Overview
Delve into the rich cultural tapestry of England on a fulfilling full-day trip to Blenheim Palace and the Cotswolds from London. With an accomplished guide, explore the opulent chambers of Blenheim Palace, a Baroque manor house that boasts UNESCO World Heritage status, and discover the building's historical heritage. Travel to the Cotswolds to absorb the splendor of an area replete with charming churches and gorgeous natural panoramas, and then conclude in Bampton, a quaint village featured in hit TV show ‘Downton Abbey’.
What to Expect
Greet your guide at your centrally located meeting point and climb aboard a luxury coach destined for Oxfordshire, home to the UNESCO-listed Blenheim Palace. Absorb gorgeous vistas of the English countryside on the 1.5-hour journey and listen as your guide sets the historical scene of the birthplace of Winston Churchill. 

On arrival, purchase an entrance ticket and embark on a guided tour of the regal residence; listen to illuminating commentary through state-of-the-art headphones as you explore lavish State Rooms, see priceless pieces of art and stroll through the beautiful landscaped gardens. 

After thorough exploration, return to your coach and travel to the Cotswolds, a quintessentially English region with an abundance of natural beauty. Delight in charming parishes and thatched villages during a brief interlude in Bilbury, home to a set of 14th century cottages known as Arlington Row. 

Next, head to a place declared the ‘Little Venice’ of the area and capture fantastic photographs of tranquil lanes parallel to sparkling waterways. Revitalize with a traditional lunch in Bourton-on-the-Water (own expense) and then clamber back aboard the coach for the last stop on your tour. 

Recognize the quintessential charm of Bampton as you tour the village featured in popular English TV show, Downtown Abbey, and allow your attention to be directed to an array of sites featured in the program. 

Relax during the return journey to London, where the tour concludes.

The higher fare includes admission to Blenheim Palace. If you purchase the coach seat only, they will sell you an admission ticket on the bus anyway. Not sure how much that costs but admission to the palace is 27 pounds... More
