Day Coach Tour - Blenheim Palace, Downton Abbey Village & The Cotswolds

With a meet and greet at Victoria Coach Station, you will be directed to your luxury air conditioned coach to begin your day exploring the quintessential English countryside!

If you’re aware of, or a huge fan of the successful hit TV series "Downton Abbey", then you’ll recognise our first stop as the village of Downton. In Bampton you can visit the church, see the hospital cottage and meander through the village green where many scenes were filmed and major events from the show took place.

After a brief scenic drive through winding lanes and cascading hills of the Cotswolds you will next arrive at the idyllic village of Bourton-on-the-Water. Also known as “the Venice of the Cotswold”, spend your afternoon walking along the banks of the River Windrush, explore the local stores for gifts and souvenirs or why not enjoy a traditional afternoon tea in a cafe.

The final highlight of this tour is Blenheim Palace, a World Heritage Site that is currently home to the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough and famously known as the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. With entrance included to the palace you can explore the grand and lavish Palace State Rooms with their stunning portraits and decorative furniture and tapestries. With your park and garden access you can also take a beautiful walk through the incredible landscaped gardens of the palace, designed by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. Following your visit you will be returned to Victoria Train Station where this tour will finish early evening.
