After a warm welcome from your Tour Director, settle into your luxury coach and head westwards through the green Chiltern Hills. Stop in Oxford, the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’, home to the world’s most famous university with its colleges dating back to the 13th century. With time at leisure, why not enjoy a visit to the world famous Ashmolean Museum or just browse through the local indoor market, before continuing via pretty Cotswolds villages to Stratford-upon-Avon. Visit the half-timbered house where the bard was born, now a museum full of memorabilia relating to his life. Later, join your Tour Director for a warm and friendly Welcome Reception, with drinks and the opportunity to mingle and get to know each other over a pleasant evening of dinner and wine.
