During this 10-hour private guided tour of Warwick & Stratford, you will have the opportunity to discover both the birthplace of William Shakespeare (Stratford) and the UK's most well-preserved Medieval Castle (Warwick).
Our professional driver and our Blue Badge guide will both pick you up at your hotel (or apartment) to drive you first to Warwick (1h30 to 2h drive). Located around 20km South of Birmingham, Warwick Castle’s history stretches back almost 1,100 years to an early hill top fortification. The first castle was constructed in 1068 by William the Conqueror after the Norman invasion, Warwick quickly became a mighty stronghold that developed into one the most recognisable and striking fortifications in the land. Over the ages, passing through the ownership by different individuals, families and Monarchs, Warwick Castle underwent a constant change of development - stone replaced wood, Towers and a Gatehouse were added, the grounds were landscaped. Today it is the epitome of a medieval fortress and, with waxworks, archery displays and a castle dungeon, it is great fun for kids.
After this amazing visit, you will have a lunch in one of the local restaurants (not included) and then our Blue Badge guide will bring you to Stratford-Upon-Avon (around 20 min drive).
Located on the North of the beautiful Cotswolds, Stratford-Upon-Avon is the birthplace of William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616), nicknamed "the Great Bard", the world famous English Playwright and Poet who lived there during the Elizabethan era. Our Blue Badge will explain you where and how Shakespeare was living in Stratford and what happened when he finally moved to London to start his theater career. Indeed Stratford contains the home where Shakespeare was born, the cottage where Anne Hathaway resided before their marriage and the church where the couple is buried. For families, our guide might include a last stop at the Butterfly Giant Farm to entertain your children.
We will then drive you back to London and drop you off at your hotel or apartment.
