The Grand Tour

14 Days Easy-Moderate

We created this grand tour of England taking in many of its historic sights, to celebrate the 2012 Olympics. Like the games, the trip has been a resounding success. Starting and finishing in Oxford, it includes the World Heritage sights of Stonehenge, Bath and Blenheim Palace, the iconic River Thames, the well loved towns of Stratford on Avon and Salisbury and the stunning hills and villages of the Cotswolds and Chilterns

From the historic university city of Oxford see Chipping Campden, Bibury, and Tetbury as you ride through the Cotswold valleys. Stay overnight in Stratford on Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare and if you wish enjoy one of his plays at the theatre. Absorb the Roman influence in Cirencester, the film backdrop of Lacock and the engineering feat of the Kennet and Avon Canal. Take in the outstanding cathedral in Salisbury, the soaring downs of middle England, the Thames with its pretty waterside villages and the undersung Chiltern Hills with their beech woods. This trip is our longest and embraces everything that is England
