Activity near Heathrow Airport

We always spend our last near the A/P so as not to miss our flight back to the states. Where/What is a one day excursion that is not far from Heathrow. We prefer natural beauty. We do not prefer theme activities, unless they are extremely educational or beautiful. Thanks for your help. We will be there July 8th

WIndsor is the obvious choice, a short bus or taxi ride away from Heathrow airport. Castle, nice small town, Eton College, walk down by the Thames or through Windsor great park for some countryside.

Alternatively, there are other small towns along the Thames Valley, such as Henley and Marlow that are very pleasant, less touristy and atraction-y, a little further away but still accessable by bus and train within a day.

If you have a full day, Oxford is another option - can be educational, although not particularly natural... regular coaches from Heathrow.
