Description

Discover the English countryside on Christmas Day and savour a traditional Christmas meal in Shakespeare's home town!

Your tour starts in London where a bus will pick you up at your hotel. Once aboard, you'll cross the city and admire the most famous landmarks such as Big Ben, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, among others.

Then head to Oxford where the Christmas party will be in full swing. Stroll down its little cobbled streets while your guide tells you of the city's university traditions and the prestigious students that it has welcomed. Then head to Christ Church College where scenes from Harry Potter were filmed.

Discover the Cotswolds region which has managed to preserve its rural way of life and stop briefly at Blenheim Palace, Sir Winston Churchill's birthplace.

Have lunch in Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare's birth town. You'll be served a traditional Christmas dinner with roast turkey and Christmas pudding. The afternoon will be dedicated to visiting Stratford. Stand outside his birth home and visit Holy Trinity Church where the dramatist is now buried.

Finally, you'll return to London.
