We will depart from our pick-up point early in the morning and head towards the historical city of Oxford, in central southern England, revolves around its prestigious university, established in the 12th century. The architecture of its 38 colleges in the city's medieval centre led poet Matthew Arnold to nickname it the 'City of Dreaming Spires'. University College and Magdalen College are off the High Street, here enjoy free time before heading back to London.
Later we drive to countryside of Cotswold. Our first stop will be charming village of Bibury, a wonderfully attractive setting along the River Coln and a backdrop for blockbuster films including Stardust and Bridget Jones's Diary. Take a stroll along the wonderful cottages of Arlington Row, the quaint group of weaver's cottages dating back to the 16th Century. Visit to the Trout Farm is recommended especially if you have children, they can enjoy feeding the trout while you enjoy the tea and cake in the terrace café.
Then it's on to Bourton-on-the-Water, otherwise known as the 'Venice of Cotswold' and regularly voted one of the prettiest villages in England with its gorgeous bridges that cross the gently flowing River Windrush. Visit to the Model Village is a must and if you are a car enthusiast then visit to the Motoring Museum is well worth it.
Later we arrive to the beautiful town of Burford, often referred to as the 'Gateway to the Cotswold', with its old worldly charm, quaint shops and a selection of coffee shops, pubs and restaurants. The church of St James is worth a visit as well with its wealth of history. Burford's vibrant high street has its own very individual character and make sure you explore down the alleyways and side streets where you will find shops and eateries everywhere.
