your experience

Get away from the hustle and bustle of London and head towards the serene expanses of Cotswolds, the first stop on your itinerary. Nestled in the rolling hills is the quaint little village of Bampton, known to be the filming location for the famous television series, Downton Abbey. Fans of this show will enjoy seeing the Downton Cottage Hospital, the home of Isobel Crawley, the village church, and the location for two fictional local pubs, The Dog & Duck and The Grantham Arms!

Make your way through this beautiful countryside and stop at the next destination, the village of Bourton on the Water, otherwise known as the Venice of the Costwolds! Sip on a cup of tea at a riverside café or stroll down the riverbanks as you let the local culture sink in. Finally, head towards the Blenheim Palace, best-known to be the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Take in the tapestry, lavish furniture, and portraits in the State Rooms before heading out to the stunningly-landscaped formal gardens.

Tip: Be sure to stand in the exact spot where Sir Winston Churchill proposed to Clementine Hozier!
