Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway Heritage Tour

Stratford-upon-Avon & River Avon Cruise (full day)
Forever associated with William Shakespeare, we head to the beautiful town of Stratford-upon-Avon. We start with a sightseeing cruise along the River Avon where we sit back, relax and enjoy the glorious Warwickshire countryside as our guide keeps us entertained with interesting facts about Stratford’s history and Shakespeare.

After our cruise, we have time at leisure to explore Stratford. Fans of Shakespeare can visit the house in which he was born, and there’s a chance to wander the riverside gardens or discover the town’s theatres including the Swan Theatre, home of the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Worcester, Tewkesbury & Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway (full day)
We spend some time in the historic city of Worcester set on the banks of the River Severn. The town is known for its exquisite Royal Worcester porcelain and piquant Worcestershire sauce as well as a magnificent cathedral.

We then head to the delightful Gloucestershire town of Tewkesbury, where there’s time to look around the Abbey with its stunning medieval architecture and wander the narrow streets lined with half-timbered houses and Tudor buildings.

Lastly, we travel to Cheltenham Racecourse where we board our train on the heritage Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway. We embark on a nostalgic journey to Broadway travelling through the spectacular scenery of the Cotswolds with lovely views of sleepy hamlets and villages along the way.

Cotswolds Villages (full day)
We explore some of the Cotswolds’ most beautiful towns and villages. We head first to Bourton-on-the-Water with its low, elegant 18th-century bridges and pretty river banks. There are a range of quaint tea rooms and tempting cafés for you to enjoy. We then make our way to the beautiful market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, renowned for its traditional stone buildings and wonderful collection of artisanal boutiques. Finally, we visit Broadway which boasts a wide main street of picture-perfect cottages, pubs and shops.
