Designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Cotswolds encompasses many picturesque villages with the counties of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and a few others. As you are driven through one of England’s most beautiful gardens, you’ll be treated to unmissable views of medieval villages and bustling market towns (including the lovely Burford and Stow-on-the-Wold), rolling hills and the breath taking countryside.
There will also be a swift one-hour long stop in the charming Bourton-on-the-Water, known as the Venice of the Cotswolds. Voted many a time as one of the prettiest villages in England. It’s safe to say you’ll want your camera’s at the ready for this stop!
The birthplace and ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill is a striking country house worthy of a fairy-tale located in the Oxfordshire countryside. A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, Blenheim Palace was built in an English Baroque style back in the 18th century. For around two hours you will have the chance to discover the palace’s sumptuous State Rooms, stroll through the lovely gardens designed by renowned landscape architect Capability Brown and grab a photo opportunity at Blenheim Lake – home to what was once described as the ‘finest view of England” by Lord Randolph Churchill (father of Winston.)
Your stop in the quaint University City of Oxford wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the University Church of St Mary the Virgin. Standing in the centre of Oxford, this vibrant church boasts a unique baroque design that dates back to the 13th century!
The tour will stop at Oxford for just over an hour, giving you time to enjoy the city’s lively atmosphere.
