Stop At: Warwick Castle, Castle Lane, Warwick CV34 4QU England

Over a thousand years of history are waiting to be discovered at this fantastic medieval castle. Set against the River Avon within 64 acres of landscaped parkland, this beautiful castle once belonged to the most powerful man in England, The Earl of Warwick.

Learn how the 'Kingmaker' was the only man who dared defy the King, and how he defeated the armies of King Edward IV in battle before taking the King himself as a prisoner. Explore the lavishly decorated State Rooms and 17th-century Great Hall; a room boasting an impressive collection of artefacts including suits of armour and medieval weapons.

In the castle's 14th-century gaol, the original dungeon, see graffiti left behind by prisoners hundreds of years ago. How many names can you spot?

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Shakespeare's Birthplace, Henley Street, Stratford-upon-Avon CV37 6QW England

This ancient market town is perhaps most famous for being the birthplace of William Shakespeare, widely regarded to be the greatest writer in English literature and the world's greatest ever dramatist.

Enjoy a fascinating insight into tales of his family life and admire rare artefacts on displays from the Shakespeare Trust's world-class collections.

In Christ Church college, you will be visiting one of the University's most prestigious colleges. Founded by Henry VIII in 1532, Christ Church also functions as the UK's smallest cathedral.

Its beautiful architecture has seen it featured in movies such as Harry Potter and The Golden Compass, while it has also inspired replicas around the world. The famous dining hall, for example, has been reproduced in Cornell University & the University of Chicago. The dining hall in all Harry Potter movies is modelled on the Christchurch dining hall!

We have traveled the world and our opinion is that Rowan is the best tour guide that we have ever had. She was informative, entertaining, and we wish that every tour guide could only be as good as she was. She provided helpful information regarding London, including upcoming tube closures, helpful app information, she definitely went the extra mile. The tour was well done, excellent narration, the stops were very good and we only wish every tour we have taken would have been as good.

We had a wonderful experience with Patrica and driver to see all the sites in a comfortable bus. The length of time was perfect and informative details shared about sites. Oxford was the highlight. Beautiful architecture in this college city. A bit of a rainy day and the bus was right there to pick us up, warmed up ready for next stop.
