OXFORD & BLENHEIM PALACE (9 hrs)

A day of visual riches awaits with this heady combination.

Your guide will collect you from your central London hotel for your private guided tour and together you will visit;

OXFORD
“The city of dreaming spires”, home to the oldest university in the English-speaking world. Ancient, unchanged and dripping with history, Harry Potter fans will even recognise locations from the films.

  • The Old Covered Market
  • The Radcliff Camera
  • The Bodlean Library
  • The quad and interior of one of the Colleges*
  • Visit Christ Church Chapel, which is also Oxford Cathedral
  • A walk through the cobbled back streets
  • Lunch in a characterful old pub

*Interior visits to a College are dependent on their opening times, which are not published until a few days before. This is something I will double-check before our tour so we know exactly what time is best to visit on a given day.

A short drive away, we’ll arrive at a magnificent baroque palace…

BLENHEIM PALACE
Seat of the Dukes of Marlborough and birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill.  Surrounded by idyllic lakes, lawns and landscape, Blenheim is a feast in every way.

  •  Stroll the Capability  Brown designed gardens 
  • The Palace interior with commentary by Blenheim’s own guides
  • The Winston Churchill Museum and the bed he was born in
  • Family photos past and present
  • An Art collection and tapestries to rival many in the world
  • The Palace scandals the interior guides WON’T tell you!
  • Time allowing – a visit to Winston Churchill’s grave in Bladon
