Description

Leave the city smog behind and breathe easy in the calm British countryside. A comfy coach will spirit you across verdant rolling hills and bucolic landscapes on an excursion into the heartland of Britain. Visit Blenheim Palace, one of the largest stately homes in the UK and the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Meander around quaint villages, see majestic architecture and many well-known landmarks from the popular TV series Downton Abbey.

Explore the state rooms of Blenheim Palace, furnished with some of the most impressive private collections of paintings in Europe. Take a stroll through the landscaped gardens and admire the beauty of the Rose Garden and the Water Terraces.

Visit the charming village of Bibury, whose picturesque setting along the River Coln has been the backdrop for blockbuster films including Stardust and Bridget Jones's Diary. Admire Arlington Row, the quaint group of weaver's cottages dating back to the 16th Century.

Then it's on to Bourton-on-the-Water, regularly voted one of the prettiest villages in England. The stone bridges that stretch across the gently flowing River Windrush make it hard to top.

Wander around the village of Bampton, the location of many landmarks featured in the hit TV series Downton Abbey. You'll see the buildings that played the part of Isobel Crawley's home, plus the Downton Cottage Hospital, the church, and also the location for two fictional local pubs: The Grantham Arms and The Dog & Duck.
