English Countryside Tour
Full Day Countryside Tour: 9.00am - 4.00pm.
Day Trip starts & ends at your hotel or anywhere in central London.
Graham is your guide and driver throughout the day.
Ancient villages, age-old churches, gorgeous countryside and quaint old pubs.
Beautiful English countryside begins...just outside London. Our tour takes us to the Chiltern Hills, officially designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' (AONB). Only 33 such areas exist in all of England.
The Chilterns are less than a 90 minute drive from central London. The idea behind this tour is that we spend time sightseeing and visiting beautiful countryside locations, NOT driving for hours and hours. This is how your day might go:
Definitely: ancient villages, medieval churches, nice old pubs (for eating & drinking), winding lanes, rolling hills, wooded glades + Film & TV locations (Chitty Chitty, Vicar of Dibley, Midsomer Murders). History too: Domesday Book, Black Death, Reformation and Dissenters.
Maybe: bluebell woodlands (in spring), grazing muntjack deer (they’re very shy), cows, sheep, sun, blue skies, cloud, rain or snow (dress for the weather).
NB: I'm often asked to visit a beautiful area called the Cotswolds. Ask me and I will take you. My English Countryside tour is very nice too. It's the anti-Cotswolds tour. Lovely scenery, genuine history and old villages, closer to London and no tourists.
The English Countryside Tour lasts for 7 hours. Expenses for food and drink are not included.
