Overview

I like this place and could willingly waste my time in it so wrote William Shakespeare in As You Like It. Explore Shakespeares Stratford, including visits to his Birthplace and School, and hear how young William grew to become arguably the worlds greatest writer. There is so much more than just the Bard to discover on this 6-day tour, however: explore the picturesque Cotswolds and the tranquil Hidcote Manor Garden, visit world-famous Warwick Castle and immerse yourself in the medieval streets of scholarly Oxford.
