Stratford & The Cotswolds
Student / Child:
 Guided day tour from Cambridge 
 'A Picturesque View of England'   
 Visit Shakespeare's birthplace town and the beautiful countryside and villages of rural England.   
 Stratford-upon-Avon is a small, pretty market town on the banks of the River Avon where William Shakespeare grew up and where he spent the final years of his life. With its timber-framed houses overhanging the busy shopping streets a visit to the town is a trip back into old England.   

The Cotswolds is one of the most beautiful regions of southern England: rolling hills, wooded valleys, tranquil streams, fields of sheep and flowers, and, the main reason for its fame and popularity, its wonderful honey-coloured stone villages. This is chocolate-box Britain!
