Shakespeare, Warwick Castle & The Cotswolds


If you enjoy history, literature, or medieval England, our Shakespeare and Warwick Castle day tour is perfect for you and your family. To make the most of your time and avoid the crowds, our driver guide will customize the tour to your preferences and if desired, we can also visit the peaceful Cotswolds.

Stratford-upon-Avon is a must-see for anyone visiting England, as it is the birthplace of the renowned playwright, William Shakespeare. Our comprehensive walking tour will take you from his birthplace to his school, family homes, places of inspiration, the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, and his grave in a charming church along the River Avon.

During the tour, we can make stops for tea or allow families to visit the famous Magic Alley. For those seeking adventure, one of our favorite activities in Stratford is renting rowing boats and exploring the majestic River Avon, rowing all the way to Shakespeare’s church. Additionally, there are other Shakespeare-related sites we can visit, such as Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and Mary Arden’s Farm.

Before visiting Warwick Castle, we will stop in the historic town of Warwick for a lunch break. Warwick Castle may be busy, but for families and those interested in medieval history, it is one of the finest examples of what a castle used to be. Explore a thousand years of history, climb the castle walls, and enjoy live demonstrations and talks that bring its past to life. For an extra thrill, venture into the dungeons to experience the darker side of the castle’s history, with live actors and special effects telling gruesome tales.

To end the day, we will take a scenic route back to the Cotswolds, passing through picturesque villages like Ebrington and Blockley. Alternatively, we can finish with a garden visit to Kiftsgate Gardens or an afternoon tea in Chipping Campden or Broadway.

Great Tour and Unforgettable Guide!

My brother and I grew up on our parent’s farm in rural Alabama, so when he, my mother, and the rest of the family came to visit me in a London, they wanted to see the British countryside. We couldn’t have picked a better guide for this than Robin Dale. Robin’s deep knowledge of the Cotswolds and adaptability made the tour one of the best parts of our trip. Josh, USA.
