What to expect

Please be aware of government guidelines before setting off.

Government Guidelines
  • Immerse yourself in Old World England with a guided tour around some of the country’s most historic and beloved sights.
  • Explore the grandeur of Warwick Castle, visit Shakespeare’s birthplace at Stratford-upon-Avon, pass through the scenic Cotswolds and take a walking tour through the charming city of Oxford, all led by an expert guide.
  • Escape the city with round-trip transportation from London Victoria in a panoramic coach, driving you through the picturesque English countryside for a full day of adventure.


Hop aboard a premium Evan Evans bus and enjoy an ultimate coach trip from London that lets you see all of the country’s top historic sights in one wonderful day. 

You’ll begin your tour at one of the most famous castles in England, dating all the way back to 1068. Warwick’s medieval castle transports visitors back to the times of knights and banquets within its huge towers, stately rooms and 64 acres of exquisite gardens in this historic town on the River Avon. Next you can explore the quaint Stratford-upon-Avon, which was the birthplace of the world’s most famous playwright, William Shakespeare. Your tour will take you into the Shakespeare’s Birthplace museum, where you’ll see rare artefacts from the treasured wordsmith and learn his fascinating history from expert, costumed guides. On the way to your next venture you’ll take a driving tour of the Cotswolds, a range of picturesque rolling hills in southwest England's countryside. Finally, your jam-packed journey will conclude with an Oxford walking tour where you’ll get to see all of the top sights in this popular cobbled city including Harry Potter filming locations, peaceful canals and the stunning Gothic architecture of England’s oldest university, the University of Oxford, founded in 1096. Then just sit back and relax as you’re driven back to London in style after a long day!
