HOLIDAY HIGHLIGHTS

 

Worcester   |   Cotswolds Tour   |   Stratford-upon-Avon

 

DAY ONE – Arrival

We depart from your home and travel to Worcester with comfort stops en route.

 

DAY TWO – Stratford-upon-Avon

Today we make our way to Shakespeare's Stratford-Upon-Avon, we take a short photo stop at Anne Hathaway's idyllic cottage - Shakespeare's wife, before enjoying a 45-minute cruise along the River and taking in the many sights and hearing some of the history. The remainder of the day will be free to do as you please in this lovely town.

 

DAY THREE – Worcester

Today we have a day at leisure in Worcester, why not explore the beautiful Cathedral which houses royal tombs, a crypt, and cloisters just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel. Or perhaps take a stroll along the river.

 

DAY FOUR – Cotswolds Tour

Today we set off on a wonderful scenic drive into the beautiful Cotswolds countryside. Our first stop is Stow- on- the-Wold, a quintessential English town with mellow Cotswold stone buildings, a fine selection of shops, chic bistros, Cotswold inns and cosy tea shops. Continuing through the countryside we enjoy an extended stop in Bourton-on-the-Water, regularly voted one of the prettiest villages in England, there is a unique appeal with a wealth of attractions and shops.

Our afternoon stop is Burford, with a broad main High Street lined with old houses, cottages and shop fronts which appear to have changed little for hundreds of years. Take time to explore the side streets and snatch glimpses of hidden treasures through intriguing alleyways and courtyards between the 17th and 18th century buildings.
