Stratford-upon-Avon is a picturesque town nestled along the River Avon, the birthplace of playwright William Shakespeare.

Step back in time and explore the Tudor houses that line the streets, where Shakespeare once resided, was educated and drew inspiration for his timeless masterpieces. His final resting place is now in the Holy Trinity Church.

His date of birth and death is April 23rd and each year on the nearest weekend there is a celebration of his life and work which is April 20th this year.

The Cotswolds is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in England, known for its quaint villages, rolling hills and spectacular views of nature. It's a haven for those seeking a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life, offering a wealth of activities and attractions to discover.

Bourton-on-the-Water is a picture-perfect village in the Cotswolds, renowned for its charming honey-coloured stone cottages and five picturesque bridges that cross the River Windrush.

*Please note due to the removal of the coach park recently and possible ban on coaches in near future we may have to stop in a different Cotswolds destination of equivalent style.

Entrance tickets to attractions are not included but can be paid for on the day (or in advance online).
