Take a day outside of London and explore the stunning architecture and rich history of two of the most famous cities in the UK, also home to two of the oldest and most famous universities in the UK and the world - Oxford & Cambridge.

This tour usually visits Oxford first, where your tour guide will take you on a walking tour to show you some of the iconic, classic buildings that contribute to the city's distinctive cultural feel.  Then you will have free time to do some additional exploring of this magnificent city with its varied architectural styles from many eras since the 900s - such as The Ashmolean Museum, the Bodleian Library and Christ Church Cathedral - or explore the many shops and cafes.

The tour also visits Cambridge.  Your tour guide will take you to walk up the Tower of Great St. Mary's Church, where entrance is included.  Here you can take in the beautiful architecture and stand where many royals have stood before; this viewing point offers fantastic views of the city.  Then you will have free time for more exploration - see the colleges of the University of Cambridge, go punting or see the manuscript of Winne-the-Pooh at Wren College, written by A.A Milne, who studied at Trinity College in Cambridge.
