Cotswolds Tour: 2010
Day trips (or longer) with driver/guide always available from London.* (see client comments)
Quintessential England! Country lanes, gently flowing rivers, castles and cottages of golden stone, elegant Georgian mansions - everything you ever dreamed about England is captured in the Cotswolds.
Just one hour's drive west of London you enter a different world. This area is mainly agricultural and its wealth grew from the medieval wool trade. Here you will find the intriguingly named towns of Chipping Campden, Upper and Lower Slaughter, Shipton under Wychwood and Moreton-in-the-Marsh. The Cotswolds are home to many fine antique stores while traditional crafts, fairs, markets and specialist shops make for a memorable visit.
The Cotswolds are an ideal base from which you can reach the ancient university town of Oxford, the finely preserved castle at Warwick and the birthplace of Shakespeare at Stratford-upon-Avon, all within an easy day's drive. There are some wonderful English gardens to visit in the Cotswolds too. Our local guide will accompany you each day in a comfortable vehicle to explore the beauty, history and traditions - and recommend the best places for afternoon tea!
Your Accommodations: Choices range from Country House Hotels to 3 or 4 star small hotels/bed & breakfasts selected in charming historic locations where you will find a warm welcome in the best Cotswold tradition.
