Our Suggestions

Cotswold Countryside

The Cotswolds are where the English themselves go for unspoiled rural villages chock full of antiques, textiles and good food and drink.

Favoured by royalty and celebrity for country houses (Charles and Camilla, and Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes live round about), the Cotswold villages such as Broadway, Chipping Campden and Stow-on-the-Wold will charm you with their ancient inns and thatched houses strung along green lanes dotted with wild roses.

Oxford

Home to England’s oldest and most famous University, the City of Dreaming Spires attracts visitors from all parts of the world. Visit a historic pub, the magnificent Ashmolean Museum or one of the many fascinating colleges.

Blenheim Palace

Blenheim’s grounds, with a jewel of a lake, are a delight for all the family with their miniature railway, children’s play space, butterfly house and acres of flowering shrubs and trees providing lush picnic areas.

The palace is the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill and the historic home of his aunt, American heiress Consuelo Vanderbilt, who married the 8th Duke in 1875. See family photographs and articles belonging to Sir Winston in a special display devoted to Britain’s greatest statesman and then, if you wish, pay your respects at his grave in the tiny neighbouring village of Bladon.
