Fabulous breakaway combining 2 of the very best of British!
One of England’s favourite destinations, The Cotswolds is a designated ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. Gentle hills criss-crossed with stone walls, hidden river valleys, and distinctive market towns and villages are the hallmark of this wonderful region. During this 2 day break you will see some of the best sights including the delightful Bourton-on-the-Water & Stow-on-the-Wold and Burford.
Oxford, the 'city of dreaming spires' is steeped in a rich and fascinating history. Famous for its prestigious Oxford University, the city is very pedestrian friendly; a bustling cosmopolitan place with a lovely riverside setting and a lively mix of restaurants, bars and superb shopping. The Radcliffe Camera, Bodleian Library and Bridge of Sighs make up just a few of the famous picturesque buildings of Oxford. Its charming scenery has been the inspiration for many, including Lewis Carroll and J.R.R Tolkien. There are also many recognisable scenes from popular films such as Harry Potter and TV series like Inspector Morse.
