Visit the magnificent medieval Warwick Castle, most of whose amazing towers and ramparts are still intact. Warwick Castle will take you back through its 1,000 year history as you enter over the footbridge to a bygone world of banquets, battles and ceremony.
From 16th November to 3rd January the stunning grounds of Warwick Castle and its opulent interior décor will be sprinkled with yuletide trimmings adhering to Daisy, Countess of Warwick's, Victorian traditions. The centre-piece of the transformation will be a 25ft Christmas tree, bedecked with an array of beautiful Victorian ornaments, which will be located in the Castle's magnificent Great Hall. The stunning display will continue throughout the Castle's sumptuous State Rooms giving guests the opportunity to step back in time and experience Daisy's very Victorian Christmas rituals…see an ornate red-varnished sleigh brimming with festive trinkets, once used by Daisy to ferry gifts from the Castle to children living in the town of Warwick…and look out for the baby elephant that Daisy gifted to her own very lucky children one Christmas morning!
We then travel through the rolling Warwickshire hills to Stratford upon Avon, a market town at the edge of the Forest of Arden made famous for being the birthplace of the world-famous playwright William Shakespeare.
The colleges in Oxford date back to the 13th century and among its famous students were Bill Clinton, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and Lewis Carroll. We take you on a fascinating walking tour through the cobbled streets of Oxford to see the Bodleian Library and the picture-perfect college courtyards, for which Oxford is famous.
Steeped in history and heritage, the area of England known as the Cotswolds is a charming blend of cottages with honey-coloured walls and thatched roofs, market towns with crooked half-timbered houses lining the High Street, and ancient stone crosses, all set in the gently rolling hills ('wolds') that are so typically English in character.
