William Shakespeare was born in Stratford Upon Avon in 1564 and the house he was born in is still standing and open to visitors. Your guide will take you through the house and tell you all about William, his family and the history of the house. From here your guide will take you along the same streets William walked on on his way to school and you can see other houses that the Shakespeare family owned and the church where William is buried. Then it's of to see the stunning country thatch cottage and gardens where his wife Anne Hathaway lived.
There are many places on this tour to stop for lunch either in Stratford Upon Avon or in the Cotswold village of Woodstock on route to Blenheim Palace.
Blenheim Palace is a monumental country house in the Cotswold village of Woodstock. It is the principal residence of the Dukes of Marlborough, and the only non-royal, country house in England to hold the title of palace. The palace, one of England's largest houses, was built between 1705 and 1722, and designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. It is also the birthplace of our war time Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill. On a tour through the palace you will see the opulent state rooms and some wonderful furnishings, tapestries and and architecture.
The grounds at Blenheim are also a must see. Especially the Churchill timeline walk and the rose garden.
