Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon and the Cotswolds from London
From US$107.37
Lose yourself in England’s storybook villages as you tour the picturesque Cotswolds and the medieval town of Stratford-upon-Avon on this full-day tour from London. Walk in the footsteps of England’s most iconic playwright as you tour Shakespeare’s birthplace and Anne Hathaway’s Cottage in Stratford-upon-Avon. After tucking into a packed lunch (included), marvel at the traditional English villages, rolling hills and thatched-roof cottages of the Cotswolds, as you visit Bibury, Burford and Bourton-on-the-water.
What to Expect
Make your own way to the tour starting point in Victoria, central London, to meet your guide and group. Hop aboard a climate-controlled vehicle and journey from the city into the English countryside.
Begin with a visit to Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of Shakespeare, roughly two hours away. Explore the medieval market town and the half-timbered house where the legendary bard was born. Learn about Shakespeare's family from a fascinating collection of artifacts and experience how his extraordinary work is still relevant today.
Shakespeare’s Schoolroom. See where the iconic English writer spent his school years in this fascinating trip to Shakespeare’s Schoolroom. Explore where it all started for the playwright, before he moved to London to bring his plays to the stage.
Continue to Anne Hathaway’s Cottage & Gardens. See this historical English home — a thatched farmhouse containing original Tudor furniture — where Shakespeare courted his former bride. Meander the cottage’s gardens and grounds overflowing with fragrant blooms and traditional shrubs.
Complementary lunch pack included. Sit down to a box lunch aboard your vehicle and gaze out at the rolling hills and storybook villages as you ride through the Cotswolds, a designated "Area of Natural Beauty."
Stop for photo opportunities in three of the region's prettiest villages, including Bibury and Bourton-on-the-Water, often described as the “Little Venice.”
After a day of sightseeing, arrive back in London at roughly 6:30pm. Your tour then concludes with a drop-off at the original start point.

Not worth the money

The first half of the tour and seeing the Cotswolds was wonderful, our bus driver was also great, however our guide 'Dolly' clearly did not want to be on the tour for the day and was quite blunt and unhelpful. Once we arrived at Bourton...More

At each spot, you will have to walk from parking lot to the village or museum. I think it would be around 200-300 meters each site. And some museums you will need to take stairs, I am not sure if they have the lift. I hope... More
