Your Sightseeing Excursions

Marvellous Morse Country
Enjoy a full day in Oxford, the world-famous seat of learning, city of history, heritage and culture. During the day we have included a guided walking tour of old and new as our expert leads us through the history of the colleges and the more modern haunts of TV's 'Inspector Morse'.

Charms of the Cotswolds
Into the lush meadows and honey-coloured stone villages of the southern Cotswolds, we arrive at Stow-on-the-Wold, where there is time to explore the ancient market square. Then on to Bourton-on-the-Water, with the little River Windrush flowing beneath tiny humpback bridges, before arriving in Burford, a scenic delight with its pretty Cotswolds buildings and magnificent church. 

Vales & Ancient England
A full day tour into England's ancient lands today as we journey through the delightful Vale of the White Horse before reaching the pretty village of Lechlade-on-Thames. From here we cross into the North Wessex Downs, passing the famous Stone Circles of Avebury, to reach Marlborough with one of the widest high Streets in the country, adorned with fine Gerogian buildings and half-timbered cottages.
