The beautiful university city of Oxford, the surrounding rolling countryside and picturesque towns and villages have been used in the filming of some of our most popular TV series. As well as exploring the highlights of Oxford, we visit some of the charming locations that have played a key role in both Inspector Morse and Midsomer Murders, and also enjoy a scenic cruise along the River Thames, one of England’s most famous waterways.

Coach Itinerary

Reading Breaks And Midsomer Murders Tour

Oxford (full day)
We head to Oxford, known as the city of Dreaming Spires. Famous for its university colleges and magnificent architecture, the city’s charming scenery has been caught on camera numerous times, including the popular Inspector Morse TV series. The city also has plenty of shopping opportunities as well as quaint cafés, museums and tearooms. There’s the chance to join an optional guided walking tour (£10pp) to see Oxford’s highlights and Inspector Morse filming locations.

MidsomerMurders Locations Tour (full day)
On this full day guided tour we pass through some of the prettiest villages in England that make up the area of Midsomer. These include Wallingford (the original Causton), Dorchester-on-Thames (one of the most used Midsomer locations where there will be time to visit the abbey and for optional morning coffee), Watlington and Thame (where we will walk around some of the many locations). Next we pass through more Midsomer villages such as Long Crendon, Haddenham, Chinnor and Marlow before arriving at Henley-on-Thames where there will be another short walk (Midsomer and Inspector Morse locations) before free time for lunch (not included).

After lunch, we follow one of the most beautiful sections of the Thames as we make for Beaconsfield, home to the Midsomer police station (as well Downton Abbey and James Bond locations). The final stop is at Littlewick Green where it is not advised to play in the local cricket team.

Westminster to Kew River Cruise & London (full day)
This morning we head into London for some time in the capital before embarking on a scenic cruise from Westminster to Kew Gardens. Sit back and relax as you enjoy the many sights and landmarks along our route, including the Royal Hospital Chelsea, designed by Sir Christopher Wren and home to the Chelsea pensioners; Battersea Power Station and Lambeth Palace, the London residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury since the 13th century. Our cruise finishes in the beautiful, world-famous Kew Gardens, ‘the most biodiverse place on Earth.’
