ITINERARY

Morning

Departing in the early morning we take a scenic drive through the Cotswolds, for breathtaking views of open countryside, honey coloured stone cottages, and market towns with magnificent churches. We visit the charming town of Bourton-on-the-Water which straddles the River Windrush with its series of elegant low bridges beside neat tree-shaded greens and tidy stone banks. Bourton-on-the-Water is one of the most popular tourist spots in the region being serviced by many shops, cafes and attractions.

Afternoon

We continue our journey to the charming town of Stratford Upon Avon, the birthplace of the world’s most famous playwright William Shakespeare. We visit his parental home and will have the opportunity to visit other buildings associated with the playwright.

In the afternoon we visit the world famous Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, the childhood home of Shakespeare’s wife. The young Shakespeare would have courted Anne here and the view of the house and garden has been described as the most romantic in England. Anne Hathaway’s Cottage is set in stunning grounds. The quintessential English cottage overflows with beautiful flowers and shrubs.
