Famed for its prestigious university, the city boasts several fascinating attractions and is defined by the honey-coloured hue of its spectacular architecture. On the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the university’s main research library, the Bodleian, as well as Christ Church College and Radcliffe Camera.
On Day Three of your holiday, we’ll travel to the heart of the English countryside to visit the beautiful Cotswolds.

As well as discovering the Cotswolds’ unique heritage and breathtaking natural landscapes, we’ll stop for a hearty lunch in a cafe that overlooks the water in Bourton on the Water, and also visit a quirky Motor Museum in the village. Then there’s time to take a look around the village and pick up some souvenirs before we head back to the hotel for the evening meal.
Today, we’ll visit Blenheim Palace, a World Heritage Site and the only non-royal, non-religious building in England to hold the title of ‘palace.’ This exquisite example of English Baroque architecture is the seat of the Duke of Marlborough and receives thousands of visitors every year. Featuring regularly updated exhibitions that cover a wide range of topics, including ‘The History of Churchill’ and ‘The Stables at Blenheim,’ this is a wonderful opportunity to explore one of the country’s most intriguing stately houses.
After we tour Blenheim Palace and its grounds, we’ll head over to the estate’s stunning Orangery Restaurant for a regal afternoon tea. With finger sandwiches, indulgent cakes and classic scones and clotted cream, it’s an afternoon feast that’s sure to leave you satisfied! To top the day off, we’ll take a walk around the palace’s delightful gardens, then head back to Oxford for the evening.
Today, your accessible Heart of England Tour comes to an end. After a hearty breakfast, our accessible coach will depart the hotel for our various UK drop-off locations.
