A countryside escape

Go on a day trip away from the bustling streets of London into the heart of the Cotswolds. Take a comfortable, air-conditioned coach from central London with an expert guide. As you travel westward, listen to tales of the region's rich history and gaze at the rolling green hills dotted with traditional villages. Your first stop is Burford, a town renowned for its grand high street with honey-colored stone buildings. Take a stroll, browsing quaint shops and perhaps indulging in a quintessential English tea. Next, you'll be transported to Bibury, a village often hailed as the prettiest in England. Time stands still here as you marvel at the picture-perfect 17th-century weavers' cottages.

Explore quant villages

Take a moment to capture this picture-perfect scene before a delicious 2-course lunch at a historic 17th-century inn. The afternoon unfolds with a scenic drive through the Cotswolds, where you might glimpse the iconic Cotswold sheep grazing in the lush pastures. Your guide will unveil hidden gems and share local legends as you journey to Bourton-on-the-Water, nicknamed the "Venice of the Cotswolds" for its quaint bridges spanning the River Windrush. Finally, the tour concludes with a visit to Stow-on-the-Wold, a charming market town boasting a delightful atmosphere and limestone houses. Soak up the local charm before relaxing on the journey back to London.
