Private tour to Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford (or Kenilworth Castle) from London

I’m a London born and bred tour guide and I do love my city. But I love my English scenery and history too. I enjoy providing commentary and historic anecdotes about all my tour destinations. On this day trip out of London we’re going to visit two unforgettable, very famous English cities.

Stratford-upon-Avon: is all about William Shakespeare. His birthplace, home base and burial space are all on my walking tour. This small, very pleasant ancient market town is full of Shakespeare related sights encompassing his entire life and family. We’ll stroll over the River Avon and through the old centre discovering the Shakespeare presence as we explore.

The Cotswolds is on our route to Oxford. We’ll drive across the edge of one of England’s famous rural areas, taking in some lovely scenery as we travel.

Oxford: is the ‘city of dreaming spires’, medieval colleges and many magnificent old buildings. My guided walk encompasses the colleges, history, architecture and people who were made by Oxford and helped make its name: Wren, Hawksmoor, Carroll, Tolkien; Alice and Potter!

An alternative to Oxford is Kenilworth Castle:

Kenilworth Castle: is a superb, huge ruin dating back to the 12th century and not far from Stratford. The castle expanded into a royal palace until its destruction in the 1600s. From then it was reduced to a farm before becoming an inspiration to the 19th century romantics. Kenilworth is what an English castle is meant to look like! Kenilworth is a paid attraction – tickets are extra.

I’m your driver and private guide and I’ll be explaining as we explore. Walking is integral to this tour. There are lots of stops for photo opps. I’ll talk as we walk and when we’re up close. Time spent viewing a location varies from one or two minutes to a few minutes.

We’re always close to coffee shops and places for bathroom breaks and our lunch location can be decided as we tour.

Having a driver/walking guide like me conducting your tour in a London taxi is super-efficient and will help to make the day enjoyable and memorable.

This tour as a whole or partially can be customized to fit your preferences – please inquire. Some people like to spend the whole day in Stratford and also visit Mary Arden’s farm and Anne Hathaway’s cottage (both paid entry).
