Itinerary

Day 1

Join your comfortable coach this morning and head for Henley on Thames. Here, we are joined by a guide who will escort us on an excursion through the beautiful little towns, villages and rolling hills of Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire as featured in ‘Midsomer Murders’. Die-hard fans will love being there for real, and people who have never seen the programme will enjoy the stunning countryside, villages and towns that we travel through.

Late afternoon we will head for your comfortable overnight hotel in Reading, which is ideally located in the town centre. Either simply relax at the hotel or your central location allows you to stay out as late as you like making the most of all the town has to offer including great food and drink.

Day 2

After a filling breakfast, leave your comfortable hotel this morning and head to Windsor to join our boat for a 40 minute cruise. Afterwards, enjoy time to shop, sightsee and have something to eat in this wonderful royal town. Rejoin your coach later this afternoon and relax as you head homewards.

Midsomer Murders guided coach tour

Explore the stunning scenery and villages of Midsomer and discover the stories and locations behind the show.  Iconic locations, breathtaking views and facts for the fans, this is a truly wonderful experience! DCI Tom Barnaby (John Nettles) and more recently his cousin DCI John Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon) have been involved in over 120 cases and solved perhaps 300 murders in the 25 years of the show. Many towns and villages in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire and the surrounding countryside have been used for filming and you can see many places where a scene (or a character) has been shot!

And if you arent a Midsomer fan, just sit back and enjoy the stunning scenery and pretty villages!

Windsor 40-minute round trip cruise on the Thames

This short cruise goes upstream to Boveney Lock & returns with fantastic views of Windsor Castle, Eton College, Mill House, Windsor Racecourse & the Brocas Meadows. The view of the Castle from the river is undoubtedly the finest there is, making this trip excellent for those who are visiting Windsor for the first time or repeat visitors who just want more of the same.
