Day 2
In the morning we travel to Runnymede, location of the sealing of the Magna Carta, to take a river cruise on what can arguably be called the prettiest stretch of the River Thames to the centre of Windsor. We have the rest of the day free to discover this historic town at our own pace.

After breakfast we travel to Oxford, home of Britains oldest university. The City of Dreaming Spires is steeped in history and character and we have the time to explore the town at our own pace. In the afternoon we visit Blenheim Palace, home of the 11th Duke of Marlborough and birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. The Palace is surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens designed by ‘Capability’ Brown.

Day 4
