The tour heads northwest out of London, passing close to the Pinewood Film Studios and through the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The picturesque countryside here has inspired the television shows Midsomer Murders and Vicar of Dibley.
- Oxford University Precincts: We arrive in the Oxford ‘City of Dreaming Spires’, home to the oldest English-speaking university in the world and over 1500 listed buildings. It is here that JRR Tolkein wrote Lord of the Rings and CS Lewis wrote Alice in Wonderland. You have time to explore the precincts of the colleges, stroll through the town, or view the famous Great Hall of Christ Church College, featured in the films ‘The Golden Compass’, ‘Brideshead Revisited’, and Harry Potter.
- Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Beauty: The afternoon is spent in the charming Cotswolds.
Minster Lovell Hall: Ruins of a 15th-century Oxfordshire manor house look pretty-as-a-picture sitting alongside a flowing river and stately trees.
Burford, the ‘Gateway to the Cotswolds’, with it’s charming ironstone cottages and narrow lanes; you’ll have time to take in some tea (not included in tour).
Bibury, described by artist William Morris as ‘the prettiest village in England’. We’ll take a stroll through the village, including the famous Arlington Row, with its dollhouse-like weavers’ cottages dating back to 1380, before heading back to London.
