Dramatic Stratford-upon-Avon

With a choice of two great hotels, our Stratford tour features Shakespeare’s Birthplace attractions, a boat cruise, Warwick Castle, Hidcote Manor Garden and the Cotswold market town of Chipping Campden – plenty for your groups to write home about!
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Stratford-upon-Avon
We spend today in the bustling market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, exploring the birthplace and beloved home town of William Shakespeare. We visit Shakespeare’s family homes, including Hall’s Croft, Nash’s House & New Place and Harvard House before enjoying a relaxing 45 minute river cruise with an engaging guide who will bring Stratford’s remarkable history to life.

Day 3 Warwick Castle
Today, we spend time at leisure at magnificent Warwick Castle. With more than 1,000 years of jaw-dropping history the castle’s attractions include a maze, a Time Tower and the Mighty Trebuchet – the largest working siege machine in the world – this colossal catapult is an authentic recreation of one of the biggest and most deadly military machines of all time. Behind the castle’s mighty walls, the real heart of the castle can be found in its beautiful grand interiors.

Day 4 Hidcote Manor Garden & Chipping Campden
This morning, we visit Hidcote Manor Garden, famous for its rare trees and shrubs, herbaceous borders and unusual plants from all over the world. In the afternoon we visit the nearby Cotswold market town of Chipping Campden.

Day 5 Departure
We make our way home today, perhaps via Charlecote Park.
