London – Oxford – The Cotswolds – Bampton – Burford – Bibury – London
Get out of the city for a day with a day trip from London to the North West. On our way to Oxford and The Cotswolds, we’ll pass by Pinewood Film Studios – the home of James Bond – and through the Chiltern Hills.
Enjoy a scenic trip through classic English countrysides that inspired television shows such as Midsomer Murders and Vicar of Dibley, before arriving in Oxford, home of the oldest English-speaking university in the world. It was here that literary giants JRR Tolkein and CS Lewis wrote Lord of the Rings and Alice in Wonderland. Wander through the halls and grounds of Oxford’s historic colleges; climb one of the vantage points to take in the skyline view of the City of Dreaming Spires; or view the wealth of art and antiquities in the Ashmolean Museum (admission not included).
In the afternoon we’ll discover the beautiful villages of the Cotswolds, home to ironstone cottages that have remained unchanged for centuries. First up we’ll visit Bampton, where you will encounter the magnificent parish church of St Mary, site of many iconic scenes from Downton Abbey.
Next up we’ll stop in Burford, considered the Gateway to the Cotswolds, exploring this small market town that holds an enormous character and a huge history. Stroll down main street past its quintessential ironstone cottages, the essence of the Cotswold, and discover the local charm and hospitality.
Last but not least, we’ll visit Bibury, a lovely little village beloved by William Morris and Henry Ford alike. Walk down Arlington Row with us. You might remember this location from the films Stardust and Bridget Jones Diary.
From here we’ll return on a comfortable and scenic return journey, arriving in London around 7:00pm.
