Private tour to Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford 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, in fact, 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 – lots of people – who were made by Oxford and helped make its name: Wren, Hawksmoor, Carroll, Tolkein; Alice and Potter!

I’m your driver and private guide and I’ll be explaining as we explore. Walking is integral to this tour. There are plenty 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.
