Close by is Chipping Norton and the Rollright Stones from the Bronze Age.

Day Tour 2 - Bath and Stonehenge

The lovely city of Bath was made famous in Roman times for its healing water and was restored in the 18th century, when it became the fashionable “place to be”. This Georgian town is also home to the Jane Austen Museum, the Royal Crescent, and the charming Pulteney Bridge.

Day Tour 3 - Oxford, Blenheim Palace and Stratford-upon-Avon

10 Hours

Oxford is home to England’s oldest university and really does live up to its image of ‘Dreaming Spires’ and lovely cloistered college grounds as well as being home to academic treasures such as the Ashmolean Library.

Nearby is Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill. Drive through the lovely Cotswold  countryside to historic Stratford. Tread in William Shakespeare’s footsteps. Visit his birthplace, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, Holy Trinity Church (where they are both buried) and the Memorial Theatre. A long day but definitely worth it!
