Tour Highlights

  • Full day in the Cotswolds – Burford, Bourton on the Water and Broadway
  • Entry to Blenheim Palace Gardens, birthplace of Winston Churchill

Cotswolds
This beautiful area of rolling hills, wooded valleys and unspoilt villages of honey-coloured stone and thatched cottages. First we visit Burford deep within the Cotswolds. Here we have time to see its quaint old church, wander through the picturesque village and stop to visit one of the many tea-rooms. On leaving Burford we drive through some of the Cotswold’s prettiest villages before arriving at Bourton on the Water.

Bourton on the Water has a small stream running alongside the attractive main street. If you are lucky you might see one of the parrots that live in the village. Next, we move on to Broadway. This slightly bigger village has a number of interesting shops that can be browsed and a selection of old English Pubs where delicious lunches can be purchased.

Blenheim Gardens
During the afternoon we continue through the wonderful English countryside until we arrive at Woodstock where we will see the Gardens of Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill. The gardens and grounds were laid out by the famous Capability Brown in classic English Style.
