With a history that dates back over 1,000 years, Warwick Castle will take you back in time to a world of sumptuous banquets, bloody battles and royal splendor.

Oxford and the Cotswolds: Oxford, the city of dreaming spires, boasts one of the world's greatest and oldest universities, as well as some of the finest architecture in Europe. The colleges themselves, which make up the university, are amongst the architectural highlights, their ivy-clad stone walls protecting beautiful chapels, halls and libraries. We enjoy a walking tour through the city. On the way to the remarkable city we will also enjoy a short drive through the scenic Cotswolds.
