Itinerary

Description

The Cotswolds is a pastoral landscape of gently rolling hills and quintessentially English towns and villages of honey-coloured stone where time seems to have stood still. This charming backdrop is complemented perfectly by the treasures of historic Warwick with its iconic castle and Stratford-upon-Avon, where we uncover the intriguing story of one of England’s greatest playwrights, William Shakespeare.

Itinerary

Day 1
Check in to the Chesford Grange Hotel in the afternoon. Later, we enjoy a welcome drinks reception hosted by our tour manager followed by dinner at the hotel.

Day 2 – Stratford-upon-Avon & River Avon Cruise
We begin the day with a guided walking tour of Stratford-upon-Avon where we delve into the world of William Shakespeare and get a glimpse into his family life away from the stage, as well as admire the many historic buildings of the town.

After our tour, we take to the water for a sightseeing cruise along the River Avon where we can sit back, relax and enjoy the glorious Warwickshire countryside as our guide keeps us entertained with interesting facts about Stratford’s history and Shakespeare.

Later this afternoon, we visit the iconic Royal Shakespeare Company Theatre where we enjoy tea and scones in the Rooftop Restaurant.

Tonight, we enjoy dinner together back at the hotel.

Day 3 – Warwick Castle
This morning we visit Warwick Castle, which has stood as an impressive medieval fortress for the last 1,100 years and remains one of the most well-preserved medieval castles in Britain.


Behind the mighty walls lie grand interiors such as the Great Hall and lavish State Rooms while the atmospheric castle dungeon brings to life some of the darkest and bloodiest times in the castle’s history.

This evening, we head to a local pub or restaurant for a two-course dinner.

Day 4 – Cotswold Villages (Moreton-in-Marsh, Stow-on-the-Wold & Bourton-on-the-Water)
Today we explore some of the Cotswolds’ most beautiful towns and villages. We head first to Moreton-in-Marsh, a traditional Cotswold market town and a former coaching station with elegant 17th and 18th-century inns and houses. We then make our way to the beautiful market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, renowned for its traditional stone buildings and wonderful collection of artisanal boutiques.

After enjoying lunch together in Stow, we continue on to Bourton-on-the-Water where we can admire its low, elegant 18th-century bridges and pretty river banks, browse the independent shops or relax in one of the quaint tea rooms.

Back at the hotel tonight, we enjoy a farewell dinner together.

Day 5
After breakfast, it’s time to check out of the hotel for the journey home.
