A full day tour from London to Oxford and Cambridge, the most famous university towns in England. Includes entrance to Christ Church in Oxford and King's College Chapel in Cambridge.
Free WiFi on Tour Coaches
We begin our day travelling across the Chiltern Hills to Oxford, the 'City of Dreaming Spires,' whose hushed courtyards have inspired generations of scholars including Bill Clinton and writers, Lewis Carroll who wrote 'Alice in Wonderland', C.S. Lewis who wrote 'Chronicles of Narnia' and the immortal J.R.R. Tolkien, author of 'Lord of the Rings'. On the walking tour you'll visit Christ Church and the dining hall that was the inspiration behind the Harry Potter movie set, see the Bodleian Library and the picture-perfect college courtyards for which Oxford is justifiably famous.
Cambridge is a wonderful mixture of the everyday and the extraordinary, a living city that has shaped history and today reflects the best of historic and contemporary life. It was the inspiration for Charles Darwin, Isaac Newton and many of the Monty Python gang. We will have a guided tour of the magnificent chapel of Kings College, founded in 1441, and a fascinating walking tour of a city filled with beautiful buildings and historical quirks, including the famous 'Bridge of Sighs'.
