the fascinating thirteenth century Commandery or head to enchanting half-timbered Friar Street to browse the unique boutiques and explore the Tudor house.
Villages of the Cotswolds
We discover these picture postcard villages including Stow-on-the-Wold with its vast market square, fifteenth century penal stocks and charming promenade of shops and cottages. Nicknamed the “Little Venice of the Cotswolds”, Bourton-on-the-Water straddles the River Windrush with a procession of ornate bridges and stone embankments while beautiful Broadway is the Cotswolds best kept secret.
